It may be a Monday but your quest is just beginning. In the game universe, the beginning is the easiest part; in reality, the beginning of the week can certainly be a dragging experience. Have no fear, GameSavvy has your back!
This is the first installment of My Play Monday. You see, games can create purpose in our lives, make us feel powerful and can make the day rather epic. By adding little mechanics here and there you can turn your Monday frown upside down.
Today is August 10th, 2015. It is a Monday. It is the first day of the week and this is your mission:
Choose one challenging activity that you choose for yourself and complete it.
It doesn’t have to be work related it just has to be something that you’ve chosen to do for yourself that challenges you. When we choose hard work for ourselves or set goals to achieve we step away from working and move closer to playing.
Some examples of play:
- Take a big step in your personal hobby or project
- If you like cars spend 20 minutes working on something
- If you likes arts and crafts, take some time to design something
- If you want to get in shape then take a jog, ride a bike or even take a walk outside
- Have you ever solved a Rubik’s cube? Solve one.
So please, take some time out of your day and choose to work on something challenging that you intrinsically want to do; in other words, take some time to play.
Every Monday you can use the hashtag #MyPlayMonday to tells us (or show us) how you’re challenging yourself to get the most out of your Monday. We would love to see how you chose to play and how you started the week off motivated. Share with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
