While I tend to do well with routine when it comes to eating the “right” food, getting my tush in gear, and even sleep, I often find myself craving something adventurous or different. While I can be a creature of habit (Aren’t we all?), it seems that too much “routine” leaves me feeling like I’m in a rut. I end up feeling restless and in need of adventure.
Nothing’s wrong, I’m feeling too confined and dare I say bored? Don’t get me wrong, I have lots to do, I just don’t feel engaged in any of it at the moment.
(First world problems, right?)
My days are largely the same and my weeks keep a very similar rhythm. It looks something like this on my calendar from week to week:
Each day I also hang out with that guy I Like, maybe watch some tv/do a project/read a book and try to sleep. Sometimes on the weekends I take a nap or see friends/family and often if I’m at the pool to teach, I get a swim in too.
I don’t wish to complain or whine because over all I do like my life and it’s general happiness. I need to shake it up a little. Add a little pizazz or glitter if you will.
I can’t do much about the work, teaching and sleep* part, I need my paychecks and the various things that come with them, but I could do something fun with my generous lunch break instead of eating at my desk and working/reading. I can get Frank to go different places/do different things with me when we hang out and maybe ever try new foods.
Heck, I don’t know. I’m just typing the words that come out of my fingers. What I do know is that I need to change things up somehow. This rut is starting to get to me.
What do you do to get out of a rut?
I did change something though! I ate my lunch outside in the sunshine instead of at my desk. All it’s changes so far was that I wasn’t cold for a bit
* when I do sleep…
