Reading Time: 1 minutes (ish)
Last Friday, I began a little experiment – Batman’s big day out.
It was the start of a series of little bits of fun I will be capturing and putting up on social media, following the story of my little LEGO Batman figure.
Now, the point is I wanted to have a bit of fun on my Friday and possibly bring a little to my friends along the way. A question that came up though was
“Have you no work to do?”.
The answer was – of course I do. However, the total time take on Friday to do this was about 30 minutes. As I work with a VDU, I am meant to have a break every hour. If I smoked, it would be acceptable to take 45 minutes or more a day for smoking breaks. So is 30 minutes of something that I enjoyed, kept me motivated, was creative, brought joy to others and helped increase social media traffic for me that day a bad thing? Of course not – and I am not giving myself or anyone else cancer having a Batman break!
Is it gamification? Probably not, but it is enjoyable and that can’t be a bad thing.
So, next time you are stressed – have a Batman break!
Stay tuned for more adventures.
