Try doing the opposite of what restaurants traditionally do.
Example: Use no menu.
Take a shower.
Relax. Let your mind wander.
When you are showering alone, you're in
a personal space, free from negative
feedback, quizzical stares, and other
Showering is a relaxing and
stress free experience. That
helps set your mind free.
As we scrub under the shower, our minds
revert to a sort of neutral state in which
we are receptive to issues or themes
that bother us or that are unresolved.
Whenever you’re deeply involved with a problem, take a
thought walk, for example around your neighbourhood,
a shopping mall, a park, the woods etc.
Look for objects, situations, or events that are
interesting or that can be metaphorically compared with
whatever you are working on.
