The Power of Motivating Imagery
We all have days when we know we have to get things done – perhaps there is a deadline to meet, a school meeting to get to, or a lengthy blog post or article to be written, and we just can’t seem to muster the energy to get ourselves to it.
Now, I don’t feel that anyone should ever push themselves when what their bodies and spirits are telling them is that they should take a time out and rest. If that is the case, then it is best to honor the instincts and gut feelings around this and take some time for yourself.
However, there are times when we may be feeling unmotivated, and although we feel healthy in body and mind, we need a little nudge in the right direction – something to give us that breath of fresh air that will allow us to get through to the other side of what needs doing.
I personally find using simple imagery to be a very powerful technique, as it allows the mind chatter to cease, and it automatically helps the breath to regulate, thereby sending a sense of calm to the nervous system.
Think about this for a moment – what happens to you when look at a picture of your children?
Are there pictures or artwork that seem to help you recall why you are working so hard every day? The power of motivating imagery is strong and vast, and can work for you in your everyday life despite many challenges you may be experiencing.
Accessing even just one ‘right’ image that works for you and your overall peace and harmony can help you get through almost anything.
Using Motivating Imagery Wherever You Go
When you are at home and feeling lackluster, is there any certain place or object that you turn your focus to? Perhaps photos from a past vacation, photos of your friends and family, or a painting that you have loved for many years?
Looking at images like these that refresh us and remind us of the love around us and the good times we have had can help us to tap back in to that joy that we remember on a deep level.
It usually isn’t difficult to find motivation when you’re at home because you’re in the midst of all that you’ve worked hard to accomplish. But what happens when you’re at work and dreading every minute of it?
When you’re at work and your boss has just finished his annoying rant, or your co-worker just finished disturbing your peace, you need a quick source of motivation to keep pushing you forward.
Where can you find that burst of energy when you’re in the middle of a busy workday? If you work out of home and at a computer, you don’t have to look any further than your computer for all the motivating imagery you need.
You can download motivating wallpapers to your computer desktop so when you’re in the middle of those stressful moments, you have a source at your fingertips to inspire and motivate you.
These inspirational images can serve as a powerful reminder of why you work so hard. If nothing else, you can lose yourself in the image for just a moment. This can help ground you and allow you to shift perspective, on the spot, and in the moment.
A moment of refreshment recharges you and gives you the power to attack your to-do lists in a positive and systematic way. There are many types of inspirational wallpapers for you to choose from.
Many of them are simply an inspirational image, while others combine a quote or affirmation with a scenic picture. These can be very powerful because they use images and words, the two things that the mind responds to the best.
Whether you’re sitting in your office or away on business, you may just need something calming, familiar, and reassuring to bring back your motivation and inner peace. The great thing about the wallpapers is that they don’t take up any space, they’re often free, and no one has to know they’re there.
You can use these images whenever you’re at your computer and need a helping hand. This is a quick and easy tool that has the power to recharge your batteries during a tough day.
