Shake up the mundane

Sometimes I find myself on autopilot, allowing my mind to navigate through familiar patterns and routines with minimal conscious effort, and that's ok, even necessary for the sake of mental ease and efficiency. But, it becomes a issue when this habit morphs into an endless cycle of monotony, creating a continuous loop.
Here are some ideas that we at Wicked Gummy co. use to shake it up, even if its just a little;

  1. Change your route: If you walk, bike or drive to work or to run errands, try taking a different route. This will expose you to new surroundings and may spark some new ideas.

  2. Try a new type of cuisine: Instead of sticking to your regular food routine, try something new. Go out to eat at a restaurant that offers a type of cuisine you’ve never tried before, or look up a recipe online and cook a new dish at home.

  3. Switch up your exercise routine: If you typically stick to the same type of exercise, try something different. Sign up for a new class at the gym, go for a swim, or take a yoga class.

  4. Read a book outside your usual genre: If you typically stick to a certain genre of books, try reading something different. This can expand your horizons and expose you to new ideas and perspectives.

  5. Take a new class: Sign up for a class in something you’ve always been interested in, but have never tried. This can be anything from a cooking class to a language course.

  6. Listen to new music: Expand your musical horizons by listening to new artists or genres of music that you’ve never listened to before.

  7. Meet new people: Attend a social event or join a group or club that is focused on a hobby or interest that you enjoy. This can be a great way to meet new people and expose yourself to different viewpoints and experiences.
