How to Keep Your Inspiration Battery Charged

As a creative writer, I see inspiration as a battery that needs to be filled with ideas. However, like all batteries, it requires maintenance to function properly. That’s why I make it a daily practice to take care of the amount of creativity that I maintain in my battery.

Think of your creativity as a battery that needs to be filled with a limited amount of inspiration and energy. Certain activities can drain it completely, while others can help recharge it. Over the years, I have experimented with various activities to find out what works for me.

One of my main sources of inspiration is nature. I find that nature bathing, or simply being in nature, helps me recharge my creativity. However, this may not work for everyone. We are all different and may find that what works for one person may not necessarily work for another.

To find new and inspiring ideas, I like to turn to the work of modern illustrators. I enjoy looking at drawings of different dimensions and imagining unreachable worlds. I also love spending hours analyzing images of fictional characters, looking for those that are not common, new cartoons that did not become part of the mainstream.

Reading is also a great source of inspiration for me. Recently, I read “Monkey King” by Wu Cheng’en, which was an amazing experience. I loved discovering the secrets of a culture so far from my own. It was a journey that I didn’t want to end.

Music is another great source of inspiration for me. I recently attended a tango concert, which was an amazing experience. Seeing the musicians live on stage was truly inspiring, and I would love to have more opportunities like this.

Lastly, I cannot stress enough the importance of physical activity. Taking care of your mind and body is crucial to keeping your inspiration battery charged. That’s why I have a daily routine of meditation and exercises that help me be in the best possible condition.

In conclusion, everyone’s inspiration battery is unique and requires individual maintenance. Finding what works for you is a journey that requires experimentation and self-reflection. Remember that all human activities require creativity and inspiration, so no matter what you do, always take care of your inspiration battery, and it will take care of you.

  1. We are on somewhat on the same wave length!
    It seems as if when the universe wants a message transmitted it finds souls open enough to listen and do!
    Loved your blog!!

  2. Being outdoors and walking is my best way to recharge. My mind roams freely on the walks. Reading works for me too. When I am into a book I love, I go slowly, savouring it like fine food. The contents nourish my soul the way a meal does my body. Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us, Sebastian.

  3. I really loved this, Sebastian. I’ve been in survival mode for a while now and haven’t been making time to feed my creative or replenish. Being by water in solitude is great for me and this is the second reminder in 24 hours that I need to make time for that. Great inspiring post. Thank you so much.

  4. Like you I recharge my creative batteries via music, physical exercise, reading, and travelling, I have also commenced volunteering for NFP organisations and this more altruistic activity feeds my soul and opens lines of communication with people that I have not previously encountered.

  5. Sebastian:

    This is excellent advice. Often I forget to recharge my battery until I am in danger of getting burned out. Thank you.
