Totally change your routines.
If you drive to work one way, go another way.
Usually bring lunch? Eat out.
Shy away from conversation, start one.
Stuck in a job, in the next hour take a step toward exploring a new one.
Going nowhere in a relationship? Part ways but take time off before entering another one to avoid making the same choice again.
Ruts can be things that formerly excited us.
Waiting for the perfect person, situation or opportunity to come along is a dead-end road – don’t postpone living 100% now.
The most important way to get out of a rut is to get in touch with your instincts, listen to them and never doubt them.
