The human #mind thrives on new experiences.
Without these our brains get bored and lazy and generally underused. One way to introduce novelty into your life is to read something that isn’t your normal choice. Pick up a magazine that you have never read, or look through a section of the newspaper that you normally skip. Go to a library and pick a random book from a random shelf. Can you remember that time when you sat in a waiting room, and picked up a magizine to pass the time?
This is a great way to learn new and interesting things. You never know when you might discover a new interest or learn something that relates to something that you are currently working on.
