Your Life Interesting
How to Make Your Life Interesting
Sometimes it's just time for a change. Our routines get boring, our habits get boring, and our lives seem to get boring. The good news? You can start changing that right now. Just remember this one thing: the only person who has to think your life is interesting is you. It doesn't matter what you do so long as it works. Are you ready to step up your game?
Get a new hobby. There are hundreds of different things you can do with any size of budget. If you're low on cash, it's as simple as getting a pencil and piece of paper and learning to draw things. For absolutely no money down and no money ever, you can start going for walks in the countryside or along the river, or even start teaching yourself HTML or CSS. If you're willing to dive into your wallet, try dance classes, an instrument, or find a way to up your adrenaline. Other ideas are scuba diving, swimming, yoga, cooking, archery, or biking – and that's just the tip of the iceberg. It might seem trivial but you can, if you wish, think up a whole lifestyle for your self, and name it. Perhaps you like ballet, being an Emo and fish keeping? Call yourself a Emo-Aquarium-keeper-rina! This can make your life seem cooler and interesting.
By keeping yourself occupied with something you enjoy, not only will you be less bored and therefore a happier person, but it'll make you a more interesting person to be around and could force you to make new friends. What's more, you'll have an awesome skill to talk about and showcase to the world.
Take a course online. If you have the internet, you can get an education. Technology is amazing and it leaves room for no excuses. There are large sites like Coursera or Khan Academy that offer you free online courses, and then there are university websites like MIT and Harvard that put up all the content from certain courses online available to everyone. Not only does it keep you busy, but it keeps your mind working while expanding your horizons. Win, win, and win.
And it's not like college where you ‘'have'' to take certain courses. You can browse through their class list and pick out 1 or 2 that would fascinate you. And if you don't keep up? There's no failing grade.
Get involved in an organization that you believe in. Have you ever met someone that dedicates their free time to individuals worse off than they are? Odds are it hasn't been often and if you have, you've been in awe of them. Why can't this person be you? Whether it means volunteering at a hospital, an old folk's home, or just giving dogs at the Humane Society walks, you and the world will be better for it.
Doing acts of kindness will help you feel better about yourself and what you have going on for you, too. In addition to that, you'll be surrounded by like-minded, interesting people who also want to better the world.
Get active in non-traditional ways. Being a runner is great. Going to the gym on the regular is wonderful. But what if your form of exercise was rock climbing or pole dancing or cross-country backpacking? It's good for your body, your soul, and it makes you pretty cool. What's not to like?
This is a great way to get fit and to meet people. Join an adventure organization or a rock climbing team. Not feeling that crazy? How about your local intramural slamball team or a horseback riding club? There are many groups out there that are just for fun and don't require a vast amount of skill.
Do something you'd never dream of doing. We all tend to put ourselves into little boxes. We think we would like this, we think we should act like that – but it really doesn't do us any good. Take a minute to think of something you'd never do and then put your mind to doing it. Would you never go skinny dipping? Do it. Never hold a spider? Do it. Even you can surprise yourself.
It doesn't have to be something scary – it could even be going to a country music concert if that's something you'd never do. It's about getting out of your comfort zone and becoming a more dynamic person. And this way you can know if you ‘'actually'' like it or not.
Get off your computer. Well, after this article. Then vow to yourself that you'll limit your time spent on Facebook, Twitter, and every other site that isn't making your life any better. Think of all the hours you've wasted mindlessly scrolling down a page when you could be crafting something, talking to a family member, or helping out a friend? Being on your computer could be keeping your life from being more interesting and from being a better, more well-rounded person.
Don't go cold turkey – we all still need our fix. Start just by limiting yourself. Once you've spent 30 minutes or an hour a day on the sites you frequent, cut yourself off. Change to reading a book, or learning that skill you've been trying to cultivate. You don't have to give it up entirely. Keep a diary if you like and log how much time you are having an interesting life versus how much time you spend not doing so. It may surprise you how interesting your life. ..
