One of my favorite ways to uplift or comfort myself is by reading short inspirational quotes. They quickly help to reframe your mindset and soothe your mind.
In this article, I’m sharing 40 short quotes for those days when you need some quick, powerful inspiration.
The power of inspirational quotes
I wrote about it in my law of attraction book, but one thing I’ll often do at night before falling asleep is read quotes. I find that they can dramatically and instantly shift your vibration.
The higher your vibration, the quicker you come into alignment with all that life is trying to give to you.
Reading inspirational quotes anytime during the day is powerful, but right before you fall asleep is the most potent time. This is when your brainwaves are slowing down and you have less resistance up.
Really feel the quotes. Drift off to sleep letting your last thoughts be on the magic of life and this reality, and watch the things that begin to happen in your life.
