Are you tired of following the same schedule day after day: doing the same chores, driving the same route and doing the same work at the office? Are you bored of leading a monotonous life? Are you reminded of ‘Groundhog Day’ movie?
Here is a simple solution to spice up your day: Think new.
When my days seem like a boring routine, I deliberately try to change my way of thinking and get a different perspective.
Yesterday, when I saw the weird writing prompt “Two plus two equals four: Yes or No?”, I wanted to think about all situations when the answer is ‘No’. Here are few of them:
- When I asked my 5-year-old daughter, what is 2+2, she said it’s twenty-two!
- There are 2 mothers and 2 daughters in my house. It doesn’t mean 4 people. There are only 3 people at my home. It’s my mom, me, and my daughter!
- Yesterday was Father’s day. Many museums and parks advertised “Dads FREE with paid child admission.” If it is a family of 4, then, they would have paid for 3, not 4 since there was a free admission for dad.
- 2 cups of milk + 2 spoons of sugar are not going to give me 4 cups of sweetened milk.
The above example is trivial, but it just shows us the extent with which we can approach the same old question.
Try something new or do the same work in a new way. I bet, you are going to feel lively!
For now, I’m going to try a new recipe for my breakfast. 🙂
