Have you ever wondered how you can raise your spirits and be inspired - a level higher than you currently are? Fear not; nothing is lost. You have many places to find sources of inspiration and it usually comes from little and simple stuff. Read on to find out what I mean.
Here are 10 sources where you can get daily doses of inspiration:
1) Transforming your monotonous work into a good playing game
You divide up your work into parts and pace yourself all day to complete a part you have scheduled for the day. If you make it, you reward yourself by helping yourself to a bar of dark chocolate or a mug of Star Bucks coffee. If you don't make it, you miss your reward and work doubly harder the next day to make your day and eventually give yourself the opportunity to reward yourself. This game plan will work wonders, and you will be surprised at how much you achieve and feel inspired per day.
2) Viewing and staring at a rainbow
It's weekend time and it has rained for some time. Now there is a brightly colored rainbow in the sky. You nudge your spouse to go out in the grassy fields, sit down and watch the rainbow and admire. You snuggle each other and keep your eyes on the rainbow and be inspired!!
