Brewing Your Personal Brand of Zing

You came across a catchy inspirational quote while surfing the web, downloading or screen grabbing it is paramount, you can't afford to lose it, not this time. Most of us can relate to this. The effect is short-lived, we will be needing another quick fix in no time. The brain then becomes over-saturated to the point of being dulled.

External motivation won't always work for us, even if they are from a million sources or from your favorite author. When this happens, you have to be your own muse. What we are looking for is within us, we don't need to search elsewhere. On days when you feel uninspired, try the suggestions below.
  • Breathe. The fact that you are still breathing is a big inspiration, it is pure wonder. Breathe in and out slowly, focusing on your breath for some seconds. 
  • Remember that time when you felt like you've reached rock bottom, but miraculously, you got back on your feet. If you could overcome that, then you can overcome anything, this too will pass, it's already passing. 
  • Make a list of all your wonderful qualities, including the blessings that you have. Reflect on how abundant your life is. 
  • Relive the moment when you did something funny. 
  • Helping others when you are in dire need of help sounds ridiculous, however, altruism has both healing and calming effects. It changes the way you view your troubles. 
  • When all else fails, what we need is an outlet. Vent your frustration on paper, write about it. It doesn't have to be grammatically correct. Pour out your heart as you would to a trusted friend. Rip the note after you have finished writing and reading it. 
Don't wait for inspiration, start brewing it.
