DSD = Do Something Different!!
Living abroad (not just taking a vacation in another country) is a great experience. One learns about another country, its customs, culture, & language. One learns to see one's own country from a different point of view. One sees that people are much the same everywhere, with similar concerns. One finds that other places are not better or worse than home, just different. And upon returning home, one appreciates one's native country all the more. (click title for more info)
This is a great idea to fit into any part of your life you are feeling has the "same old, same old" feel. Try a new exercise or activity if you're getting bored. Try a new fruit or veggie, or just a new recipe if your meals are feeling blah. You can even try something new on the motivational side!!
