Seek out novelty in the mundane


  1. Pay more attention to the present moment, however mundane. 
    Find novelty by plunging more deeply into the life you already have. It could be through meditation, journaling, going on unplanned walks, or anything that draws your attention more fully to what you’re doing right now.
  2. Seek to experience radically different things every once in a while. 
    Childhood is full of novel experiences, so we cherish them as if they lasted forever. As we age, life gets more routined, so it’s best to engage in novel experiences that would stay with us forever – no matter how simple or mundane such as taking photography, birdwatching, playing fun games with a child, etc.
