You know how sometimes you’re down in the dumps or just tired of the same ole’ rigmarole day in, day out? Do you feel like a robot having the same consistent routine? Let’s change things up a little, shall we? These are simple, quick (or most are) and sure-fire ways of getting you out of your funk. At least, they help me. I hope they help you, too.
Doing just one thing differently in your day can make all the difference you need to perk yourself up. Whether it’s a task you normally have to do and you just do it a little differently with the intention of having fun with it, or it’s a new task altogether — it can make a huge difference in how you feel about your day, how you feel about yourself, and/or shift the energy flow to improve your level of funk/depression/boredom.
So, yesterday, I set up a new piece of office equipment for my home office that I received at Christmas. Yes, it had been sitting there in the box, collecting dust for nearly a month and I finally made the time to set that sucker up, connected my new printer/scanner/copier to my laptop and my cell phone WiFi, baby! Yea! One less thing to worry about, plus it makes our lives easier if we want to print something from our laptops in another room or our cell phones from another city/state. And yes, it stressed me in the beginning, but now that it’s figured out and done, I’m oh so happy.
Another thing I did was put my hair in a little up-do. I work from home, so I usually just wear my hair down or flick it back in a pony tail. The updo made me feel kind o’ sassy! And maybe even just a little sexy. ;) Now, this may not work for the guys out there unless, of course, your hair is long enough for this, but I can’t really recommend the up-do, in this case. I just can’t.
The deal is, you need to find something, if it’s just one thing in your day, to do in a different way, to bring a smile to your face, or attempt to.
Something everyone can do no matter the length of your hair: sing at the top of your lungs to a great sounding, fun, dancy song. Sing off key on purpose just to make yourself laugh. ’cause laughter truly is the best medicine!
Let me know how it goes? Let me know what you did differently yesterday or today. Lata! ;)
