Visual content is pretty much the new obsession for everyone, these days. Utilizing both social networking and the sharing potential of images, it has created a whole new way to show who you are, and show others the same.
But it has also shown a new way of getting inspired. For what, you might ask? Just life! There is so much you can use visual web for when it comes to diversifying your day to day. Here are five ways people are doing so already.
Get DIY Inspired!
I am a major upcycling junkie, it has to be said. So when I saw the enormous following of DIY and crafters that are on Pinterest and Instagram, I went nuts. From simple ideas for reusing materials not so easily recycled, to completely redecorating your home using your own style, you can find a ton of inspiration here.
Just the other day I saw a photo showing how a woman turned a collection of old mason jars into a set of solar powered lights for her backyard. Not only is that ecofriendly, but creative and very useful for those summer evening BBQ’s.
Get Overcome With Wanderlust!
I have always believed that we all have an avid traveler within us. Some give into it, some just yearn to get away. But if you are wanting to pick a location to visit, you should definitely look on Pinterest.
People post their own photos, and pin photos that they have found on others sites. All breathtaking and sure to get the wanderlust pumping. Print Me Poster has one of the hugest collections of travel photography I’ve ever seen!
If nothing else, you can create a great bucket list.
Get A New Look!
Because Pinterest is mainly targeting a female demographic, it isn’t a surprise to find how much there is on beauty and fashion. You can get information on new products from the company yourselves, or just see pics and tips from friends or people around the whole. Including those who show how to make trendy and beautiful outfits from thrift store items.
My favorite are the photos describing how to make your own natural beauty products. I have thrown out all my chemical filled soaps and started making lovely smelling ones myself. My skin has never looked better!
Tired of the same old menu at your house? Spice it up, with some of the best cooking tips on the web. Recipes, photos to break down and ingredients lists for new dishes, it is all here. Plus, some really cute ideas for foodies, whether you are a meat eater, a vegetarian or a vegan. This is a kitchen lovers paradise.
One of my favorite ideas I saw recently were mini pancake skewer desserts with whipped cream and strawberry slices. I loved it so much that I made them myself to serve at my daughter’s birthday party. They were a huge hit!
Most of us don’t like exercise that much. Let’s face it, when it comes to the choice between going out for a run and sitting on our butts watching Scrubs reruns, most of us are going to choose Dr. Cox and nix the Nike. It is just part of our lazy culture, one that is common at this point all over the world.
If you need inspiration to get moving, this site is full of it. Workout tips, training schedules, motivational posters…they have it all here. By the time you have closed the window, you will be eager to get that workout out of the way.
