11 Things to do on 11/11/11

This has nothing to do with the amazing, palindromic, once-in-a-lifetime 11/11/11 date itself. This is merely a list of 11 things you can do today so that you’ll have a better day – things you’ve been thinking you should do for a long time.

  1. Back up your computer. Come on, it won’t take long (or even if it does because you’ve never backed up anything but a car, you can do lots of other things while it’s happening).
  2. Clean out your old emails. Whether you’ve got a few or thousands still lurking around the old in-box, just hunker down and do it. It won’t be any easier on 11/12/11.
  3. Call someone. Don’t text them or email them (which will make #2 easier), actually call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time.
  4. Chew your food slowly. Take this day to really enjoy your food – and let your digestion start in your mouth like it’s supposed to.
  5. Disconnect for 10 minutes (ok, 11). Just take those few minutes to yourself. You deserve it (and even if you don’t, you’ll enjoy it).
  6. Try something new. Anything – a new food, a new form of social media, a new CD…just do something to break the routine.
  7. Do that errand. You know the one – drop off the dry cleaning that’s been in your car, get those shoes resoled, whatever it is, check it off the list.
  8. Smile at someone you don’t know. Who cares if they think you’re weird. You are. And so are they.
  9. Stretch. At some point today, stand up and stretch your arms as high as they can go. It feels good. Why don’t you do that more often?
  10. Throw out a pen – the one you grab and put back in your drawer / on  your desk / in your purse because it writes intermittently at best. Ahhhh.
  11. Clean your glasses or sunglasses. You’ll see better and look better, just like that.
