When is the last time you jumped in and tried a new sport?
Last week, I started playing squash. The effect on my mind has been phenomenal. I’m fired up about going to the gym and getting better — squash is challenging and a lot of fun.
Check out this video:
I did realize that this was my first new sport in about two+ years. Actually, two years ago, I really didn’t start something brand spanking new, but rather started to play racquetball after staying away since the mid-80’s. That said, racquetball after such a long layoff did have the same effect that squash has had on me this month.
All this happy-neurons-effect has helped me think about the bigger picture — how much more excited would I be about life in general, if I planned and tried a new sport at least once per year?
Variety is the spice of life, yet why do we seem to gravitate to and stay in ruts for so long?
I highly recommend taking a little initiative. Be honest with yourself: when is the last time you started a new sport? Why not dive into something new this month?
