“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” ― Roald Dahl
When we live the same routine over and over, we might miss some of the wonders this life has to offer. Here are some quick ways to re-inspire your passion and sense of adventure each day, simply by opening your eyes to the world around you.
1. Take in Art
No matter where you live, you can find exhibitions and galleries to inspire your creative side. Viewing different styles of painting, sculpture and other colorful expressions can help you find new perspective on other aspects of your life. If you don’t like museums and galleries visit your local bookstore and flip through any art/culture magazine.
2. Feed Your Senses
Variety is the spice of life. One good way to step away from your comfort zone is by eating out, ordering, or trying your own hand at recipes from a different culture (perhaps with a bit of spice included).
3. Find Your Rhythm
Dance is communication without language. Viewing a dance performance can reawaken your fascination with the marvelous human body – or dancing yourself can directly stir your passion for balance, movement and rhythm in your day.
4. Visit History
Remember being little, when history museums inspired your deepest imaginations? Revisit that feeling by finding an online resource for interesting historical or cultural facts.
5. Read for Knowledge
Lose yourself in the dusty, golden halls of your nearest library. Or simply reopen your favorite hardcover to discover past mysteries and adventures.
6. Learn a Language
Start by finding 1 new way to say Hello or Thank You. Expand your linguistic horizons by picking up a new way of communicating with others – with virtual training tools, learning new languages is easier than ever before.
7. Become a Traveler
See the world, and be amazed. And you don’t have to visit a foreign country – what about natural wonders or historic destinations nearby your home?
8. Push Yourself
The only way to swim in new experiences is to dive in the deep end. Consider taking an activity or class you never would have dreamed of before – like rooftop yoga or outdoor running clubs.
The chance for new explorations and experiences exists in every day. All we have to do is wake up, step forward, and place ourselves in the position to be amazed.
