When we get stuck in a rut, it takes all the conscious effort we can muster to break out of it because our habits have become ingrained in our subconscious. While on the one end, a lot of people would rather stay where they are in the comfort of knowing the results of everything they do, it’s just as important, if not even more, to step outside of this “normal” zone for once.
The biggest reason why? It’s because it allows you to feel sensations and see new connections that you would have missed out on had you continued doing the same thing.
It is not so much doing something different everyday than doing it differently that has the most significant impact.
For example, instead of meditating right after you wake up, maybe try meditating after doing a strenuous exercise routine. Or instead of always mixing tomatoes with broccoli for a meal, try replacing the second vegetable with artichoke.
It is all about experimenting with the spectrum of tastes, colours, and feelings. At the end of the day, these factors are what make us feel alive and stimulated. Imagine a world (like the one portrayed in the story of The Giver) where everything has no colour and the food all tastes the same. It would be a boring and numbing existence to have. Luckily we are not limited in this way; in fact, we have an infinite spectrum of combinations of anything that can yield results beyond our imagination!
Make your life exciting. Get up everyday and vow to do things differently. When you see the same man walking his dog down the street, give him a smile instead of scrolling through your phone. Spend an extra 5 seconds to appreciate the sunlight passing through your window. Say good morning to your partner before you start checking your phone. There are so many things you can do to pull yourself out of the hole you have been roaming around in for so long.
Bless yourself with the gift of exploration and curiosity of your fascinating human body and potential. Feel the power of the universe through every atom of your being. Build that deeper bond with yourself and everything else in your life will start shining in billions of rays of beauty.
May you live life fully from the colour yellow to the colour teal with the infinite love of the world! ❤
