We’ve all heard the quote; “ The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.” Last week I confessed that my daily routine was boring and keeping me from my desire to feel energized and creative. Therefore, I have come up with a plan to do one thing different or differently each day.
I will blog each day about my experience. I encourage you to follow along with me. You can do what I do, or come up with your own ideas to shake up your February. I would so totally love to hear about your experiences!
Here is The Plan, one different thing/day, starting February 1st:
1st) Get up 10 minutes early and do nothing.
2nd) Make conversation with a stranger.
3rd) Eat lunch for breakfast, supper for lunch and breakfast for supper.
4th) Drive to a different neighbourhood for walk/run.
