get inspired – take a vacation from the “shoulds”

Posted on: March 2, 2011

Feeling uninspired? Perhaps it’s because of an unending sense of obligations – the Shoulds. All those things you Have to Do. Even if we logically know they’re important – family obligations, work, etc., they can weigh us down.

Sometimes the best way to get inspired is to stop doing that which doesn’t inspire us. Now, this doesn’t mean to eschew all responsibilities and run away to Disneyland. Rather, pay attention to what feels like a drag. Once you release the weight, you may find you have room to connect with what gives you energy, and provides greater connection with the world around you.

Action: Even if it’s for just a few hours, allow yourself some true “free” time to dally about and do anything you fancy.

Thanks to the wonderful and inspiring Alicia Dattner for the title. She’s having a should-free day.
