10 ways to start breaking your dull routine

Do you feel like you’re stuck in Groundhog Day? Your days merging into one long day, doing the same things on repeat and then realising one twelfth of the year is already gone and you’ve not done any of the things you set out to do. Here’s 10 ways to take time out for yourself and break the routine.

  1. For a whole week say yes to every invitation. Been asked out on a tinder date to the transport museum, say yes. Work colleague invites you for post work drinks at a dry bar, say yes. A friend invites you to their knitting club, say yes. See what other people are up to, they just might introduce you to something you love. 
  2. Learn something new. You’ve put it off time and time again, but now is the time to start learning that super cool skill you told yourself you’ll always learn. Whether it’s archery, beer can modeling or even Buddhist accounting. Do it, do it now. Forgo that Netflix binge and learn something.
  3. Use some of your holiday to do something you love. Take some time off work. Turn your phone off and go do something you really love. Lock yourself in your house and re-decorate, take a long weekend to your favourite destination. Work on your passion project.
  4. Be-friend some like minded people. Got an interest that you don’t share with your current friends. Chances are someone has made a meetup group, club or society for it. Why not join one and make new friends.
  5. Have a different breakfast each morning. It may take some extra planning, but not having the same old boring cereal every morning is a quick and easy way to change up your routine. Check out Pinterest for all the recipes you could ever need and want.
  6. Wear a new colour. Stuck in a monochrome rut? Buy something colourful. A scarf, a jumper, even if it’s painting your nails neon yellow. Introduce some colour into your life and see if you feel any different.
  7. Do something nice for someone else. Help a friend out with their project, volunteer for a charity or just surprise a stranger with a random act of kindness. You’ll feel good, they’ll feel good. Everyone feels good.
  8. Explore. Walk around somewhere you’ve never taken the time to. It could be around your house, that street you see on the way to work and have always wondered what was down there or even that place your friend told you was really beautiful.
  9. Take part in an online challenge. Projects like #100HappyDays challenge people to take photos of things that make them happy for 100 days in a row or our very own #28NewThings that challenges you to try new things for 28 days straight and make it a habit. Join the community or set yourself your own challenge.
  10. See old friends. Been meaning to reconnect with old friends. Pick up that phone, set a date and make the effort to not only see them, but to see them regularly.
