Try Something New
There's no shame in being a little lazy sometimes. Everyone deserves the chance to lay on the couch in their pajamas all day watching their favorite movie for the 700th time. But when you are trying to figure out what you've accomplished in the past week and you come up empty handed, that's an indication that maybe it's time to get out and do something.
Change up your routine. Escape the monotony of everyday life. Get out there and do something that you've never tried before. Two weeks back, I packed up my camping gear and headed out on a two week camping expedition with my friend and her family. We danced it up at a music festival and spent days lounging at the beach. We spent the nights circled around a campfire and slept tucked under a low-hanging tree in our two-person tent. It was something I'd never done before and that felt great.
So when you realize that you've watched three seasons of Desperate Housewives in less than a week, get off the couch and try something new. Go outside of your comfort zone and dive into an experience that you can hold with you for a long time. When you get back, Desperate Housewives will still be waiting for you.
