Don’t Force the Inspiration
Remember that true inspiration comes naturally, often when you aren’t expecting it. If you try to force yourself to come up with a new idea, that idea will likely never come. Instead, live your life being more curious, talking to people, getting out into the world, and really paying attention to all those little things that people often take for granted.

Take a Break to Help You Refocus Your Energy
Everyone needs a break! You need a rest, downtime, and free time. If you are constantly running around from one task to the next, you never have time to actually be inspired by anything. Try to schedule more free time in your daily life, maybe starting with your morning or nighttime routine. You can meditate, listen to music, or sit in silence and write in a journal.
Look to Others for Inspiration
Look at the people in your life, people who you admire, people who have made an impact on your life. These are the people who can help you find more inspiration. This is not about copying ideas or trying to imitate what others do, but using their life as a way to feel inspired yourself.
Maybe you hear stories of how your grandmother defeated all odds and started her business from scratch in tough times, or your neighbor completely transforms his life, and you feel inspired by the amazing feats people will go to for their passions and dreams.

Make it a habit to express gratitude every day, whether it is by writing what you are grateful for in your journal, or you just say it silently to yourself whenever you feel appreciative of something. Sometimes, inspiration comes from the smallest acts. You begin to think more about what you are grateful for each day, both situations and people. You might feel inspired by selfless acts you witness, by people who have done something very kind for you, or just by the little things that bring you joy every day.
