It’s Monday, so that means it’s back to work or school for many of us.

Although routine makes us feel secure, a little change of pace can instantly shake things up, build excitement, and improve your outlook for the rest of the week.

Today, we challenge you to alter your drive into work today, or if you’re working from home, work in a different room if possible, take a different route on your afternoon walk, hang a new picture in your home or office, or plan a midday picnic with friends.

Give yourself something new and different to look forward to.
