“I like to do new things, so I always take on roles that I feel will keep me on my toes. I never want to pigeon myself, so I always like to surprise myself. I believe in versatility and so I would play anything as long as it was a challenge.”
— Archie Panjabi
Most of the time, we follow a typical routine. We fall into habits, that may or may not improve our daily lives, and go about our day. Routines can be good; they can keep us on track each day. Sometimes, we get bored with our current track and want to switch things up and make a change in our lives. There are a variety of ways to go about this; let’s look at a few:
Go on a trip
Leaving the house and going on a trip can be a great way to break free of your regular environment and obligations. Whether overseas, in the mountains, or on the coast, getting away for a while can give us a break from our current stressors and give us a chance to breathe and reevaluate.
Do a new activity
If taking a trip doesn’t seem feasible, try doing an activity that’s not in the normal routine. Maybe you go on a hike in a new park or see a new performance or meet with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time. Getting these opportunities can work within our needs and our schedules, we just have to get creative.
Learn something new
If we want different results, we should change our way of thinking. A great way to do this is learning something new. By learning something new, we are changing our mindset and expanding our horizons. It can be a new language, a new class, or a new art project. Make it something that you are interested in and learn more about it.
When we break free of our typical activities, we get more creative and start thinking in a way we didn’t before. This can help us break free of stressors, solve problems we are facing, or help us think of a new idea that can help change our lives and those around us. Try adding some novelty into your life every once in awhile, and see where it takes you. Alleviate the boredom, and let the adventures begin. There is a whole world out there full of adventures, waiting for you to go explore. It’s time to get started.
