Trying New Things
Trying new things can be scary…for both kids and adults! We always have the fear of dislike, failure, or a handful of other negative actions that our minds provide us with when contemplating something new. If you’re like most of us, once we actually try something new, we love it and want to do it again. Getting kids to try new things can be tricky, but, much like building a big project with LEGO® Bricks, start small and work your way up! Here are some great ways to introduce new things into your lives, for kids and adults alike.
Signing up for a new sport can broaden your athletic ability, and allow you to meet new people! Study up on the rules/regulations of your new sport online by watching videos or reading over the rules. Look for technique or agility courses in your area that will help you understand the game and teach you some new moves. If organized sports aren’t of interest to you, change things up by incorporating new exercise moves into your routine. Find a new trail to walk on, a new place to lift weights, or gather up a group of friends and learn new routines from them!
We all have favorite apps we play regularly, but why not switch it up from time to time? Look for free apps or apps on sale so don’t waste your money. You can also completely toss the electronics aside and drag out the board games! Try old-school favorites such as Sorry, Battleship, or Scrabble. Can you put a new twist on a classic game?
Looking nice doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice originality. Try something new that may be out of the norm, such as a unique color or different material. If you don’t like what you see in the stores, make your own!
This is where we come in! Finding something outside home or school that’s engaging can be tricky, but one of our programs can change that. The important thing is to find a group or class that interests you and will teach you something new.
We get it…PB&J sandwiches are tasty, but what if we told you that there is a world of sandwiches out there? Branch out from your norm and try new foods. The next time you’re at the grocery store, pick out a new fruit or a different flavor of a potato chip. Who knows, you may find something you like!
Trying new things does not have to be scary. Start small and see where it gets you!
