Erika wrote a really thoughtful piece on "cultivating inspiration." She lives in New York, so I feel like that's an easy task, right? Maybe not. One piece of advice she gives is to read a book, specifically more than fifty pages:
Read 50 pages: Unsurprisingly, a good books is my go to source of inspiration. My rule is one of fifty pages. If I can take the time to turn off my phone, get comfortable, and read for this length, I'm usually engaged enough to finish or motivated to do something else. If this feels like a lot, consider reading a magazine or a newspaper. With a constant stream of information, it can feel inspiring and refreshing to read something less instant and more thoughtful.
