Do Something That Scares You

They say, "Do something everyday that scares you." I don't know who "they" are, but at first it may seem difficult to find something everyday that scares you (unless you live with my brother who likes to jump out behind corners every chance he gets). In any case, the point of the quote is to challenge yourself as much as possible and delve beyond your comfort zone. So today you're tasked with the pursuit of doing something new.

Have fun with this! If you've never skateboarded, you might try jumping on your kids board and seeing how you fair for five minutes. If you're having fun, keep going. If not, you still have something to be proud of. You just reconnected with your adventurous side today. Try something else tomorrow, and the next day, and so on. Not only does your brain love this, you'll bring some excitement to your life and who knows you might find something that adds to your life and brings you more joy.

More simple but Vital Actions to try...

- Taste a new food or drink
- Talk to a stranger and make a new friend
- Go somewhere you've never been (a local park, pub, cafe, or even a leisurely drive in a new direction)
- Listen to a new artist
- Visit a museum, art gallery, or garden you've never been to
