2. Eat something you've never tried for lunch at least once a week.


Even if you live in a small town, there are probably hundreds of menu items you've never tried. Foster a spirit of culinary exploration, and embrace the hunt.

3. Coordinate dressing up the same as your work friend for a few days and pretend it's a coincidence.

It'll really start to weird people out, and only you'll know the truth.

4. Take your sock game to the next level.

If you're lacking in fashion sense, socks are the easiest way to add some flair and seem like you know what you're doing. You really can't screw this up!

5. Midday movies!

It's easier than you think. All you need is an hour-long lunch combined with the amount of time it takes to run an errand or go to the doctor. As long as you don't overdo it, no one will ever know.

6. Challenge yourself to take a slightly different route to and from work every day.

Cities are constantly changing and full of hidden gems. Give yourself an extra 15–20 minutes to get to work and explore.

8. Pick a random topic to research every morning.


Expand your mind and get out of the grind of thinking only about work. It's surprising how nourishing 15 minutes exploring the Wikipedia pages for the history of dogs or alien abductions can be.

9. If you take public transit, strike up a conversation with a stranger who you see on a regular basis.

Most people are surprisingly receptive to being asked "how's your day going?" and you might end up making a friend or hearing a good story.

11. Change up your work location as frequently as possible.

If you work on a laptop or do work over the internet, take full advantage of your mobility. Explore coffee shops, cafés, parks, or even rooftops.

12. And finally, go and see bands you've never heard of.


As you get older, it may seem that fewer of your friends are excited to go see live music. Fight this trend! Pick one night per week and challenge yourself to find the hidden gems in the show listings.

Take this survey. It's almost like taking a quiz!
