Embrace Your Spirit Animal

Today's Magic: Embrace Your Spirit Animal
Pick an animal that best represents who you are. Spend at least 30 minutes imagining life as that animal. Where would you go and what would you do without your cumbersome human responsibilities? Get lost in a dream-land where you exist as that animal, or grasp some of the experience by writing it down or creating a piece of art.

Design a Uniform

Today's Magic:  Design a Uniform
Design an outfit you could wear everyday for a year. Consider functionality and the year-round climate in your area. Bonus points if you can design a "modular" outfit that can be rearranged to create new styles with the same pieces (Think: The AA Circle Scarf ). To see a great example of a lovely lady who is putting this idea into action, check out The Uniform Project.

Make a Speech

Today's Magic: Make a Speech!
Find a topic that you feel very strongly about. It can be anything from pink frosting on donuts to animal welfare. Write a long, and thorough speech detailing facts, concerns, solutions or ideas. Record it via webcam and broadcast it online.  Say exactly what you want to say and don't worry about what people will think. It is amazingly empowering to get your voice out there, even if you are just addressing YouTube.

Make a Gourmet Meal

Today's Magic: Make a Gourmet Meal
Pick out recipes for a three course meal. Make sure they are super complicated and at least half of the directions sound like Swahili to you. Spend the whole entire day searching for ingredients and putting together your culinary masterpiece. Serve it to yourself and someone else just as awesome.

Write A Letter To Your Future Self

Today's Magic: Write a letter to your future self.
A few days ago I got an email from myself in 2005. Weird. But strangely exciting and motivational. Right now i'm so much different from the person who wrote that email. Use FutureMe to write a letter that automatically gets sent to you sometime in the future. Write details of your current life, and what your goals are. Tell a story. Describe what you are wearing. Remind yourself to buy milk.

Dance Party!

Today's Magic: Have a dance party.
You don't need a fancy club and tons of strangers to have a dance party! Turn up Tik Tok, throw on your shiny gold leggings and break it down in your living room. Dance with your dog, your bestie, or yourself. Feeling more adventurous? Take your dance party to an empty parking lot, department store, or other random public place. Added bonus: hold a dance off. Invite strangers and friends alike to participate. Cuz you know, everyone likes to dance!

Be Someone Else For A Day

Tired of your life?
 Today's Magic: Become a character you create
Create a character that is completely unlike yourself. Take time to formulate all of their nuances and distinctive traits. Give him/her a favorite movie and band, an extraordinary style, and a favorite food. Decide upon this person's fantasies and passions. Then, spend your entire day as this wonderful person! Act and react as this fictional character would. Spend the day doing things that only your creation would enjoy. In being someone else, you will learn new and exciting things about yourself!

Today's Magic: Make an Indoor Fort!
Take every blanket or sheet you own and create your own personal sanctuary in your house. Make multiple rooms within the fort, or secret tunnels and compartments! Hang up fun photo's, paper cutouts,or string lights inside your dwelling. It is your very own space.. make it uniquely yours! Spend the day reading, drawing, napping or eating. Take it down whenever you feel like it, or leave it up forever as your own private retreat from reality.
