Working through Unspiration

An article by Tablö Creative

Written by Blake Speers

We're very excited to have our first guest post written by Blake Spears; a yogi, vegan travel blogger & content creator from Ontario. We've partnered up to offer our community of unconventional creatives a fresh perspective on a very relatable topic right now in self isolation - feeling uninspired. It might be writer's block due to anxiety, or an inability to work with others the way we are used to. Blake offers some insights as to how we can pull ourselves back into the zone.


What do you crave when you wake up? Do you crave love, creativity, motivation, passion, success? Inspiration is the fuel that makes everything in life so exciting. Due to recent events, the news has taken a lot of excitement out of the days. Sometimes it’s tough to face difficult realities and still search for gratitude. I hope this post gives you some insight on what to do to gain inspiration and that spark to move forward and achieve greatness.

Hello! I’m Blake from yogablake.com. When you’re feeling uninspired, maybe it’s time to take a break and to realign with why you started. Give yourself the gift of time to come back into alignment with why and how you got here in the first place. Remember what motivated you to start that project, relationship, or business! Take a look at the path you’ve followed - with all your eagerness and passion.

Take Requests

When you don’t know what to do next, reflect on the community you’ve built. The people that you serve and guide will guide you. Reach out to help and share kindness. This is your opportunity to share and connect. When you feel uninspired to create, share what others have requested. For example, create content that answers the questions you get direct messages about. This might be a tutorial, a how to, a piece of your day, or a friendly reminder.

Be a Role Model

Imagine how special it would feel if someone you look up to designed a post exactly for your needs. Imagine if you couldn’t find how to start that project and your role model guided you in the right direction. It’s strange to think, but you have lots to teach that other people haven’t started to learn about!  Helping others grow is one of the most fulfilling things I’ve encountered.

Filming and sending a 30 second how-to video through direct message is amazing. And seeing as one person requested this from you, maybe it’s worth showing the rest of your following.

Keep going...

If you’re brand new to social media, this is your time to ask for help. Share shamelessly and be empowered that you started. You’ll come back and find amazing progress. Some of my first videos were trying to find balance in headstands. Slamming my feet and rolling into the walls. Now I can look back and feel so rewarded for my consistency, with lots of thanks to the yoga community.

I hope that you feel a little inspired to ask for help, share relentlessly, and create!
