When it comes to small business, there’s no one recipe for success. And while that might be the case, there are still some things you can do that will give you that competitive edge.
Here are 5 things that Wixies swear by.
If you sit at a desk all day, you’re going to want to get the most out of your morning before you get to sitting. We’re big supporters of the *Lorper Method which says that instead of walking around your house, you should crawl. Reverting back to your infant form of mobility not only helps you to connect with your inner child, it also engages muscles you didn’t even know you still had. Plus, it turns everyday tasks like making breakfast and brushing your teeth from boring, to challenging!
While we all love us a good cup of joe, the caffeine buzz is hardly worth the crash that comes after. That’s why we opt for high-protein, flavor-packed and super filling **chicken broth. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can go with a flavor imitation brand, but we’re big fans of the old salty original. No lag, no crash, just good [solid when cold] chicken broth.
Choosing your outfit can be a stressful task. Too many options, too few, trying to find color coordinating items, what’s in and what’s out – who needs it? It’s a time-consuming chore that our simple solution does away with in minutes. Here’s how: first, blindfold yourself (it doesn’t have to be a traditional blindfold, anything that blocks your vision will do). Next, pick a few items from within your drawers and/or closet. Once you have a small pile, remove your blindfold and then put on enough pieces to cover your body (if you don’t happen to grab pants or a skirt, put the blindfold on again and go fish once more). This may seem a bit off the beaten path, but it’s really a daily excercise for your instincts. Plus, you just may start to be the trend-setter in your office.
Days in the workplace can be hectic and noisy, and there’s no mute button. Incorporating some zen into your morning before you get to the office can make all the difference. That’s why Wixies take a ***morning vow of silence that lasts up until they walk through their office door – goodbye awkward conversation in the elevator, and hello sweet silence. If you live with roommates or a family, it’s important that they also adopt this morning routine, as the slightest sound can disrupt the delicate zen balance and make all your effort for naught. The Lorper Method helps in this area too, as you’re less likely to stub your toe and scream.
Happy April Fool’s Day, every one.
*This is not a real thing (that we know of)
**We do not condone drinking chicken broth every morning (ouch! my arteries!)
***This also isn’t a real thing, but we’re considering making it an office policy (at least until 11AM)
