How flexible are you?

I am not talking about physical flexibility here. What I mean is do you follow a rigid pattern? Eat the same food, do the same kind of exercise, take the same route to work everyday? Moving out of the same routine can be good for the soul. When was the last time you tried a new sport? Read a different kind of book? Ate at an unfamiliar restaurant? Chose the scenic route instead of the quickest route?

Coaching challenge: If you normally run, jog or swim competitively, challenge yourself to sign up for a series of yoga or tai chi class. Don't do team sport? Join a volleyball team. Meat and potato person? Take a thai cooking class or visit a new restaurant. Too shy to dance? Sign up for salsa (my favorite) or ballroom. Trying something new will keep you mentally younger.
