Often when we do something new, we wonder why we don’t try fresh experiences more often. Due to the pressures of work, we can merely exist and forget to live and enjoy life. Each day is precious and can be made special in some way. This guide aims to inspire you to try something new every day.
Talk to someone new
The easiest way to make every day an experience is by striking up a conversation with someone you’ve never spoken to before. This could be a stranger at a bus stop or a colleague at work.
Everyone has a story to tell and something interesting to say. You might learn a fact, feel a fresh emotion or simply pass a few minutes of the day in an original way. Who knows, the person you chat with might become your future spouse or your best friend!
Learn a skill
Have you always wanted to learn French? How about a hankering to play the saxophone? Do you have the desire to use a sewing machine? Learning a new skill is a great way to broaden your horizons.
Whether it’s useful or just for enjoyment, you will feel a sense of achievement when you focus on a fresh challenge. You might even love it so much you decide to make it your career. The first step is simply to start.
Taste different food
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to food. We all have our favourite meals and trying a different dish can seem risky. There’s so much on offer, though, it’s a shame not to try it!
You could easily pick up a snack at the supermarket, like an unusual fruit or a yoghurt you’ve never tasted before. If you’re feeling brave, you could try a whole new cuisine. You won’t know if you like it until you try, and you might just stumble across your new favourite meal.
Take a walk with your camera
When we go about our daily lives, we can easily forget to stop and look around ourselves at our environment. The world is full of surprises and beauty, if only we take the time to observe it!
By going for a walk with a camera, you will be more alert to what is happening. You will be in the moment and concentrate your attention on being in the present. You might end up with some stunning photographs to brighten up your home or office!
Experience a new sport
Sport has the dual benefit of being fun and improving fitness. From fencing and fishing to running and rowing, experiencing a different sport could give you a new hobby plus a bigger social circle.
Once you’ve got the bug for new experiences, you could treat a loved one to experience gifts like driving days, cookery classes or zorbing . There’s nothing like throwing yourself down a hill in a giant rubber ball to blast away the cobwebs!
