Everyone seems to be super busy these days. With jam-packed work and/or school schedules, not to mention your home and social life, that leaves little room for a wonderful thing called spontaneity. Without it, we can easily find ourselves stuck in a boring rut, caught up in the rat race. But spontaneity often gets a bad rap. People mistakenly assume that being spontaneous is the equivalent of YOLO (“You only live once”), a term that has very little to do with seizing the day and living life to the fullest, and is often used to justify reckless behavior.
Spontaneity can be simple, and you can make room for it in your day-to-day life, whether at work or in your personal relationships with your significant other, family and friends.
