"The best cure for a sluggish mind is to disturb its routine."
~William H. Danforth
I'm on vacation for the next two weeks--changing my routine. Instead of grey skies and cold weather, I'm in the sun. Instead of moving forward to get things done, I'm relaxing, reading some good books and enjoying new adventures with friends. Getting out of your routine, whether it is taking a vacation or just doing something a little different, can get us out of our rut. We can often begin to think more creatively when we are outside of our normal routine.
This week: Find a way to break your winter doldrums by disturbing your routine. It might just be driving home from work a different way. It might be stopping to talk with someone you don't usually take the time to connect with. It might be going to a different restaurant, or ordering something completely different than you usually do. Explore small ways to change your routine.
