The Best Resources For Motivation When You’re Feeling Burnt Out

While being an entrepreneur/blogger may seem glamorous, it’s not all fun and games. Sure, there are days when the ideas flow like water and the creativity never ends. But, more often than not, writer’s block happens, which is usually accompanied by a lack of motivation, and a heaping dose of doubt. I often find myself looking for inspiration or resources for motivation.

I admit that there have been days when I feel overwhelmed by everything I’m doing/want to do. My thoughts can get the best of me, and I start to question what I’m up to.

But that’s not the end of the story. (Phew!)

Whenever I start to feel doubtful or uninspired, I take a step back to clear my head and get my bearings again. I’m sharing with you a few of my go-to resources for getting back in the groove and getting my motivation back up again.

Resources For Motivation When You’re Feeling Burnt Out

1. Career Girl Daily

This website should be in the back pocket of every ambitious woman. Career Girl Daily is a daily part of my routine, and I have the mobile app to make sure I never miss out.

I seriously love this resource and it always picks me up when I’m feeling uninspired. CGD publishes new content every day, and they are always exciting and interesting. The topics vary from interviews, advice pieces, beauty tips, and more. Plus, I love CGD is all online, so I can surf through easily on my phone or laptop.

2. Bloglovin’

I really connect well with bloggers (duh, I am one), and their work inspires me. I read so many different blogs that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of, and I sometimes miss posts from my favorite people.

However, Bloglovin’ makes it way too easy to follow lots of different blogs, and never miss out. All you have to do is search for + follow your favorite bloggers, and your feed will start to populate with new posts. I always leave Bloglovin’ feeling super stoked to blog again, take cute Instagram photos, etc.

Bloglovin' is a great resource for motivation when you are feeling burnt out in your work and life.

P.S. You can follow me on Bloglovin’ here  or click on the photo above to stay up to date when I publish new posts 😉

3. YouTube Creatives

I’ve gotten to the point where I probably watch 200% more YouTube than TV/Netflix combined. It may sound weird, but YouTube is actually my guilty pleasure and unapologetic addiction.

Besides being wildly entertaining, YouTube can also be really inspiring and creative. A lot of bloggers and freelancers have taken to YouTube to expand their reach and empire. A few of my favorite creatives have made channels, and I find myself going back to their channel week after week for a dose of inspiration.

Here are a few of my favorite YouTubers to get inspired:

Emma Mumford.

Emma is a wildly successful blogger who talks a lot about how she manifested her success and experiences. I love her bubbly personality and optimism towards life.

Casey Neitstat.

Casey’s videos are extremely entertaining. I binged watched his videos until 3 a.m. the other night, no joke. Casey has beat the odds and is extremely transparent and real about his everyday life as an entrepreneur and filmmaker. His motivation towards his work and zest is contagious.

Morgan Timm. 

I’ve met Morgan in person before (check out my post about College Fashion Week here), and she is every bit as genuine in person as she is in her online work. I love her channel, and I always learn something new from her.
