We Forgot To Be Spontaneous

  • Spontaneity is the state of being open to whatever situation is presented to you as it happens
  • This can mean anything from trying a new restaurant for lunch at your colleague's suggestion to waking up and deciding to go to the beach today.
  • Living in the moment opens you up to new experiences, which can boost happiness.

The Curse of Overscheduling

  • Without moments of serendipitous interaction and activity, it's not a fully lived life.
  • Leisurely activities are often given concrete beginning and end times.
  • Constantly monitoring the time so you can make it to a friend's birthday party after your child's morning swim lessons distracts from the fact that leisure activities are supposed to be pleasurable.

How to Be More Spontaneous

  • Break out of fear-based responses, in which you feel threatened and make a choice to protect yourself.
  • Shift to more mindful-based thought processes to embrace spontaneity.
  • Have the time and space to be spontaneous: Don’t worry about money, you have expendable income.
  • Many off-the-cuff activities can be cost-free: Wearing an old band T-shirt you found in the back of a drawer.
  • Saying hello to other students at school.
  • Sending a text to a friend you haven't seen in a while.
