Punekars, don’t you get bored sometimes? You find yourself becoming a little dull whining about the mundane routine. It feels like you are stuck in the rut and it will take months or years to get back your exciting life.
We do long for a more exciting and happening life but at the same time resist it even more. We become so comfortable with our routine that it’s daunting when we are actually faced with the opportunity to do something about our ever-so-mundane routine.
Do you want to make your life exciting and fun?
You can maybe , go to Goa drink a chilled beer on the beach, watch bikini-clad women sunbathing or you can take an adventure trip to the Himalayas with random backpackers. Isn’t it? Seems like a long haul. Even though we’d all love to do that , we have too many obligations to fulfill and responsibilities to take care of. Aah!
But you don’t have to do something dramatic or big to make your life exciting. Small changes ,self-improvement stretches and shifts in thinking are enough to make your life exciting , fun and snap-chat worthy .
Here’s a list of 10 things Punekars can do to make their lives super exciting and super fun.
Click pictures of things that catch your eye:
On your way to work , click pictures of your surroundings. Pune is a pretty place and sometimes it’s beauty goes unnoticed. This way you will start noticing your surroundings more and more grateful of your surroundings.
Give yourself a challenge
What is it that you’ve been delaying or knowingly ignoring?
What have you been longing and have been unable to achieve?
Start by taking small steps. Give yourself a challenge .Go buy new stationary – sticky notes and sketch pens. Every night before sleeping set a challenge for yourself- “Tomorrow I will drink a glass of coconut water”. Easy-peasy , right?
Get out and Play:
What happened to us? We used to play all day and come back home with dirty clothes and it used to be super fun! And it’s still fun! Get back your inner child. Ask your colleagues to play a game of badminton or volleyball.
Make Fitness Your Playground:
Do you remember going to the water park as the kid? That one wrist band allowed you access to different rides. Yes no separate tickets, just show the band and you’re on board! Fitato is exactly the same.
It means you have one access pass to a variety of fitness centers. Experiment with different formats. Go for Zumba on Mondays and start the week with a bang. Let Tues & Wed be for yoga when office stress is hitting the peak. How about swimming on Thurs ? Try that. And get your partner to the Belly dancing on Fridays! Saturday wanna skip? Nah! We’ve got kickboxing too for you to try out!
Yes, pick from a platter of different workout formats so that you’re never bored or sick of your ‘same’ routine every day. Make new friends, go with friends and make fitness your best friend!
