The Best Way to Keep Your Creative Vibes High
Have you ever had a really great idea that you were beyond excited about? The idea floated into your mind and you instantly became obsessed. You started plotting and planning, writing down ideas, and scouring the internet for inspiration, and then…boom. The wind was completely knocked out of your sails.
Chances are, that “inspiration” you were getting online completely overwhelmed you to the point that you have now totally talked yourself out of the idea completely. After looking at 39420482 Instagram accounts, reading 9842 blogs, and listening to 24812 podcasts, you felt totally zapped.
Thoughts may have popped in your head like:
It’s going to take way too long to get where I want to be.
Everyone’s already doing this. What’s the point?
What do I have to offer that’s unique?
I don’t know enough about this to jump into it.
Why would anyone care?
If any of this sounds familiar, I want you to know you are not alone. I call this “inspiration exhaustion” and it’s the worst place to be when you’re in the process of creating anything.
Here’s how to instantly raise your vibe and get back to that juicy, delicious place of ingenuity we all love to be in:
Take a digital detox! Take a few hours off. Take a few days off if you’re ballsy enough (I highly recommend this if you can). Pull yourself away from the internet and get out and live! The experiences you have offline will energize you and get you back to where you need to be in no time. You’ll also realize there’s a big, beautiful world out there beyond Instagram.
Create a personal power mantra. Writing and repeating a mantra that reminds you of your power is key. Something like, “I have been given a vision for a reason, and I am worthy of bringing beautiful things to this world. People love what I have to offer.” Repeat this mantra each morning when you wake up, and whenever you’re about to start working on that thing you love.
Get real with yourself. It’s easy to look around on Instagram and think everyone is 10 steps ahead of you and get swept up in a pity party, but the reality is everyone started somewhere. Remind yourself that all of the big ideas that inspire you were all seeds of thought at one time. The playing field is even in the universe. It’s up to you to bust through all the negative thoughts and keep showing up to see your vision through. The truth is, there are people out there with less talent than you who are killing it. The only difference? They started sooner and stuck with it.
