By getting out of the office and doing a physical activity you can reset your mindset and your thinking
To go forward, sometimes you need to take a step or two off your path for a little while.
So, I decided to shoot this week’s video in my backyard instead of the studio to illustrate this week’s topic.
Springtime is finally rearing its head and I thought the team should get out of the office and do some mental ‘spring cleaning’. So I messaged them last night, told them to meet at my house and wear some old clothes and be prepared to do something different.
They had no idea what I had in store.
We are working on a little construction project in my back yard and not only does this help me (he he), but it helps us as a team by getting away from our desks and the routine of the office.
When you do physical work with your hands, it uses a different part of your brain. It takes the mental pressure off and makes you use different forms of thinking and problem solving than you typically do in the office.

And it was just what we needed, when we returned to the office the following day we all felt revamped and ready to dive in, and I want you to do the same with your team.
Now, that most of the country is warming up, try having your morning huddle outside, or take your whole team to a picnic lunch in the park. By simply resetting your location, it breaks up your routine and jump starts your brain. Plus, getting some fresh air and vitamin D is beneficial too.
Have an office spring cleaning day at the office and clear out some of the clutter that has built up over the last year. When you clear out the physical clutter in your life, it also de-clutters your brain as well. Helping you breathe easier and think more clearly.
In this video, you’ll learn about:
- The value of physical work
