With the dark days of winter ahead for all of us, here’s a way to beat the boredom. Try doing the things that you normally do but in a different way. For example:
Eat popcorn with chopsticks.
Drink water in a champagne glass, a shipping envelope, or lapping it out of a bowl like a dog.
Write and draw with your “other” hand.
Watch a video with finger goggles.
Do a random walk: at each intersection, flip a coin to decide whether to go left or right.
Eat a slice of pizza in different ways: fold it over, eat the crust first, eat from the sides, make pizza into different shapes.
Bet you can think of a slew of other things to try. If you come up with really great ideas, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll pass them along to everyone.
By the way, a study done at Ohio State University shows that these novel ways of doing things are most enjoyable the first time.
