By Cathy-Anne O’Brien As many of us return from a spring getaway, it’s striking how re-charged you can feel. Shaking up your routine, even for a short period of time, can go a long way in renewing your perspective on your work, firing up your motivation and bringing on a new creative energy.
But you don’t have to fly to the Caribbean and lie on a beach for a change. Little changes in daily habits can refresh your attitude. Here at BlueSky, for example, we’ve started doing team yoga classes at a nearby studio, introducing a new routine to the workday, not to mention benefitting from team building and exercise.
Similar to New Year’s resolutions or any newly adopted routine, commitment can wane, but that shouldn’t be discouraging. Inspiration can come from any new action no matter how small. A friend of mine once said that taking a new route home from work everyday changed his life. A small mindset readjustment can have a significant ripple effect.
At BlueSky, we are shaking up our routine this spring to give us a new perspective. We’ll inject new thinking into our programs, introduce new offerings and look at all our clients like we are pitching for the business for the first time. Instead of leaning on our success, we want to build on it, asking ourselves questions as if we were a new start-up company: why do we exist; what are our goals for our clients and ourselves; how can we continually add value and ensure that we keep getting better?
Amazing what a yoga class can do for you.
