Sometimes we feel as if the hustle and bustle of work, university, school or day-to-day humdrum activities squeeze the creativity and colour out of our daily lives. Do not fret, my little blog-lovers, for there are a few simple ways to remind you that the world is big and there are so many things to love about it!
Watch the Sunset or Sunrise
That large, glowing orb up in the sky is the same Sun referenced in every work of literature, every motion picture, and every song – ever. If this doesn’t make you think about how old the earth and the sun and the moon are and revel in awe, then the sheer beauty of the colours bouncing off earth’s atmosphere during these times every day should be enough to invigorate your senses and give you daily motivation. Catch the sunrise to set you in motion, or sunset to unwind from your day - you won’t regret it.
Take a few minutes out of each day to do something creative
You don’t need to be an artist to express yourself. Feeling angry? Throw some red paint on a piece of paper. Enjoying the way the flowers outside have bloomed? Take a few photographs of them. Feeling experimental? Open up a how-to YouTube video and learn an instrument. You will feel more excited if you dedicate time each day to being a bit creative.
We’ve all heard it before, many times – exercise makes you happier, it invigorates your mind. But it wouldn’t be so prevalent if it weren’t TRUE! Even just 20 minutes of exercise in the morning will set you up mentally (as well as physically) to get your tasks done each day – with a smile on your face. So get out there! Run, jump, Zumba… whatever you like.
Focus any excess spare time on doing something you love
Whether it is knitting, drawing, hula hooping, watching theatre productions or playing guitar, make sure you leave time each day for something that you love to do. This is your life, and you need to take inspiration from anything you enjoy.
