I saw this list in the July 2012 issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine…”four ways to shake up your routine – and pocket greater happiness.” Some nice ideas to consider if you find yourself settled in your ways.
1. Make a new friend. As we get older, our social circles tend to shrink. Making new friends is a great way to break out of a rut.
2. Upgrade your style. Settling for the same look year after year can leave you looking and feeling tired. Step outside your comfort zone by getting a fresh haircut or donning a colorful scarf. It will give you a shot of confidence that brightens your entire outlook.
3. Pursue a second career. The profession you chose at 22 doesn’t have to last you through retirement.
4. Adopt a tricky hobby. Acquiring skills can soothe stress and sharpen thinking.
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?
