Trying one new thing a day

Throughout the month of May, I had been working on keeping my mental health higher than the bare minimum [aka what happens when I lounge around and do nothing all day]. Nothing gets my serotonin levels as high as when I’m doing something new. I made a pact at the end of April to do one new thing a day for each day in May. I recommend everyone do this as well because you get to try new things and might find a new hobby! Here’s my new thing a day for May, let me know what new things you’ve tried since quarantine!

Some of these weren’t super new but were things I hadn’t done in ages so it was nice to revisit some old things I’d done in the past

Let me know if you try some new things in June

  1. This is an amazing idea for a post! I always like to think of progress as something to be celebrated and something to be proud of, no matter in which area or how little it may be.

    And oh my god, how does one correctly cut a watermelon? 😂

    1. yes exactly! I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 Basically I could never cut straight through and some pieces were inches long and others were super thin so I got the hang of not doing that !!
