3. Get Lost
Routines help get you through the day in an efficient and effective manner. But sometimes you must break routines before they become ruts.
A great way to accomplish this is by getting lost — hop in the car and start driving. When is the last time you went somewhere for the journey rather than the destination?
See what the world has to offer. When you approach a familiar intersection, turn in an unfamiliar direction — this gives you the opportunity to experience new environments and stimulation you would not have experienced otherwise.
The new information forces your brain to process it, which breaks up the recent monotony. Your new favorite coffee shop or view of the sunset could be over the next hill or around the next bend.
