Combatting Foggy Brain

Here’s an oldie but goodie from the Creating Passionate Users blog (one of my favorite, and sadly extinct blogs). I am resurrecting it because I believe it explains the case of ‘foggy brain’ I can’t seem to shake at my current gig (in a big, beige cube in a big, beige building at a big, beige bank):

“You always knew that dull, boring cubicles could suck the joy out of work, but now there’s evidence that they can change your brain. Not mentally or emotionally, no, we’re talking physical structural changes. You could almost say, “Dull, lifeless work environments cause brain damage…

Apparently all work and no play makes Jack not just dull, but dumber. So don’t forget to have fun…”

I am taking this to mean a trip to the new Whole Foods across the street is in immediate order – can’t argue with science! Unless of course, you’re the Bush Administration.

And yes, I think grocery shopping is fun – especially when the store has a wine tasting station and encourages you to drink while you shop – now that’s good user experience!
