We find inspiration in books and movies, and, more often than not, each other, but one of the easiest ways to keep your inspiration up is to surround yourself with inspiring spaces. Whether you’re decorating a small corner or taking on your entire bedroom, making sure that you’re putting together a space that is comfortable and perfect for keeping you moving toward your dreams is essential.
What’s more inspiring than looking up and seeing a quote or a phrase you love reminding you that you can achieve anything you put your mind to? Whether you print out quotes that you find online, hand letter your own reminders and positive phrases, or find little pieces of decor that say nice things, add some motivation to your space with words! Sometimes you just need to read “You can do this!” to remind yourself that you really can.
No matter what your style is, a little bit of greenery is perfect for literally bringing your space to life. Plants are calming, good for air quality, and beautiful to look at. Find a succulent, a trailing plant, or even some small flowers and use them to add a little extra dose of tranquility to your space.
We use music to work out, to entertain us, and more. Don’t forget to give yourself a way to add inspirational and focusing tunes. It’s also a good idea to have a playlist of all the songs that motivate you so they’re ready when you need them.
Having the right lighting in your space affects your mood, and yes, your inspiration. Make sure that if you aren’t lucky enough to have good natural lighting, that you use lamps to your advantage to create the ultimate serene space!
No matter what you do with your space, make sure it matches your personality. If your room is designed after someone else’s wants and needs, it won’t work for you. If you love unicorns, put unicorns everywhere! The more your room feels like you, the more you’ll love it.
