Designate specific evenings where you avoid all screens—no TV, phone, or computer. Use the time for creative activities or socialising.
Resolve to try a new, exotic dish or ingredient each week. You can experiment with recipes from different cultures or cuisines.
Challenge yourself to say "yes" to new opportunities, even if they're outside your comfort zone.
Pretend you're a tourist in your own town or city. Visit attractions, try local foods, and explore areas you haven't visited before.
