Lately, I've been in a creative rut. While the weather is getting better, and the sun is shining, I'm finding it really hard to actually motivate myself to create content - which is strange, because that's the only thing that I ever want to do!
Maybe it's a slow burnout of posting two to three times a week to my blog, or twice daily to my Instagram for over three years. Maybe it's that I started my Youtube channel and am finding it hard to think of ideas of videos to film. Whatever the reason, it's been harder lately to create and post content and, because this is now my full-time job, it's a problem. I'm determined to pull out of this rut as quickly as possible, so I've set myself up with a few steps that I truly think will help.
1. Changing My Look
I still remember when I first went blonde. Although it was a huge shock to the system, I felt re-inspired from the change to get out there and start creating. I'm looking to do something equally shocking in the near future, and I can't wait to share the outcome with you.
For me, there's nothing more invigorating that traveling. While I totally felt re-inspired while in Los Cabos, I've since lost the inspiration and have been craving more travel. Brian is heading to Vancouver on business so I decided last minute to tag along. That and the fact that we'll be heading to Portugal and Spain in mid-June I hope will help to re-inspire me. Nothing like a change of scenery to get the creative juices flowing!
3. Call In The Professionals
While changing my look and traveling is good, I need something to shake my out of this rut now. That's why I booked in for photos with my favourite photographer Bettina Bogar next week. I love being around and working with creative, talented people; their motivation and drive always serve as a source of inspiration for me.
