Photographers talk about the “golden hour,” that special time of the day when the light is perfect for taking beautiful pictures. In the library, there’s a time like that every day, too. I like to call it “wacky hour”. It’s that time – around 3 or 4pm – when everyone kinda loses focus and gets goofy. This used to be disconcerting to me. “Why can’t I focus?” or “Man, I just wasted 30 minutes recapping last night’s episode of ‘New Girl!'” Now, I embrace it…with a dance party! A favorite around my library is George Michael’s “Faith”. Clocking in at less than 4 minutes, it’s a perfect break that let’s people let loose some of that goofy energy, laugh and then refocus. Give it a shot the next time you’re feeling your and your co-workers’ productivity waning. Limit it to one song and let different people play DJ for variety.
