5 Ideas for Awakening the Dreamer Within

Discover your dream with these tips for breaking out of your routine and getting more out of life.

Ever get that nagging feeling you’re not living life to the fullest? Awaken the dreamer within with ideas for living a more vibrant life:


Nothing stirs the soul more than new flavors! Invigorate your senses with a stroll through the farmer’s market, a day at a local cooking class or a creatively themed potluck with friends.


Believe it or not, our incessant Googling can cause us to miss out on the gratifying gifts of human connection and storytelling that naturally occur when people ask one another questions. Whether it’s chatting with your barista about your café’s new coffee blend or having a family member tell you what it was like growing up in a different era, you’ll enjoy a much richer life experience by taking the time to ask.


Take a class. Volunteer. Borrow a book from the library on a topic you’re curious about. Watch online tutorials to teach yourself something new or improve on a skill you already have. By stepping outside your comfort zone, you can gain curiosity, confidence and a better understanding of what makes you, well, you.


“Don’t dwell in the past.” We’ve all been cautioned to look forward, not back. However, some of the most fulfilling moments come from flipping through photo albums or watching embarrassing family videos, especially in the company of loved ones. Few things compare to reminiscing over old stories or sharing a laugh over a dog-eared snap shot—and sometimes a little trip down memory lane is all it takes to inspire new possibilities.


Let’s face it, we’re not all comfortable being spontaneous! But diverging from your normal schedule and responsibilities can be the ticket to experiencing that heart-pumping, soul-stirring feeling of being truly alive. The best place to start is by setting aside a weekend in which you pledge not to make any plans—and practice enjoying the incredible things that are happening in the moment.
