The Benefits of Trying Something New

Let's face it, we are creatures of routine. We find something we like and/or an activity we are really good at, and we stick with it. There is no problem with improving on something you love. It is great if you have the focus and determination to eventually take a hobby to the next level. However, there are major benefits to trying something new once in a while to supplement your favourite activity.

Try a New Activity Because:

1. You will work other muscle groups.

When you are only say, running or swimming, you use the same muscles over and over. Throw something in to the mix like basketball for example, and you will discover muscles you did not even know existed.

2. A new activity gives overused muscles a break.

If you are an avid runner, and then you take up something with no impact, and muscularly lengthening (like yoga) instead of shortening (running), your body will thank you! No matter what exercise you love, you always need a break. If the supplemental activity happens to compliment the primary discipline, as with running and yoga, you are on top of your game!

3. Your body will respond REALLY well.

This is my favourite point, because it is the most beneficial. When your body is faced with an unfamiliar activity, it is a really challenge! Not only will you notice physiological changes on the inside, (ex. improved cardio capacity) your physique will actually change! As most can probably guess, the same activity day in and out, does not change physical appearance. The only way, is to do something different.

Try Something New!
It Works!

    There are loads of types of exercise that most of us never think of doing. A friend of mine, for instance, took up belly dancing a couple of years ago. I can't believe the difference it made to her figure and she tells me it is heaps of fun. She also said it really works you whole body and even if it is a freezing night in the middle of winter, five minutes of belly dancing and you are all warmed up!
