Those who study the brain including the Mayo Clinic physician Amit Sood understand the importance of trying new things.
Being open to that which is not routine for us.
This helps our brain, lifts our mood but the reason we like to keep things the same is for convenience and fear of failure.
Try a new walk, a new run, a new exercise
A different way to get to work
An entirely different lunch
Meet at least one new person every day breaking the ice first
Write your next email in a way so different it doesn’t even look like your email
Give a decision you can make to someone else
Let the waiter/waitress choose the best of the menu and even if it disappoints, it will invigorate your ability to live life in the present.
We often think of changing jobs, partners, houses or apartments and other things to break out of the monotony of daily life.
So go ahead, Give someone you don’t usual praise a sincere compliment with the evidence to back it up.
The fountain of youth is our ability to try something new.
