Life Is an Adventure
Spontaneity is described as the quality of being produced freely and naturally, without external force, cause, or influence.
So many of our daily activities are planned almost to the minute. Our modern lives revolve so much around clocks, alarms, and schedules. Our agendas are filled with plans weeks and months ahead.
It can be overwhelming and numbing to live in this high paced society. We must take every advantage we can to escape from our normal everyday patterns and live new and exciting experiences.
Step Out the Box
Breakup Your Daily Monotony
Life can get boring after following the same daily routines. But adding a little spontaneity and variety to your daily life can really change your outlook. Don't be afraid, start adding spice to a couple of your normal daily activities, later you can work up to some wilder times. Here are some little ideas to begin with:
Exotic Meals - Nothing can spice up life like a unique and exciting meal or restaurant. If you normally have cereal then try waffles. Get some gourmet coffee in a flavor you have never tried before. Have lunch in a restaurant you have never been to before. Drive to a nearby town and pick a new place for dinner. Try an ethnic cuisine that is new to you.

Experience What Life Has to Offer
Take the Long Road - Taking the same road to work every morning may be faster and economical, but it can get stressful and boring. Wake up a little earlier and take a different route to your destinations. If you live close to work then try biking it. Check out your local bus service to find a local park and ride and give it a try.
Try on a New Hat - Trying on new and different clothes can really change your attitude and mood. Try on something you wouldn't normally wear, you might be surprised and like it. Go places you frequent with a wig, see how your attitude changes as a blonde or a brunette.
Books - Books can really change your mood and outlook on life. If you're not a reader, check out a book from the library or buy one from a local bookstore. If you are a reader, try reading a different genre. You should also think about trying poetry, if you normally read novels. If you're into fiction, why not try a biography.
