Adventure doesn’t always mean climbing a mountain or going bungee jumping. It can simply mean doing something unexpected and out-of-the-ordinary.
- Make up a new recipe using an ingredient you’ve never used before. Have you ever tried cooking nopales (prickly pear cactus)? How about smoked paprika?
- Host a couchsurfer. You provide the couch for an out-of-town guest, and you’ll make a new friend in the process.
- Play the “Left Right Forward” game while driving with a friend. The passenger instructs the driver to go left, right, or forward at each intersection until you’re completely lost.
- Go without internet for a day and see what happens.
- Strike up a conversation with a stranger. Tyler Tervooren at Advanced Riskology has a great article about why it’s important to talk to strangers (if you’re not a kid).
- Rearrange your furniture. You’ll gain a whole new perspective, and you’ll be more excited to spend time at home.
- Volunteer. Check out Idealist.org or VolunteerMatch.org and find an opportunity that matches your skills and interests.
- Sign up to take a free class at Skillshare.com. Better yet, sign up to teach one.
- Ask someone out on a date. Or if you’re already in a relationship, make it a friend date.
- Make something. We recommend bucket stilts or a flipbook.
