Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The adventures I’ve got going
  • The importance of having adventure in your life
  • The effects that adventure can have on the brain and body

Key Takeaways:

  • For most of us, life is a “velvet rut”. The pressures of work and home can often squeeze out any bandwidth we have for working on the things we love in life.
  • Adventure varies from person to person. It doesn’t always have to be grand. It can be as simple as finding new areas to take a walk, learning to play a new instrument, or meeting new people.
  • From a body perspective, when we do something new, we get a nice dose of “happy hormones” in the the body.

Action Steps:

  • Go have an adventure. Have as much adventure as you can get.
  • Think about the things that you do on a regular basis and how much time amongst all that is there for adventure.

Leanne said:

“[Adventure] will vary from person to person. My idea of adventure can be your hell, your adventure can be my hell.”

“Often, we don’t have time for adventure. We think we don’t have time for it. We think it’s not for us. But actually, we’re all quite adventurous in our own ways.”
