Jump Start Your Life Again

Aug 25, 2008
A routine is a magical thing in a performance such as ice skating. In everyday life, it can suck the proverbial soul out of you. If you find yourself in a rut, you need to break the routine.

Inspiration is a funny thing because it is unique. Simply put, it is different things to different people. One person might see a story on the news and be incredibly inspired. The person sitting next to them, however, may start clicking the channel looking for something else to watch.

There is an old axiom about life going on all around us, yet we don't notice. If you get caught up in the repetition of your life, it can often become pure drudgery. You need to open your eyes to the world.

So, how do you beet the rut that daily life can become. Again, it is in the small things. Stepping beyond your daily routine is the way to do it. Here are a list of little things that anyone can do and will jumpstart you.

1. Go see a random band.

2. Instead of being cautious, plan on saying yes to something new at least once a day.

3. Take a long, hot bath.

4. Acknowledge a moment in time. What happened yesterday or tomorrow does not matter as much as what is happening now.

5. Read an old diary.

6. Kiss your spouse or partner.

7. Call a brother or sister to reminisce and laugh.

8. In the shower, clear you mind and enjoy the hot water.

9. Try a food you have never had before.

10. If you are eating out, focus on the taste of the food, not the discussion at the table.

11. Learn to meditate.

12. Hold a wine tasting party.

13. Realize you can do it if you want to.

14. Hey, even George Bush became president. If he can, what can you accomplish?

15. Volunteer for anything.

16. Stop worrying about what you cannot control.

17. Clean your bathroom. For some reason, you will always feel better.

18. Brighten up your house or office with flowers.

19. Make a list of all the good things about you. Don't be bashful!

As you can see, getting out of a rut is often about doing the little things. Having a giant epiphany is a pretty rare event, so focus on the things around you and enjoy.
