Tonight’s episode is all about being inspired and where we find our inspiration. To be honest, I sometimes really struggle with being constantly creative and being inspired to create content every day. Luckily I have some ways of overcoming these moments which I wanted to share with you.
Where I find my inspiration.
Pinterest for me is a place I love to find inspiration as its mainly visual. I can go here to research for shoots I want to create or outfit styling ideas, street style, runway looks, home decor… pretty much everything. It also then suggests similar images you may like and the vortex of pinterest opens up and you can be lost here for hours.
Grabbing a couple of magazines across multiple categories can spark inspiration. I love picking up the fashion and lifestyle magazines and see how they layout their market pages, how they shot their editorials and general topics they’re touching upon each month.
I sometimes have my best ideas when i’m chatting with friends. Its so important to not get stuck in your own bubble and you can really feed off others creativity and be inspired by the people around you by simply having a conversation.
The power of silence can also come into play. I find I can have a great idea when i’m on a plane or staring out a window, when you’re off the computer/phone and all you have are your own thoughts.
The worst thing I think is to force yourself to be creative. If its not working then you need to reset yourself. Getting some fresh air, going for a run/walk and getting your mind off whatever you’re trying to do could actually be the best thing for you. You may even have that moment of clarity mid walk where everything falls into place.
I would love to know where you find your inspiration and if you have any advice on how you overcome being uninspired.
