“Flexibility is a major key in being able to make changes more easily. Unfortunately, most people are stuck living as automatons. They live day in and day out on autopilot. They spend time in the same places with the the same people. They go to the same jobs, eat the same foods in the same places, engage in the same recreational activities with little variety to spice things up.

Our brains create novelty and stimulation. Our brains like challenges and look for solutions. Give your brain new things to do and new ways to do things and it will love you.  Learn something, new, memorize something, do something different. Provide your brain with the stimulation it craves and you will feel better off.

Take a different way to school or work. Try different foods. Eat in new places with new people. Expand your horizons. Spend time around new and different people. Take a class or two somewhere. If your first instinct is to say ‘nah, not for me’, give it a shot. Who knows you might just like it.

Roll down a hill, spin  like a whirling dervish, dance with abandon, skip, walk and enjoy new territory. Sleep with your head at the foot of the bed. Try a different cleansing order when bathing. Brush your teeth and eat your food using the other hand. All of it will seem difficult or odd at first and that is the point. Challenge yourself.

Dress in a different order. Wear clothes that ‘just are you’. Put together some puzzles, try crossword, sudoku or other games. Take up some new hobbies. Read books, listen to music, watch movies or TV shows you wouldn’t ordinarily.Try some new sports or recreation. Keep learning. Keep Growing! Keep doing  new things.

Add novelty into your daily life. Mix it up and have fun. Stay sharp and live well. Enjoy discovering new things you can do that help you stay young, mentally fit and overall more healthy. Stop doing everything the old way. Break up your routines and explore some new ways to enjoy! It will help you make other positive changes more easily.”  Rex Sikes
