Wednesdays can be a drag sometimes. It’s the middle of the week, energy is low, and you’re looking at the calendar for Friday. Sometimes motivation and inspiration to get the job done is lacking. Here are some tips that I’ve found to help me get through this mid-week rut.
29 Ways to Stay Creative
This video has simple things that I can do that don’t take very long. This helps keep my mind fresh and the creative energy flowing.
Doing things the same way everyday can be boring. “Let’s kick it up a notch!” as Emeril Lagasse would say. Drive a different way to and from work (but still make it on time). Brown bag if you eat out often. Wear a color of clothing you haven’t worn before. Change helps you see things in a different perspective and stimulates the mind.
I can eat Chipotle any day and twice on Sunday, but I don’t. But when I do I feel great! There must be some secret ingredient in it that keeps me going. I have to figure it out.
Go to the park/walk around
If it’s nice outside take a walk. If it’s not nice outside take a walk, just for a little bit. It’s good to get out of your comfort zone once in a while.
(Attempt to) Cook/make something at home
I admit that I’m not a big cooker, but there are times where I brew in the kitchen. I work with what I have (I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups) and I think I do pretty well if I do say so myself.
I’m a big fan of zombie movies and video games. I think they’re hilarious. I enjoy a funny zombie flick or playing Left 4 Dead 2 online once in a while. There’s just something about seeing the living dead getting blown up. Ha, “living dead” – how ironic is that.
The biggest thing when you’re in a rut is to change – change something in your life. It doesn’t have to be a big change. Those usually don’t go well. And think to yourself, “Friday is almost here!” and you’ll be fine.
