This photographer who waits for visitors to match the museum art! Totally charming and fun. Two more of my favorites:
This idea is based on the simple premise that I do better work when I feel good. I am in the midst of a couple of projects that are not naturally fun (think: challenging, a bit emotionally heavy, and a big mental lift). I can’t nix the projects entirely, but I want to feel as good as I can while I work my way through them. So each time before I begin, I try to ask one of these incredibly simple but effective questions: What is the most fun way I can do this? What would this look like if it were easy? For me that can include:
- Relocating (taking the project somewhere new and/or beautiful, like a favorite café);
- Adding some ambiance (making a cup of tea or cocoa, turning on fun pump-up music, wearing something tactile and cozy);
- Changing the project structure (starting a timer and working for 3 sets of 25 minutes with a 5 minute stretch or dance break in between!).
This is great to use while paying bills or doing anything that feels a bit “ugh.” Enjoy!
A note to give credit where credit is due: “What is the most fun way I can think of doing this right now?” comes from Jess Lively’s Flow With Intention online class. A new—and final—round of the class starts on Feb. 5th and I recommend it highly.
Tata Harper's Rejuvenating Serum. Holy moly. It's spendy (luxury natural skin care), but I got hooked after trying a sample and, during a particularly difficult and sleep-deprived period, someone actually complimented me on my skin! I laughed and thought, oh no, now I really need to buy this stuff.
Two quick funnies from Instagram. First: a perfect vacation!
And second: so mortifying!
