Week 4 – IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS!

Guess what today is? Monday. Yet again, we are riding the Mental Monkey Monday train to brain dead depot. Do you have the same commute, same routine and same E-mail inbox mountain? Maybe you got lucky and something different happened today – even the tiniest less ordinary moment. Did you notice it? As a firm believer in the little things, I know little things can turn into BIG THINGS! Then, big things turn into creative genius.

Now, I call this the “littles concept.” Anything from tiny toys, geek gadgets, pictures or whatever you can tangibly hold or glance at sparking a happy creative giggle moment. Always, I constantly surround myself with little things – creating magic in my mind. Also, the “littles concept” isn’t something you have to do for just yourself. In addition, YOU are a participating force by uplifting creativity in other individuals MENTAL MONKEY MONDAY MONSTER.

YOU will thank YOU for it and possibly lift another’s creativity – even for a moment.

Week 3 – SHAKE YOUR TAIL FEATHER!

Again, it is Monday…the weekends fly by so quickly! Want to make the Mental Monkey Monster go away? This week it is time to SHAKE IT OUT and add a little spring in your step! Listening and dancing to uplifting “get-psyched” music is proven to change the groggy mood monster. Whatever kind of music brings back happy memories, gets your toes a tapping and your vocals humming – do it!

Move out those Monday blues and kick-it-up with whatever floats your creativity and mental well-being. It gets you moving, creates energy and wakes you up. Over time, I created and collected many “SHAKE-IT-OUT” stories. Furthermore, I can’t ever listen to the song Brickhouse the same way again. Hearing it on the radio or in a playlist makes me giggle with delight. Creativity can arise in so many fashions, therefore, shake your tail feathers this week and don’t worry about what people think. Music is like laughter – it is utterly and creatively contagious.

Week 2 – Walk Away!

Getting back into the Monday morning swing presents enough challenges. Checking E-mails and playing catch-up from Friday, if you didn’t work over the weekend, makes for a mind sludge morning. Your creative juices may not be in the brain stream – yet. Not to mention, everyone is coming off Daylight Savings time. At your first break chance, just WALK AWAY! Monday brain overload exists, no matter what profession.

Previously, I worked with a man that would get up from his desk and pace in front of the massive window wall outlooking a courtyard. At first, I thought work stress got the best of him. Later, I asked about his pacing habits. He responded, “It helps my mind settle, process thoughts and think clearly.” Absolutely and not a doubt, he WAS RIGHT! Hence, I implemented the “WALK AWAY” concept into my daily life. At times, it represents a challenge, but is mentally worth it. Plus, you never know what you are going to find!
