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

Not Gonna Lie: I wanted to do that for so long but always forgot, thanks for reminding me

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

It's Long Form Storytelling!

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?

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
