Totally agree. It’s so easy—for me, at least—to settle for living life the way you always have. Experiments have helped me break the cycle.
The most interesting part, as you say, is trying something again after a break. It lets you feel more about it. With coffee, I can actually taste it again, which is awesome. And I feel the caffeine buzz I’d forgotten about for so long.
What kinda sports do you do? I’ve always wanted to take up a sport (I’m a sucker for Badminton) but it’s tough to fit it in to my life while I travel.
