Shake Things Up

Have you taken your daily vitamin and then not remembered if you did or not? Brushed your teeth and then done it again? Driving around, do you have to stop and think about where you are and how you got there?

We all tend to zone out when it comes to doing our routine tasks, but what's the fun in that? To stay more alert to what you are doing in each moment, try some of the following tips:
  • Put your pants on with the left leg first.
  • Park in different spots so you have to pay attention to where your car is.
  • Make a new recipe for dinner.
  • Switch the contents of your drawers: Put your socks where your undergarments are and vice versa.
  • Read a book about a subject you haven't been interested in before.
  • Take a walk in a different location.
Shake things up a little. No more auto pilot!


  1. Wearing my sweat pants backwards today, which maybe in retrospect, is not such a good way to 'shake things up'!

  2. Hey, whatever it takes to give a new perspective. It's all good!
