Feeling bored? Here are 8 new things to try today

Everyday is an opportunity to do something different and to try something new - a new dish, a new routine, a new look, but not necessarily a new you. It’s not about changing who you are, but something to broaden your experience, or add variety to what you have grown accustomed to. Of course with some restrictions still in effect, you gotta be creative.  But when asked what you do for fun or what interesting thing you’ve tried out lately, wouldn’t it be great to talk about something out of character and equally productive?

Learn a new language

Digital connectivity brought the world within reach, and being able to speak a new language opens more opportunities to meet, make new friends and learn a different culture.

Learn to play a musical instrument

Learning to play a musical instrument lowers your stress levels because it refocuses attention to a positive and enjoyable activity. It also improves the cognitive memory because learning to play one requires the use of both the right and left part of the brain, which works the brain harder and improves memory.  A ukelele is a fun instrument to start with.
