Daily Inspiration Quotes for Every Day of the Week


Stay motivated, stay inspired.

Trying to stay motivated and inspired each day is essential if you are going to achieve your goals, but it can be tiring to keep up.

That’s why we love daily inspiration quotes. What could be better than a quick dose of wisdom or inspiration to set you on the right foot for the day?

How can daily inspiration quotes make your days more amazing? An inspiring quote can do more than you think:

  1. Set the tone, theme, or intention for your day.
  2. Turn your day around for the better, shifting negative feelings to the opposite end of the spectrum. A quote makes looking on the bright side easier so you can let go of the little things, remember to be present, and slow down.
  3. Motivate you when you may otherwise face low energy levels or feel bleak.
  4. Give you hope, whether you’re struggling through a life transition or are feeling anxious about change and the uncertainty of the future.
  5. Remind you that you’re not alone and others have experienced what you are going through too. It’s like finding a stranger that you have so much in common with, who can help you know what to do.

You can incorporate daily inspiration quotes into your life in a variety of different ways. You can get a tear-off calendar with quotes printed on each page (one for each day) or you can record inspiring quotes in your planner yourself. We like that option since you get to curate the quotes that truly speak to you!

The most efficient way to do this is to sit down and commit a few hours to collecting a large number of inspirational quotes; then, each week, write down the ones for that week that you want to use in your planner or calendar. This way, you can make sure the quotes will speak to what you are doing and focusing on during those days.

If you don’t use a paper planner or prefer to skim a whole batch of inspiring quotes at once, creating a Pinterest board with inspirational quotes that you love can be a simple way to get a dose of inspiration any time you’re at your computer.
