How to stay inspired and motivated during quarantine

By now you’ve looked at your walls in your home and know every dot and speckle. I know I have, especially in my home office. But this past week, I decided that I needed to create something so that I can stay inspired and motivated during quarantine. As a graphic designer I create digital mood boards for my clients but as I too have to adjust with the times and needed to go back to the drawing board.

I miss telling stories with photography and in that an idea was sparked to create an in home studio where I can still be present and create. But I needed a physical mood board that I could feel, touch and see in order for me to be inspired and focused on who I actually am.

Inspiration and motivation during quarantine

What it did for me: 

  • It helped me to go back to the foundation of my business
  • I paused to add in things that are true for me and my business
  • It helped me focus on my true self, eliminating comparison
  • It inspired me

Who this is for: 

You. I say this because we all have something we can work toward and focus on in our families, business or interests. As we are at home, we can take this time to focus on our foundation and values. It gives us something new and fresh to look forward to even in crisis and loss. Because on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have something to look forward to. Good is coming.
