Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

00:00:45
Good morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to change something that you've stopped seeing so much in life becomes background scenery after a while noticing and making a change can have a big impact on your happiness.

00:01:06
A few years ago a business leader who was about to be interviewed on camera in his office asked me for some advice aside from smiling and wearing solid colors my biggest tip take a look around and notice any piles of paper or items that he had long since stopped seeing he might want to move those on camera. He'd see them with fresh eyes, and he might really cringe is so easy to stop noticing things that we see all the time. I know this is true for me. I have a very strong tendency to just make if something isn't broken. Well why bother it

00:01:46
But I've also seen in my life that making a little change could have an outsized impact for instance this spring. I finally got around to changing the background on my phone. Yes. I vaguely knew that people put photos of their kids and pets on their phones, but I had never done so then when we all began Sheltering in place, I realized just how many times I was picking up my phone per day and looking at Apple's default. So I switched the photo to a lovely one. I took of a blooming Plum Tree the Slender branches and bright pink blossoms made me smile when I first saw the photo, so I figured they do the same on my phone.

00:02:30
They became my wallpaper and now this mindless task. I do a hundred times a day, maybe more signing into my phone becomes a little moment of beauty.

00:02:42
You're probably not as bad as I am in this regard. I actually just took down an evergreen garland that had been up since Christmas Loops, but no doubt. You have things that you've stopped noticing to

00:02:56
so today take a look at your living spaces and take a look at your digital spaces with fresh eyes has that pile of magazines on your nightstand just become part of the scene like a bedside lamp. How about the items on your kitchen counter or any decorations on your car switch up the photos on your desk or mental and maybe put something inspiring as your laptop background if you're collecting knick-knack somewhere pause and see if the collection still amuses you or not. If not put something else there. It only takes a little bit of time.

00:03:37
My new phone background took about 10 seconds and it gives me a few seconds of joy every time I see it very few things in life have that kind of payoff we may as well take advantage of the ones that do.

00:03:54
