The world is full of interesting experiences, ready for you to go out and take in. Unfortunately, most days you're tired after work and all you want to do is go home and relax on the couch with some Netflix. Fortunately, to really tap into what the world has to offer, sometimes it's as close as your own shower.

Trust me.


Reddit user, u/delayedinstantkarma, wanted to know what you might have missed out on when they asked:

Whats a good example of "Don't knock it till you try it"?

That. Extra. Crunch.

Putting chips on a sandwich for that extra delicious crunch

Going to the movies alone.

Going to a movie alone in an empty cinema is a spiritual experience

Going In Blind

Watching a movie ONLY knowing the title, Dodge all previews , dodge all mentions of who is in it.

Depending On Where You Live

Walking instead of driving if it's possible on a lovely day.

Live in US so everything is exceptionally car friendly and always figured a walk was a waste of time. Then moved to a new city without a car and decided to spend a few weeks walking to learn the new spots and would just cab when I had to. I learned the city more intimately, lost weight, felt better about leaving my safety net, and was happy especially with weather. Just never understood how great a walk could be and now walk as far as time allows to get places. Ita great.

Again, Don't Knock Until You Try It

Showering in the dark, it's pretty therapeutic and safe if you're not an idiot

Cinnamon Perfection

Cinnamon applesauce on pancakes or waffles instead of syrup.

It's amazing! Kinda like an apple pie.

Here's A Two-For-One

Brush your teeth in the shower.

Don't have to be tidy, just brush like a maniac. Then just spit wherever! Rinse with mouthwash too. It's liberating in the same way as taking your pants off your ankles when you're on the toilet.

Seems Like You Can Have A Lot Of Fun In The Shower...

Shower beer. Wash a little, drink a little, rinse and repeat. Improved my quality of life.

The contrast of the cold beer and the warm water running over you is amazing.

Don't Worry. Let Them Struggle.

Letting your kids figure out problems on their own every now and then

I once saw a dad who let his baby struggle to reach for a toy that was just out of her reach. She spent about 15 solid minutes wiggling her way to that toy.

I almost amazed because most parents never let their children think or solve anything on their own. They just hand them what they need. Or stand them up the second they fall over. Or jump in the minute an argument breaks out. But the kids never learn to do anything on their own

D&D.

I had a friend at university who would constantly suggest playing, and I always brushed him off. Spending my weekends pretending to be an elf was not my jam, thank you very much.

Then I tried it, and it turns out it's awesome. Who would have thought that drinking beers, eating cheese and killing fake goblins with maths could be so much fun?

Comedy is in a very tricky place right now.

There is so much to NOT laugh about in this world.

In truth, many of us have forgotten how to laugh.

And certain jokes that are told, make people afraid to laugh.

So what do we do?

We tell inappropriate jokes apparently.

Let's hear some...

Redditor CrewCreation wanted to hear some "risky" comedy. So they asked:

"What’s the best morbid joke you know?"

Life can change in an instant.

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.

Redditor OkImagination5852 wanted to hear about the times we've been witness to personal disaster. They asked:

"People who witness a person's life crumble in a single day, what happened?"
