So, lately I’ve been living life very spontaneously. Some days I’m focused on this and other days I’m focused on that. To an outsider he/she may think I am unfocused or lacks direction. But to me, the spontaneous acts are all a fraction of the bigger picture. So how do you live your life? Are you spontaneous? Do you have random moments in life? I read in some article online that spontaneous acts actually can improve life. I must say, I do agree. Always having routine and consistent demands creates anxiety for me. Now I understand and believe everyone must have structure in their lives, it’s essential. But I believe it’s those “off the wall” moments that makes waking up to a new day EXCITING.
Here are 3 spontaneous things to try. (DISCLAIMER: it’s not actually spontaneous if you plan, but you get the idea) lol.
- Acts of kindness: On any given day just be nice to someone you dislike. Perhaps buy a co-worker a cup of coffee, tip the waiter a little extra cash. You will be surprised at the gratitude you receive just by helping someone else.
2. Try a new hobby: There are so many sports, classes, games, places to visit…it is so many things to do and visit, pick one and enjoy. Perhaps checking out a different magazine could make you aware of what’s new and what’s happening. Something new is always appreciated.
3. Take a random trip: This trip does not have to be luxurious and expensive. Take a weekend getaway road trip; visit a friend or family member you haven’t seen in a while. Sometimes different scenery is needed to regroup and refocus on the main aspects of your life.
I absolutely love spontaneous acts; it makes me feel empowered and freed from all of the actual and factual struggles. So try it! Be spontaneous and let me know how it worked out
