Why Is It Important to Try New Things?

When was the last time you tried something new? Trying a new thing every day, week, month, or year can bring excitement to your life. Think of all the things you want to try or do but are afraid to try. Fear is an obstacle to pushing your boundaries, but it can also motivate you to achieve goals. Use the emotion holding you back from trying new things to your advantage.

Why Should I Shake Up My Routine?

Routine is predictable, and some find comfort in predictability. Yet, opening your mind to all of the possibilities you can experience is incredible. Maybe you’re afraid of the unknown or fear failure — remind yourself that your routine was new at one time. You tried and successfully added a new habit into your life. Suppose you committed to adding new things at regular intervals.

Switching things around or adding new adventures or skills to your life can:

Increase Your Courage

Summoning your courage can increase your self-esteem. Believing in yourself and wandering out of your comfort zone is empowering. Even if things don’t go as planned, tell yourself you tried.

Help You Find New Ways to Enjoy Your Life

Each time you try something new, you open up your possibilities. Every first time has the potential for finding a passion. You don’t know if you’ll like something until you try it.

Leave Your Boredom Behind

Suppose you love your routine and don’t see why you need to add something new. A routine does have its benefits, but so does challenging yourself. Habits become tasks you can perform without thought. A new activity requires you to keep your mind engaged.

Encourage Growth Through Action

Growth doesn’t happen when you’re standing still. Think about a goal you want to achieve. The first step you take is new to you. Every step you take is an opportunity to learn and grow.

Are There Benefits to Change?

When you try something new, you change. The psychological, physical, and creative benefits are endless, especially if you continue to incorporate things that interest or challenge you. A few other benefits include:

Building Memories

Time seems to go faster as you age. Because you fell into a routine, your days are similar. When you regularly add something new to your life (whatever interval of time works for you), memories mark those times.

Discovering Yourself

Can you say with certainty that you know everything about yourself? The adventure of pushing yourself past your comfort zone means you learn what you like, dislike, or if you have a talent. Maybe you think you will love surfing, but find out you don’t. That’s okay. What if you try hang gliding despite a fear of flying and discover you love it? If you try, you never fail.

Adventure awaits you in everything you try. You can let go of fear, find a new passion, or discover something you’re not fond of. Perhaps things don’t go well the first time. Try again. Each time you try, you grow. Maybe you’re not ready to try new things. If fear or anxiety are obstacles, you can work with a therapist at The Guest House. We can help you build healthy coping skills.
