I am thankful to have the life I have strategically positioned myself with so that play is incorporated to my work and personal time. My clients get little mini-adventures every time they go out with me. When you sign on with Bigger Picture RT the fun begins when you enter the door. As we meander through our daily lives though, our routine settles in and we may forget to toss a little fun into life. Most likely this happens due to kids schedules, weather, and/or little free time.

This weekend I ventured over to Austin to ride bikes with new friends, and kayak with old ones. It was a multi-sport action packed day and I stayed the night to explore the music nightlife so vibrant there. Even though it was one day and night, I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the week.

If you find yourself stuck in a rut, or lacking adventure in your life, try some of these methods to get you refreshed again.

  1. Make Room For It

Seems simple enough, but that is the first step to bringing adventure and free time to your world. Life is filled with endless chores and tasks so setting aside free time into your busy schedule is key. Delegate or eliminate mundane responsibilities that do not serve you. Do not be guilty of avoiding what makes you happy.

  1. Shake Up Your Routine

Start or end your day with meditation or yoga (if you don’t already), as it will aid in clearing the head of life’s clutter. Take a different route to work. Buy something different at the grocery store. Invite someone to coffee.

  1. Get Out of the House

Especially during winter months, get outside and step away from electronics. Go to the bookstore, the park or nearest art gallery. Changing your immediate scenery you look at every day helps invite the adventure and creativity in.

  1. Don’t Wait

How long have you been pondering on doing something you’ve wanted to do for a long time? Don’t play it safe any longer, take the leap towards an activity you have wanted to try or learn for years. You are the creator of your life, so don’t waste any more time. Take the creative adventurous lead in your life today!

What are you waiting for, get after that adventure. And as always, if you need some help – find me and I will move you in the right direction!
