top 10 tuesdayHiya kids! Today’s post was a request from my friend, Wendy. She asked me to come up with a list of ways to get out of a rut. Here goes…

top 10 ways to get out of a rut

  1. Set realistic goals for the week and include things you wouldn’t normally do. Stick with just a few. The idea is to make them attainable, but a little challenging. (like the Building Rome project)
  2. Try a new food or beverage that you’ve always thought looked interesting but were hesitant about.
  3. Cook a totally new recipe.
  4. Do a creative project in a medium you’re not accustomed to, ie. if you always paint in oils try water color.
  5. Crayons on construction paper – need I say more?
  6. Evaluate your living space – if there’s something that annoys you or doesn’t bring you joy, do something about it. If that shelf full of random nick-knacks doesn’t make you happy, consider donating them to charity. Less is often more.
  7. Wear your most beautiful blouse and a stunning piece of jewelry to dinner at home, just because you can.
  8. If you always do date night in, go out. If you always do date night out, stay in. Change up your routine.
  9. Do one thing every day purely because it makes YOU happy. Fuck everyone else for 10 minutes.
  10. Listen to all of that great music that you have stashed on your iPod/phone/whatever that you’ve forgotten about. Listen while you’re cooking dinner or cleaning house or reading blogs or whatever. Music motivates.

I don’t know if this was what you had in mind, Wen, but I hope it helps. Love ya, honey. ❤
