Your words matter, as does having fun at work. You cannot be a genius like Einstein was if you take yourself too seriously. An easy game to have fun with words, raise your energy and creativity level is the acrostic. You create an acrostic by writing a word vertically and then choosing a word that begins with each letter of your original word. It’s a way to get outside your box for a few minutes. Choose words that evoke positive emotions, feelings, actions, and reactions and you will raise your energy level and be more creative.
If you’ve never made an acrostic before, see the example below. It’s something much easier to grasp by looking at, not by explaining. You can make one with your name, the name of a loved one, or any word on which you want to focus these days.
To help you raise your personal energy level, you can access the word bank of high-energy words below the Mixonian acrostic. These words are scientifically proven to raise your level of energy; they’re from a list in Power Vs. Force, by David Hawkins, MD, PhD.
This is what an acrostic looks like. You can make one with your name, or with any word.It’s a fun creativity break.
