Add Adventure to Your Life With These Simple Tricks

Updated on July 22, 2018

We all crave it. No matter where we’re from in the world, our age or our financial income, we all crave adventure. Most of us living in cities such as LA have busy and hectic lives. We balance our time with work, friends, family, love, yet not many of us make much time to invite some adventure into our lives.

When the word adventure is thrown around, many people instantly think of crazy things like skydiving or whitewater rafting. However, inviting adventure into your life doesn’t have to be extreme. As a matter of fact, you can invite new and exciting things into your life with just these three simple tricks.

1. Be Open To Saying Yes

I’m not telling you to say yes to everything like Jim Carrey did in Yes Man. I’m advising you to have an open mind. Just like the movie's final message, the point is knowing when to say yes or no. If a friend or stranger invites you to some activity that you’re just not comfortable in, you don’t have to do it. Be smart. Trust your gut. Nevertheless, if you’re on the fence about some activity and don’t feel uneasy about it, you should give it a shot. In the process, you could meet a new friend, discover a passion, or learn something new. Who knows what awaits you by simply opening yourself to the word yes?

2. Change Your Routine

There’s nothing wrong with living your life in a routine. It keeps us in check with all of our daily goals and errands. It provides a sense of safety and security. But every once in awhile, it’s healthy and exciting to break that routine. You can do this by simply taking a different route to and from work. You’ll explore a different area of a city you thought you knew fully. Who knows? You might feel like a rebel and decide to blast Michael Jackson’s Bad as you’re driving.

3. Get Outside

Sometimes we cramp ourselves inside our home or office and feel stressed and overwhelmed by the work we do. If you feel you’ve reached your limit, take some time and explore the outside world. A simple walk around your neighborhood or a local park can be enough to rejuvenate you. You’ll get some fresh air, the chance to clear your mind, and maybe even discover something new on your walk. The point of all this is to invite a little spontaneity into your life. Be daring, take risks, and within no time you will have invited some adventure into your life.
