When your inspiration and motivation slow down what do you do? Drink a cup of coffee? Read inspiring blog posts like this? Or maybe you look to your left and find an inspirational poster?
We like to combine all three.
Inspiration is a funny thing. One minute you’re inspired to tackle a daunting task, the next minute, you’re wishing you were outside enjoying the heat and playing frisbee with your dog. In business, inspiration is one of those things that are the key to ensuring you can act and take steps towards your goals day in and day out. It’s this inspiration that allows us to stay motivated when things get hard and make the decision to do the things that will help us grow personally and professionally.
Art has always played a role in human psychology. We place art throughout our homes because it sets the mood and often times it can reflect to our guests what we’re all about. Art is a beautiful thing that can connect with us on both an intellectual and emotional level.
A study from the University of Westminster found that participants’ stress levels decreased after a lunchtime visit to an art gallery. In business, stress is often high and art can help in decreasing those stress levels while driving inspiration. We’ve spent hundreds of hours creating and designing inspirational and motivational posters but also some time looking for some of the best online.
Here are 20 inspiring and beautiful posters that would reduce stress and drive inspiration for any office, startup or entrepreneur:
