You ever eat a meal so terribly ordinary that it just needed “something?” Salt, pepper, garlic… anything? Makes a big difference doesn’t it? Just a little spice can make all the difference in the world.
It’s the same way with your life.
You know that saying “variety is the spice of life?” It’s very true. If you do the same things day in and day out, no matter how satisfying they were in the beginning, they will start to lose their luster and seem very boring after a while.
It doesn’t have to be too much variety to make a big change… just like any spice, a little dab will do ya!
Just stop doing something old and tired
If something just doesn’t “do it” for you anymore, you can always just stop doing it. That will leave you room and time to try something else.
Add something new
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never tried… just go ahead and do it. Set a date; make a commitment… make it happen.
Do something old in a new way
OK, so maybe something new is too much to do, for whatever reason. Instead try doing it differently. Just as an example, how about walking around your neighborhood, instead of driving through it so quickly… or take a different way home from work.
Try it someone else’s way
You know, there are people out there that do the same things you do, only they do it differently. Get together with them and do it the way do. It will bring about a perspective you didn’t notice when you did it your way the whole time.
Do something “out of character”
Really shake things up by doing something no one would think you would do. Whether it’s skydiving or just wearing brighter colors than usual, the reaction you get from people might just be fun enough to inspire you to do more.
Remember, doing everything the same way will not get different results. Spice it up and turn your ordinary life into a feast!!
