If you’re a person with responsibilities, then life is bound to feel a little monotonous sometimes. When you have rent to make, bills to pay, a job to go to, and maybe even dependents like pets or kids, there has to be a decent amount of routine to your daily life if everything is going to function. So don’t feel too bad if your days have started to blur together—you’ve probably just been taking care of business like a responsible adult. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t take the occasional opportunity to shake things up. There’s a lot to experience in this life. There are a lot of places to go. While you may not have the means to be a nomad (nor would you want to be because you like making friends in one place and staying there), you can still add a little motion to your life. Here are ways to shake up your life if you’re feeling stuck.

Shadow a friend

Do you have a friend who owns a business about which you’ve always been curious? Maybe you have a friend who has a restaurant, food truck, dance studio, or beauty salon. Ask if you can immerse yourself in her world for the day. Shadow her. Just see what her day to day is like (and help out if you can). It’s a no-strings way to completely experience a different career and world for a day.
