When was the last time you tried something new? Too often we get caught up in a routine and end up being disgruntled or unhappy with how our life is. If you find yourself in this circumstance, then this week’s Nantucket Gate Blog is for you! Keep reading for 3 ways you can broaden your horizons and break your boring routine!

Make a Plan

If you’re looking to break your routine, you may want to start by planning it. Not everyone is spontaneous by nature and many find it uncomfortable to break their routine, so planning can help ease those concerns. It doesn’t matter what you plan to do, as long as it doesn’t fall in line with your regularly scheduled activities. Make sure you’re trying something new! A good plan makes a change to your routine more enjoyable. 

Change One Thing 

The easiest way to broaden your horizons is by making a singular change to start! Every big change starts with a small step, which is why changing one thing about your routine can lead to you trying more things! Start with picking a new place to have dinner, or picking something new off the menu at a place you regularly eat at. It may seem weird at first, but give it a try!

Make a List

As much as we stick to a routine, it’s only natural to want to try different things. While you go about your life, write down the new things you wish to try in a list! Once you’ve gotten a decently long list, go through them and prioritize which items on your list you’d like to try first. As you go about your life, reference this list and do one every so often!
