As we get older, change doesn’t happen as often, or at least, we do not go about seeking it. We get stagnant and stuck in daily or weekly routines. We aren’t necessarily scared of new things but also do not see the need for them when certain things steadily contribute to our comfortable lives.

When we throw ourselves into a new setting with new people or a whole new schedule or new activities, that is when we can really grow. Being in a whole new environment and ideally for a longer period of time, really gives us the contrast we need from our day to day to recognize the things that work and the things that don’t work.

If given the opportunity, toss hesitation aside and try on something different to see how you can change your life for the better.
