the fresh perspective...

Freshair Boutique

The matter of small talk. You know?

When was the last time you had a conversation with a human face? If someone was to ask you a few questions off the cuff, what would your response be? What would you say? What would you ask? When was the last time you had a conversation for the purpose of purely conversing? It is very important that we take the time to talk and to discover new things about each other.

In an time when speaking face to face is almost foreign, let us give ‘small talk’ some serious dap! It’s a great way to pass the time and you might learn a thing or two. Here are a few questions that might make your next human contact meeting quite interesting.

What’s the most unbelievable thing that’s ever happened to you?

Are you reading any good books right now? I’d love some recommendations. How about shows?

Are there any apps on your phone that you can’t live without?

If you could only watch one genre of movies for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Do you have any podcast suggestions for my drive?

Oh, and just because talking is great, let’s not forget about her good friend listening. It makes for a neccessary part of the art of conversation. ;)

That’s the fresh perspective…

How To: Stop The Monday Blues

Freshair Boutique

one. Identify the problem.

Is there a lingering thought in your mind that seems overwhelming as you begin each week? Whether it's an unfinished project, an unfinished conversation or a work related issue. Take some time to get to the bottom of this to ease that anxious feeling at the beginning of each week.

two. Get enough sleep.

Sometimes weekends can seem busier than your week. This is a recipe for disaster for the upcoming week. Make sure you get enough sleep on the weekend as they really are there to help you recharge.

three. Be positive.

If you go into a week with a bad attitude, you're going to have a bad week. Or, at least a bad start to your week. Monday is just another day and will be over before you know it! If you go into the day ready for action, the chances of it flying by will be much more likely.

four. Make someone else happy.

The feeling of bringing joy to someone, making them smile, may be just what you need to snap you out of your Monday funk. Bring a co-worker their favourite coffee, tell a friend how much you love them, or make your [family, spouse, partner, kids] their favourite dinner. Even the smallest gestures make a difference and will make you feel happier while making someone else smile.

five. Dress like a pro.

If you go into Monday with a drab outfit you may not be able to help but feel a little sluggish. Try spicing up your wardrobe and wearing some bright fun colours, or adding a bright tuque. This is an easy way to put a little pep in your step.

six. Turn up the tunes!

Monday's are allowed to feel like a party. Get that speaker on and rock out while you get ready or while you drive to work. Seriously, this works.

seven. surround yourself with positive people.

- It really makes a difference who you surround yourself with. Always feel like so and so is putting a damper on everything, regardless of the topic? Maybe spend less time socializing with that person, or, check in with them to see if everything is okay. It's draining to complain or be around a complainer. If it were me, I'd prefer to know I was doing it so I could snap out of it!
