Feeling depleted and lacking inspiration can make even the simplest tasks seem like a daunting challenge, especially for busy mothers.

The responsibilities of parenthood don't go away, even when our motivation falters.

Whether it's facing a pile of dirty dishes after a family dinner or endless loads of laundry, finding the inspiration to keep going can feel

like an impossible task.

Do you know that feeling when you've had a long day, and finally get a moment of peace in the evening, only to be faced with a sink full of dirty dishes that need cleaning?

You open the dishwasher, but it's already full, and your energy is fading fast.

You'd rather scroll through social media than scrub plates. It can be challenging to reignite that spark and approach these tasks with enthusiasm and a sense of joy.

However, it's important to remember that inspiration can be summoned at any time, and often from the smallest of actions.

How to Find Inspiration

Here are three simple sources of inspiration that I rely on throughout my day:

1. Go for a walk

According to Stanford News, walking boosts creative inspiration.

Sometimes, when you feel confined in the walls of your home, stepping outside can help alleviate that feeling. The rhythm of your steps, the fresh air, and the change in surroundings work together to clear your mind and stimulate creativity.

A brisk walk can be all you need to come back home feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle any challenges ahead.

When I'm feeling down or just not myself, going for a walk usually helps me feel better. I like to put on some music and slip into my plantar fascitis-friendly Skechers shoes. This way I can also get some exercise while I'm at it.

The saying "killing two birds with one stone" applies here as I both get my daily workout and derive inspiration in the process.

While the environment may not always take precedence, I find solace in walking outdoors.

It offers a therapeutic escape, allowing you to delve into your thoughts without the distractions of everyday responsibilities.

Embrace this moment of solitude to prioritize self-care and revel in the tranquility, if only for a brief respite.

2. Do a Brain Dump

The act of writing down your thoughts can be a great way to declutter your mind and find motivation.

The 'brain dump' method is a simple exercise that can help you sort through your jumbled thoughts and gain clarity, leading to inspired action.

Even the most mundane tasks can become achievable goals when you visualize them.

Transcribing my fleeting thoughts to my journal is my calming ritual, easing any lingering unease.

I discovered this practice through author Mel Robbins, creator of the brilliant The 5 Second Journal. This journal is concise and no-nonsense because time is our most precious resource.

Given the time constraints we face daily, I gravitate towards efficiency. Therefore, jotting down my musings in a journal resonated with me profoundly.

If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend giving it a go.

It doesn't require much time, and you'll experience a profound sense of tranquility once it's off your mind.

3. Listening to an Audiobook

Listening to someone else's words can often give us a new outlook on things.

An audiobook can be the perfect companion for this.

Whether you prefer a gripping tale or non-fiction, immersing yourself in a different narrative can provide a refreshing break that can renew your passion and purpose.

If you are someone who appreciates the art of multitasking, imagine the joy of listening to an engaging audiobook while doing your daily housework routine.

This clever combination can infuse mundane tasks with a sense of enjoyment and turn routine activities into moments of enrichment and pleasure.

By immersing yourself in the intricate storytelling of the author, you can blend the ordinary with a touch of literary magic and make your daily chores feel less like chores.

To all the busy moms out there, it's important to remember that feeling uninspired at times doesn't make you any less of a supermom.

In those moments, small actions like going for a walk, doing a brain dump, or losing yourself in an audiobook can help reignite your inspiration.

It's crucial to prioritize self-care and make time for these activities, as they not only boost your well-being but also empower you to tackle daily tasks with a renewed spirit.

Keep searching for those sparks – they might be closer than you think.
