10 Ways Being Impulsive Can Make Your Life More Fun

Who knew that being impulsive could actually make things more interesting?

364

I have been told that I might be a little too impulsive. However, many people give that word a bad rap. they use the word "spontaneous" to make it sound more appealing. I admit that yes, sometimes I do not think about the choice I am about to make, but eight out of 10 times, it leads to something good and memorable. So, here I will list why being impulsive can help you!

1. You will meet so many new people.

When you decide to go out of your way to meet new people you can meet some of the most amazing friends.

I have always been someone who will stop and talk to strangers anywhere. yes, I am safe about it don't worry. The people I have met randomly have forever changed my life. Even if you don't become great friends you will learn something new.

2. You will change for the better.

Making decisions quickly that you normally would think over will make you more confident in who you are. sounds weird? You know who you are better than any other person, so trust your gut. It will make you a better you!

3. You will explore the world around you more.

Going to new places is fun! if you keep going to the same spots over and over again you won't get immersed in your community. It might be awkward going out of your comfort zone, but I have yet to regret pushing myself a little.

4. The memories will last forever.

You will make many more fun memories! If you plan something out it doesn't always go as planned, but you usually know what to expect. When you have no plan its a whole different ride. going into something not know what to expect has made some of my best memories.

5. It is a little bit thrilling.

We can't all skydive or cliff jump every day like some lucky people. However, that doesn't mean we can't find thrills around us. Making yourself go with the flow or push some of the limits is exciting and somethings can even give you an adrenalin rush.

6. You will be a little smarter than before.

You will learn a lot more about the world around you so you will have a lot more information on life. The decisions we make impact our future, so if you are impulsive you will probably be well informed.

7. You might make some interesting purchases.

if you have the cash to spare you might pick up some weird things along the way. For example, I bought a hamster. did I really think about it? no. Do I think he makes my life better? 100%. I knew I could pay for him to have a good life, so why not!

8. You will relate to others better.

Because you will meet a lot more people, you will understand people better.

9. You will think outside the box.

Your life experience will make you think outside of the box. You will Also probably problem solve faster, so it is a big win!

10. Life is more fun!

Life is just more fun when you let yourself live freely!

Make fun decisions and live your life how you want to. you are the only one in control of your path! However, please make safe decisions and put your health first! Have fun and push yourself to do new things.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
