How are you being breathed? Take a moment to check in with your body. Are you tense? Is your foot tapping? Are you sleepy?
Now check in with your mind. How did a month of mixing it up feel to you? Take some time to consider this; maybe write it down if you feel called to.
I did something new every single day in April. Sometimes it was as simple as drinking a Swedish juice box, or using a new adversary in one of my favorite board games. Sometimes it was big and scary like attending a writing club for the first time. The Cherry Blossom Festival was somewhat disappointing, but I ended up getting to wander around the Queen Anne area of Seattle with my close friend Drew. I got my ears pierced and look forward to getting to wear other earrings in a couple of months. I cooked, and I went to classes and workshops, and I got to share it with my friends and family.
I found that it was a little exhausting doing something new every day. It takes planning -- you don't just step into a new life unawares (or if you do, it seems to be much less pleasant). It takes dedication to say "Hey, I haven't done anything new today, and it's 8pm; let's go do something." I am still unpacking all of the interesting things I did and they ways in which they changed me.
I can say, however; I am a more knowledgeable, more fit, more excited, and more well rounded person than I was a month ago. And I am SO much more confident in proposing activities that I want to do, and in doing them even if no one else but me wants to. That, to me, is the biggest endorsement of mixing it up I can make. I urge you to share your experiences in the comments. What did Mix It Up Month do for you?
