Ever have a day when you’re looking at your to-do list wondering where to start? Or you’ve been puzzling over the same wording of a policy for a week? Walk away from your desk and do something physical.
I’m not necessarily talking about donning your leotard and jazzercizing, here, though that might be an option. I’m talking about doing a little manual labor around your library. When I’m feeling bogged down, I get up and process a new library item, or pull off old community bulletin board postings. Maybe there’s a small shifting project that will take five minutes, or some new books to be put on display; go for it! You’ll be surprised how mind-clearing it is to start and finish a small project in the space of a few minutes.
