Long ass bike rides (bicycles or motorcycles). I go and zone for a few hours, and I'm ready to hop back into whatever I was working on.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen for inspiration on how good your life is.
i use meetup from time to time to seek out spaces i've never been before. for instance a few weeks ago i went to a crypto event (know nothing about blockchain and it was a great introduction to what people are doing). got to flex my witty skills with strangers and meet some lovely people.
sometimes i'll go to readings around town, live podcast shows (get tixx for the Moth, or Two Dope Queens) or spaces where i can truly engage with others (literally forcing myself out of my shell - sans alcohol)
If you really want to be inspired, you have to immerse yourself in a completely different creative field.
Architecture, interior design, fashion photography, cinematography, stage and lighting design for events/concert, 3D animation.
the Chick of the Day thread is quite inspiring, have you guys ever clicked on it??
