Today is the 31st of January and is National Backwards Day.
 It is easy for us to get stuck in a routine and do the same thing over and over again. While these repeated actions can build good habits, it can limit our perspective.
Today, we are encouraged to do things differently to freshen things up. Try and smile at someone you usually ignore or take a different route into work. Perhaps try a different cuisine for dinner this week or wear something from the back of your wardrobe. If you are studying for exams, try a different technique for one day such as reading the answer before the question (some of my students do this all the time)  
Injecting some variety into our lives allows us to see things differently and rejuvenates our souls.
