We keep telling ourselves “So much to do, so little time” but is that really true? There’s only so much one can accomplish before feeling drained or dejected by the possibility of another busy day. Living in a huge city such as London or New York may mean infinite possibilities as cool things are only few stops away but without careful planning a day can be over before it’s even begun. This is why we’ve put together a handy list of things to do next time you’re feeling restless.
The British Library
Right next to Kings Cross station we have the jaw dropping British Library. As you enter the building you may be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the wall of books on display. It really puts the wealth of human knowledge into perspective while giving you a little motivational punch. Next time you’re struggling to complete that essay come here and try to imagine the millions of hours of hard work that were dedicated by students and academics to make it all possible.
Might sound geeky but a library is a great place to go if you need to be productive. There’s little to distract you while the quiet atmosphere ensures you keep your head down. Motivation and creativity tend to come in bursts so make sure you’re in the right environment to take advantage of this.
Stanley Kubrick Exhibition
Expand your mind by visiting a gallery, exhibition or open space. A well designed exhibition will allow you to step inside the mind of the curator and hopefully learn more about the subject at hand. On this occasion Krissy from Interlaced and I went to the ‘Dreaming Kubrick’ exhibition which was curated by Mo’Wax and UNKLE founder, artist and musician James Lavelle.
The exhibition featured a host of contemporary artists, film makers and musicians showcasing works inspired by Stanley Kubrick. Even though he passed away over 15 years ago it’s amazing to see the influence his films have had on so many aspects of our daily lives. If you’re sitting there right now thinking about a new film to watch then ‘Dr Strangelove’ gets my vote. Seriously, give it a watch. You won’t regret it.
Home Sweet Home
They say “home is where the wifi is” and sometimes there’s nothing better than putting your feet up after a long day at work, grabbing a glass of red, playing some online bingo on trustworthy sites like Luckypantsbingo.com or watching your favourite series.
Cleaning your home has also been proven to reduce stress so the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed put on your favourite album and minimise. You’ll be surprised how little stuff you actually use day to day.
