MPOW #9 - Fhqwhgads

Last week, in the middle of the day, I felt very busy and scattered. I needed to be present again, just release my mind. I took a moment to chat to a friend, who was also feeling stressed. The conversation wasn't longer than a few minutes, but it was just what I needed. I meditated, then just punched out some jibberish on the keyboard. jdbadkjbvd;knv;ajs kfjhsgk;ahsvkjbd;kabdjsv; Wow, it felt so freeing to let go, to just air things out. Completely shut off the inhibitions on the keyboard for just a moment. What a recharge. My friend did it right back. We felt so much better.

You can use it, too. This week, in the middle of your workday, take a moment to talk some jibberish. Bang on some keys. If you keep yourself very well-defined and rigid at work, let a little meaningless play in. You may find it has some meaning for you after all. Have your very own, take-your-inner-child-to-work-day.

The Practice - Release Some Jibberish

Get to a place in your life where you are often very stressed or always neat and structured. Sit there, close your eyes and see if you can release your worries. If you can shut your door and not be heard (or if you don't care about being overheard), just speak some jibberish for a while. Then type out some nonsense on your keyboard. When you are done, you've now added some play to your busy space, charging it with a little playfulness.
