2. PODCAST + BLOGS + DOCUMENTARIES + MUSIC
If I want to be inspired to create/grow/blog I listen to podcast or browse a cool blog. (My favorite is podcast "How I Built This.") I'm inspired by the commitment people make to creating content. Whether it's visually or audible, when someone takes the time to create it inspires me to do the same. (Currently my favorite documentary is Planet Earth on Netflix, also love everything shopwalkinlove.com does!)
(I'm not much of a reader - womp womp - but if you are, totally add that to the list!)
And yes, I do mean binge watching Netflix. During busy season I typically take some time during the week to veg. I will sit in bed and watch Netflix - maybe even for a few hours. If my body is feeling tired, I give it rest. Between spin, climbing, training for a half iron man, daily business tasks, shoots during the week, and weddings - I need time to rest. And I've made a commitment to not feel guilty when I take that time. It's OK to have to slow down. You need energy to be inspired!
No surprise I added this one! Obviously, this doesn't happen every week or every month. And maybe it doesn't seem practical in your life at all. But travel doesn't have to look a private island, drinking margaritas and getting massages. Traveling could look like a day trip to a city that's a few hours from you or maybe saving up for a bigger trip! There is so much world, go see it!
