Do you ever feel like you need a change of scenery, a change of pace?
Do you ever just want to avoid the computer for days?
Do you ever find it so difficult to get motivated to create that you take drastic measures to change your routine, change everything, to start over?
Monday, I just couldn't find music that inspired me. I couldn't find the inspiration to write, I couldn't create, I didn't even want to do my normal computer routine.
I knew I needed to change my routine. So today's Walking on Wednesday is about changing things up a bit. I thought changing up the music, and posting today, would be a good way to start today.
Find new music - here is a different music experience, Symphonic Pink Floyd.
Numb yourself to your normal sounds, routines, experiences.
Find new sights.

So I began this week avoiding the computer, creating, writing. On my walk this morning (yes, I have been getting walks in regularly!), I felt that my internal computer was re-booting. I found that motivation that had been lost. I felt that I thrived on changing my routine. I saw new sites exploring new areas in our town and surrounding towns. I limited time on the computer, increased time with the family. I broke the mold I had been so comfortable in.
This time, that break really worked for me. And I hope to keep this new perspective by continuing to break up the regular course of procedure.
Do you need to re-boot regularly?
Or do you thrive on the same routine?
