Stay Inspired by Keeping Your Serotonin Up

So it's mid January and you are wondering...geez I felt so good about my goals on January 1.  Today?  Not sure.

Well if you created a visual of your dream, a goal map, a collage, a list, a blogpost, fear not there is a simple way to keep yourself inspired.

You simply need to review what you created, dreamed, listed, arranged, set out as an intention.

But first, let's re-adjust your chemistry.

Get up - do 10 jumping jacks.  Or 20 push-ups.  Drink an 8 oz glass of water.  Or sing a song at the top of your lungs.

Now, sit down, sit back, shut your eyes and do a little daydreaming.  Positive daydreaming - so put the critic in the corner and dream the best possible scenario.

Imagine yourself in that new job, on that vacation, feeling slim, eating well, living loved, being more creative.

Imagine it as if it is occurring right now.  Live it in your mind fully!  Imagine that new boss, the myriad of possibilities.  Surf on that seashore.  Climb that trail in the mountains that you love. Kiss that imagined or actual partner that you have.  Feel it in your body, your cells, dream, dream, dream.

Guess what?  You just raised your serotonin level and you inspired yourself.  So let go of whatever list you have going for a second and ask yourself, "What is one thing I can do right now, in this inspired moment to get things moving?"  Write it down and go do it.

Call that person with that lead on a new job. Write that bio. Draw that picture. Place a personal ad. Run around the block.  Try something new.

One small act everyday will lead to you living that secret dream you have be housing in your brain.  Get it out of there and into here.  Real life.  You deserve it.

Up your creative genius today. #meanit

  1. Simple, direct and to the point. Nice post :-)
    It's such a simple thing to do, get in alignment or in a good frame of mind(being) before doing.
