Seeing your thoughts laid out visually is bound to inspire you. It doesn't have to include a bedazzled U2 shirt like Sutton's from The Bold Type, but what harm can it do?

If you're stuck in a rut, a quick way to change your mindset is to download some new albums. Or if you're feeling like Grace and Brandon from The Fosters you could always make your own music to get into a new creative groove.

7. Try to have a leisurely breakfast.

Try and plan your schedule so that you have some time for yourself in the morning. If you can take a few minutes to chill out, think through your goals and maybe laugh over a pastry like Elliot from Young & Hungry, then you can approach the rest of the day with a lot more purpose and calm.

8. Read a book.

It's important to regularly take some time out for yourself. It could be a bath, a new candle or, if you're feeling adventurous like Jane from The Bold Type, a crazy new beauty treatment. Just put aside some time for you and really relax.

10. Put the phone down.

Every now and then it's good to detox from endless emails, push notifications, and texts. Whether you're prompted by a big event or you just 'can't even' like Alexis from Famous In Love, a little time away from the phone can help you be more present in the moment.
