Use your senses to the max!
While tidying up around my desk at home, I discovered one of my original, long-lost collection of recipes, organizational hacks, and tricks that I wanted for my future homestead. I was so excited! I had been stockpiling it since high school. I had some of my friends recipes, lots of articles from magazines ranging from work outs to weekly grocery lists. It’s just an efficient little thing!
I have utilized Pinterest for many things like organizing my wedding theme, gathering recipes, and gawking at home design. It is a wonderful way to discover what’s out there but there is just something great that gets lost with the virtual board.
Having something tangible and in-hand makes things understandable and real.
As humans, most of us learn best through sight and touch with sound incorporated. It’s stimulating to use more than one of the senses together, it’s a brain work-out!
Print your inspirations and stick them where you will see them often, and use them! Organize them in a file box and rumble through them often. I can’t tell you how many time I pin something and say,” oh I’ll cook that soon,” and then end up using a recipe I’ve memorized, or I’ve been bored and not realized I have 10 million cool crafty things I can try in no time with things I have around the house.
Keep inspiration tangible, and you can obtain it. Create more, and be continuously inspired. It’s food for your brain. And overall well-being.
