Know anyone that needs a little–or a lot–of positivity in their life? I think everyone qualifies–who doesn't want to be inspired! No matter how great an attitude you may have, it seems life is always trying to challenge us. Having uplifting things around the house or on your body can help remind you to keep your spirits high. We've rounded up some of the best gifts to give inspiration to yourself and those around you.
Best Gifts to Give Positive Vibes
What we wear is crucial to how we feel. Psychologists have been studying the effects of uniforms and dress on our behavior and mood for decades. The results are powerful. The way we present ourselves to the world directly impacts how we feel. So, let's make sure the messages you're putting out there are positive.
HAYL Apparel – “How Are You Living”
These reversible clothing items encourage healthy self-reflection and discovery. HAYL’s Inside Out campaign reminds us that we don’t need to look for all we seek–love, happiness, success–we already have it within us. The light-weight tanks and comfy sweaters are the perfect gifts for busy moms and dads to kick back and relax in, while also sending kids a message about positive values.
Nixplay Frame – Wi-Fi Digital Photo Frame
Using the Nixplay Web App, you can add photos to your frame from anywhere. This is a great gift idea for grandparents that most likely don't have–or understand–smartphones. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to send our Gram photos but know her phone can't handle it and it would only confuse her. Now, I can keep her and Papa in the loop by sending pics to their photo frame. The app even allows you to add captions!
Customizable Metal Cuff Bracelet – “We are Stardust and Magic”
Sometimes it helps to remember that we're all from the same substance. Someone else's bad day doesn't need to get you down. Instead, remind yourself that this person is just like you and their energy is off. Letting them vent and giving them a smile takes nothing from you and brightens the world just a smidgen.
Choose your own motivational words or saying and have them put onto a beautiful piece of jewelry. It's surprisingly effective.
Bleeding Hearts by Tami Reeves
This book gives an incredibly important perspective. It's the story of ‘the other woman.' Before you think this is some sordid affair, it's actually about the friendship formed after a man's spouse falls victim to Alzheimer's disease. When the mind of your partner is gone, it's natural to seek support elsewhere. When you become a caregiver, you find yourself needing your own support system to deal with the many challenges thrown your way. You may find this inspiration through tears–you've been warned.
Natural Disaster by Ginger Zee
Sometimes the best inspiration comes from knowing you're not alone in failure. Misery loves company right? Well, take it from us. We are A Magical Mess after all. This book is incredibly relatable.
ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee pulls back the curtain on her life in Natural Disaster. Ginger grew up in small-town Michigan where she developed an obsession with weather as a young girl. Ginger opens up about her lifelong battle with crippling depression, her romances that range from misguided to dangerous, and her tumultuous professional path. This cyclone of stories may sound familiar to some-it's just that Ginger's personal tempests happened while she was covering some of the most devastating storms in recent history, including a ferocious tornado that killed a legend in the meteorology field.
This book is for all the mistake makers who have learned to forgive others and themselves-even in the aftermath of man-made, or in this case Zee-made, disasters. It's a story that every young woman should read, a story about finding love and finding it in yourself.
Beloved by Good Morning America's audience, Ginger is a daily presence for millions. Zee's gained fame for her social media presence which is as unfiltered as Natural Disaster-from baby barf to doggy doo-doo. She's shattered the glass ceiling for women in meteorology, but admits here first, she's the one natural disaster she couldn't have forecast.
Back-Saving Lap Desk and Posture Stand
Doesn't sound inspirational? Well, if you're recovering from something that has you on bed rest, the ability to remain productive is the most uplifting feeling in the world. I've been using this crazy-customizable lap desk to work from every position. I'll be having surgery soon, and it's going to be a life-saver.
You Are A Badass
I can't tell you how much this book helped Jen and I snap out of our funks. I didn't even know she came out with another book about money! We must have it immediately–and the daily calendar. I want Jen Sincero to be my best friend and life coach. Reading her books and seeing her motivational quotes every day is probably as close as I can get, so I'll take it.
I also included her book in my post about how to build confidence, along with other great works. Check it out!
