The Cure for Ruts is Curiosity
One of the cures for boredom or “ruts” is CURIOSITY and EXPLORING.
And… it doesn’t have to be big huge ginormous activities or new adventures…
– Taking a new route
– Trying a new recipe
– Doing a different workout
– Walking through a new neighborhood
– Conversing with a new friend
– Helping someone
– Dancing in your living room
– Learning a new skill
Yesterday was day 8 of my 30 day expansion challenge. My husband and I ventured to Coronado and explored.
20 years ago when Brooks was serving in the US Navy he lived there. It was a much smaller island town then as he explained…
He showed me the 420 square foot home he lived in.
We walked the trails he used to run on.
We drove around the base he did Navy Seals training at.
We had the most amazing Mexican food for lunch at Miguel’s Cocina.
We had the BEST gelato at the Del Coronado.
We sat at chatted on the rocks and took in all the views.
SUCH AN EPIC DAY.
And once again my question to myself was “WHY had I only been here so few times before?! It’s only 30 minutes from where I live.”
We all stay so routine.
We walk the same walks, drive the same routes, wake up at the same time, eat the same foods, and have the same conversations. And then we wonder where our creativity goes and our boredom kicks in.
That’s not how we EXPAND
Today is day 9 and so much is unfolding for me….
