1. Train Your Brain Day

I’m sure some of you have forgotten that tomorrow,
October 13th, is officially Train Your Brain Day.
This is a great reminder that humor and laughter
are the perfect catalysts for creative thinking.
Humor helps us reframe situations and activates both sides
of our brains. And when people laugh, they tend to move
from convergent thinking to divergent thinking, wherein
they see that there might be more than one solution to
a problem.

Humor is also a great brain trainer because it has been
shown to keep our brains fine-tuned and healthy!

Here’s a Train Your Brain humor exercise for tomorrow:
Create an offbeat list of the “Top Five Reasons I Love
Monday Mornings.” (If you are motivated enough to
do this, then I’ll award a free deck of Humor Memory Cards
to the best entry I receive by the end of October.)

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Remember that HA + HA = AHA! If you want to get more ideas
during your next meeting, plan to inject heavy doses of
fun. Try playing charades, Pictionary, brainstorming
something goofy, or incorporating some wacky toys and props
to help people loosen up the inhibitions and fire up the
brains!

3. Quote of the Week

“If you don’t like your job, don’t strike. You just go
in every day and do it half-assed. It’s the American way.”
Homer Simpson (Note: This attitude is not endorsed by the
Hump Day head office staff.)
=========================================================
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

This makes me so sad: British ice cream maker Wall’s
has stopped printing jokes on their ice cream buckets
because too many customers couldn’t get the jokes!
(Perhaps they should consider changing customers?)
