Thanks to all of you who sent in these ideas. I call them "joy breaks"... something that pulls you away from your desk and back into a more creative frame of mind.
15 min. walk in the middle of the afternoon
Call a friend just to say ‘hi’
Pop into an office and share a story (not a b*tch session... a story)
Gelato or coffee run
Read 3 pages of a book or 10 of a magazine
Sit with your back to your computer for 10 min.
Plan how to spend $10,000
Google “chocolate” and read 3 entries on the 10th page of results
Ask your mentors and mentorees what they do to refresh mind and spirit when 15 min. is all they have.
