Our brains are wired for efficiency.
That’s why when we do the same thing over and over again, we develop a sort of “active blindness”.
Stepping away from the normal routine – or pausing – from time to time allows us to be more aware.
To see the same picture with a new set of eyes.
Allowing us to re-enter our routine and do the regular things in a new way.
We may not always be able to do something extravagant to “get away” from the routine. But we can always step outside and look up.
