Take a 20 second vacation. When you’re bogged down in the day-to-day, you may need a reminder that there is a big, beautiful world beyond the car, laundry room, or office. We can reconnect with that world in different ways. Try finding a picture that inspires you – maybe it’s a photo of someone you love, or a place you dream of visiting. Tape it up somewhere visible, like the bathroom mirror, your car’s dashboard, or your desk drawer where you keep the staples and the emergency supply of chocolate. When you come across the picture, take a deep breath, allow yourself a 20-second fantasy, and move on. Visual triggers can really help with inspiration and motivation. You’ll be surprised how powerful your “mini-vacation” is!
