“Try Something New”
Ambiguous I know, but that’s what makes it totally doable. It can be anything from trying a new recipe to doing a skydive. The point is that trying something new, creates a new opportunity for happiness. It lets you know that every day doesn’t have to be the same. You are in control.
Last night, I found some great websites with tons of ideas for new things to try:
LifeHack.com ‘30 New Things To Do Today‘
ElephantJournal.com ’52 Fun Things To Try‘
AllanKarl.com ’35 Ideas For Something New & Different in Your Life’
I was instantly inspired! So many great ideas I couldn’t choose one. I imagined myself learning a new language, knitting a scarf, taking a spin class and baking cream buns (I may return to that one). Today was quite busy though, and all morning in the back of my mind I was thinking, ‘What new thing can I do? What new thing can I do?’
But this isn’t meant to be a chore. It’s about doing one thing (big or small) every day to make it that bit happier.
So, as pathetic as it may sound, the change I made today was trying a tuna and swiss cheese bagel instead of a ham cheese toastie.
Did It Work? The bagel itself? Not really, but, the fact I made a choice today (however small) just for my own happiness made me feel good. You can do it too.
