Why you should try something new

I for one, love trying out new things, pushing myself beyond my limits, and getting outside of my comfort zones. I believe there are many different benefits when it comes to taking on a new challenge and simply testing the waters in whichever area in your life.

1. Excitement and curiosity.

Trying out new things helps to keep you from dying of boredom. In this world, thanks to technology it is easier than ever to discover and learn something new.

There are so many different kinds of things we can start to learn and experiment with. Whether it is to try a new hobby, food, or commit to a new friendship or relationship, trying to dress differently and even to put yourself through entirely different experiences.

2. Self-discovery

When trying new things, you will either want to continue doing it or move on to the next big thing and with that, you get to know yourself a whole lot better.

You might even discover hidden talents or even maybe inabilities.

I believe that knowing more of who you are will automatically improve self-confidence, courage, and the way you see yourself as well.

3. It can open up new windows.

Life is a funny thing and sometimes the strangest things happen when we try something new. Opportunities that we didn’t even know existed could pop up whether it is professional or personal.

4. Gives you a chance to meet new people.

Starting anything new, you are most likely not the only one doing something and it can be rather easy to find someone already doing the same thing.

5. It can help expand your perspectives in life.

When doing new stuff we learn something/anything and immediately change our mind and the way we see some things.

6. It shows you that you are capable of more.

When reaching a milestone we always want to take it to the next level, because we know that we are capable, we know we will eventually get there, we know we can achieve more than we already have.

7. It keeps your brain active.

Trying something new automatically lets your brain learn new things and improve memory and knowledge.

8. It teaches you patience.

Some things can really test your patience in the most brutal ways, but I believe it is necessary because that is how we learn to be more patient.

9. You’ll see that your time is valuable.

Maybe you’ve wasted a lot of time, trying something new will make you want to do more of what you love, to be more productive, and stop doing the things that won’t ever get you anywhere.


Today I challenge you to go and try out something new, try absolutely anything out. Is there a food you’ve always wanted to try? A language you’ve always wanted to speak? A sport/hobby you’ve always wanted to try? A place you’ve always wanted to visit?

Do and try something new, bring more excitement into your life.

Have a great day/night and thank you so much for reading, I truly appreciate it.💕

  107. Ya know God based living simply means to ya a commitment to being cognizant of that promise. No going around proselytizing because it’s about ya self! No one else can will that into ya, it’s incumbent upon ya! Period! So in essence in my world view God is love and Love is God! Living it Up! Essentially what it means to be alive. To be able to go out and do what ya will! Wow, but ya know really simple once we also allow others to do as well. Here is where the dichotomy begins because so many people are unable to enjoy life, living =God based living since they are truly miserable and forlorned And unfortunately I believe that it is one of the many things that we endeavor to change! I got windy. Sorry 😐🙏🐕♒️🙌

    Good morning, Karlien, after all that, you need cheering up. Thank you for your ‘liking’ of my comment on the importance of being enthusiastic, such a brilliant post. I could add a few more, for example, James Herriot who was rejected by 17 publishes. Only succeeded when by chance, he met a publishing agent who loved animals. He sold millions of his wonderful stories about his veterinary practice. Now we have here a new TV series based on his books and the nostalgic look of 50s rural England is a pleasure to watch.

    “Be brave enough to suck at something new.” Words that bear living by. It doesn’t have to be a big thing every time, but learning something new every day helps us move forward. Or backwards. Or sideways. Our up and down. If stay where we are we still always and only have what we’ve got. Embrace uncertainty and delve into the excitement of trying new things! I’m getting better at it, and am all the better for it.
