Everyone has days when “inspired” is the last word they would use to describe their mood. The good news is that while inspiration cannot be forced, there are some simple tips to follow that can result in inspiration striking.

Calming down your mind is a good start. Worrying over your bad mood or lack of inspiration is just going to make things worse, so the first thing to do is to just relax. The next thing you can do is to keep both your mind and your eyes open. Take a look at the world around you – the people, the trees, buildings, nature and everything else as well. All these things can be doors to inspiration, and you should attempt to look at them all without judgment or resentment, calmly appreciating and paying attention to everything.

Meditation is a very good tip. Those who find the time to meditate regularly often find inspiration much more easily.
