Small and simple changes shifts in thinking, and self-improvement stretches can shake up your world enough to make it more fun, fascinating and adventurous — on your own terms.

You can get out of the rut of your everyday routine and put some sparkle into your lifestyle with just a little creative thinking and planning.

Here are 13 simple living ideas of interesting things to do.

1. Make room.

It's hard to add excitement to your life if your life is overflowing with mindless tasks and chores.

Can you simplify, delegate, or eliminate any of these boring and mindless tasks to make room for excitement?

Sometimes we fill our lives with these things in order to avoid stretching ourselves toward happiness. Is that you?

2. Shake up your morning routine.

Instead of following the same wake-up routine every day, do it differently on occasion.

Get up ten minutes early and have breakfast outside. Turn off the TV and put on music. 

Make love before work. Drive a different way. Just starting your day differently will give you a little thrill.

3. Get a makeover.

Get a new haircut, have your make-up done by a pro, buy a new outfit, or try a new style.

It's even more fun if you do this with a friend.

4. Find exciting people.

Look around at people you know whose lives seem fascinating and exciting.

Take the initiative to get to know them so that you can be included in some of their excitement.

5. Plan an adventure trip.

Even if you can't afford to take a trip now, just researching, planning, and dreaming can give you a boost and build excitement for the time when you can afford to go. Include saving money as part of your planning!

6. Learn something new.

Study a new language, a new skill, a hobby. You will open doors to meeting new people who share your interests and abilities and gain a sense of confidence and achievement.

7. Get out of the house.

Step away from the TV or computer and do something. Take a walk with a friend. Go to the bookstore and browse. Visit a local gallery or museum.

8. Try an unusual recipe.

Cook something that you've never tried before or order something unusual at a restaurant that you wouldn't normally try.

9. Write down your life vision.

Spend some time thinking about your ideal life filled fun, excitement and adventure. Write down your vision or mission statement and the actions you could take to get yourself there.

10. Try a random act of kindness.

Do something unexpectedly nice for a friend or a complete stranger. Pay for someone's coffee. Send balloons. Leave a love note.

11. Be curious about people.

Ask people questions (old and new friends) about their lives.

Learn what other people do and what makes them tick. You might discover something intriguing about them and yourself.

12. Don't wait to start.

Don't wait to try something, to initiate, to take action.

Stop playing it safe or looking for someone else to take the lead.

Be a creative creator of your life. You can make it as exciting and thrilling as you wish.


13. Do that one big thing.

Is there one big action you've been holding back on that could turn your life from boring to amazing?

Maybe it's a job change, a move, a proposal, a change of scenery, a new relationship in your life.

Whatever it is, take the first step. Action creates momentum, and momentum builds excitement.

Have you found some interesting things to do to make your life exciting?
