Variety is the spice of life

by Lisa Lyford
Variety is the spice of life

Do something different today. 

 

It needn't be something big.  Take a different route to work.  Have something different for lunch, something you've never had before.  Phone someone you haven't contacted for a long time.  Talk to someone in your office you've never spoken to.  Learn about something you've wanted to know about for ages.  Take a plunge in the sea!

 

It's important to mix things up, try new and different things. 

 

Beekeeping 

 

A friend recently told me she's learning the art of beekeeping.  I just about fell off my chair when she told me.  It was the most unlikely thing I would expect her to do.  But that was the fantastic thing about it, that it was something really different and very interesting.  Interestingly enough, beekeeping is going through a bit of a rejuvenation - women of all ages are keen to learn the art because of its natural wonders used in medicines, beauty products, horticulture and general gardening.

 

Another friend recently applied for a volunteer job as an ambulance driver - to try her hand at something completely different, away from the arts.  My sister has recently volunteered to help out at Ronald McDonald House - she's pushed for time as it is but it's important to her.  I really admire and love her for that.

 

And I recently decided that I'm going to make a point of meeting new people when I'm out, say through work or socialising - find out about them. Not only is it enjoyable, but you learn something at the same time - some people lead some very interesting lives!

 

I also recently tried pottery - I'd always had a hankering to use a potter's wheel.  After an 8-week block course, I now have a new appreciation for potters - it is WAY harder than it looks!

 

These are just a few examples of trying different things - whether it's something very small like varying the route you take to work or on your walk, to trying a new hobby.

 

Have you tried or done something new lately? Tell us about it!
