In this article we look at 7 ways to add excitement to life.
Every year on the 1st of January, millions of people around the globe use a special word.
The word is big in meaning, small in size, and severely under-appreciated.
That word is ‘new’. We say “Happy New Year,” and we declare our “new” goals for the year.
However, somewhere along the line, the meaning of “new” gets lost in translation. When you’re ready to embark on a quest to find the new, here are some “new” things to try.
Add Excitement to Life - by Blogging
You may think writing is not your cuppa tea, but everyone has a story to tell.
In your spare time, try out a blog to document what’s going on in your life.
You can make it specific to your interests or your career, or you could keep it wide open for whatever thoughts dance through your mind.
There’s no need to publish your blog, of course, but there is a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that happens when you share your thoughts to the world.
Cooking gets a bad rap for being time-consuming, messy, and demanding.
We may not all be a whiz in the kitchen, but every once and a while, it’s fun to create a big meal for yourself (or your friends and family).
If you just cook to survive, it becomes menial in nature. However, if you treat it like an art form it can be very rewarding.
Add Excitement to Life - by Learning To Dance
It’s always a good idea to get your body moving when you can, and it’s an even better idea to move your body to music!
When you’re itching to do something new, try out a new form of dance. It’s creative and active at the same time – win-win!
The best part about having your own garden is eating the food. Pair that with your cooking endeavour, and you’re set!
The only caveat with gardening is that you have to have enough space for one. But if you do, it’s well worth it to start growing your own fruits, veggies, and herbs.
Not only that, but you become more self-sufficient - a skill that will be useful in times of hardship.
Add Excitement to Life - by Hiking and Walking
Depending on where you live, mountains may be fully accessible to you. If that’s the case, you should take advantage of it by going on hikes regularly.
It gets your blood pumping and gives you all kinds of beautiful sights to see. Personally I go walking every day.
Where I live there are both hills and beaches. Try and find a couple of hours each day and you will be richly rewarded.
Learn a New Language
Spare time should never become wasted time. You know that language you were always dying to learn?
Seize this extra time as the perfect opportunity to start practicing. You’ll be a linguist before you know it!
Add Excitement to Life - Meditation
At first glance, meditation may seem like the opposite of exciting. It’s calm, soothing, and super quiet.
But that doesn’t mean it can’t be exciting, too! Meditation is an art and a historically backed practice.
Try it out for five minutes a day and see how you like it.
These are just a few things that you can do to spice up your life. But don't be limited to these 7 things.
Use your imagination and your intuition and I'm sure you'll find many other ways to spice up your life.
