That’s to say, I don’t look forward all the time to getting up, going to work, coming home, cleaning, cooking, watching tv and blogging, going to bed, getting up and doing it again…like a lemming. I need to shake things up. I get bored with ‘the same’ very easily, and it’s been ‘the same’ now for a few months. Do you ever get tired of ‘the same’?
So I’ve had some fun ideas on ways to shake things up.
1. I’m going to take a knitting and crocheting class. And I’m going to continue practicing until I can actually make things. I’ve knitted before, and I love how relaxing and mindless it is while also producing something.
2. I’m going to be more crafty and have fun making little things here or there. Here are my first two crafting projects:
3. I’m going to go back to the gym. Running is great, and once my hip cooperates I’ll be back at it full blast, but until I can do that, taking spin and other classes at the gym gives me things to do and makes me feel better as well.
And for now, these ideas seem great to me. I need things to get me excited and have something to look forward to. I can’t function on continuous routine.
I’m headed home to Chattanooga to spend time with my family on Tuesday, so I know that will help to shake this no-running-funk I’m in too. Do you get in funks sometimes when your routine is staying the same? What suggestions do you have to shake it up?
