4 of Our Favorite Ways to Find Inspiration

The kids are back in school and now it's time to recenter and refocus on you. Our August #LevelUpYear post is here to help you find inspiration that can help you renew your dedication to your goals. 

Let Nature Be Your Guide

Louisville and Lexington have some beautiful places you can turn to when you need some inspiration. In Louisville, a walk across the Big Four Bridge at night has a way of allowing you clear your head and look out at the Ohio River to get your ideas flowing. The Falls of the Ohio are another beautiful area to spend time in to explore nooks and crannies and maybe discover something that was there, within you all along. A hike through Bernheim Forest as we head into fall can be a magical way to spend an afternoon.

In Lexington, find inspiration with a romp in the park with your favorite four-legged friend at Jacobson Park. Breathe deeply and admire the beauty of nature at the Floracliff Nature Sanctuary. Transport yourself through time with a visit to Nostalgia Station Toy Museum. Thinking of yesteryear may help you unlock some of the creativity that was so abundant during your childhood.

Take A Class

What better way to find inspiration than to take a class with Level Up? Our experts are friendly, knowledgable and will help you learn a new craft or skill while having a great time (and there's usually wine, too!). The best part is that it's a low-pressure way to learn and you get to do it surrounded by all the great people around town who take our classes. Have you checked out our schedule of upcoming classes?

Time For A TED Talk

Brené Brown's TED Talk on vulnerability has been viewed millions of times for a reason. In the talk she shows you how to set yourself free to possibility by opening yourself up to vulnerability. You have far more to gain than you have to lose. We promise.
