The only way that one can grow as a person is to understand one’s self. The more one does to become a better person, the more they are going to understand what they are all about. Also, they are going to be happier. There are many things one can do to test themselves and break free of their comfort zones. These trials help people learn how to be more confident, stick up for themselves, have fun, and be more social with others. Here are some experiments to try that can help to improve your life:

1. Ask Someone Out on a Date.

Stop flirting and dropping hints. Come right out and let the other person know you are interested.

2. Get Rid of Clutter.

Throw away stuff you aren’t using. Clutter weighs people down.

3. Do a Good Deed.

Doing something nice for someone else makes people happy. It doesn’t have to be much. Even just buying someone a cup of coffee will make you feel good about yourself.

4. Try Juicing.

Try eating nothing but vegetarian foods and drinks to improve your energy.

5. Be Spontaneous.

Buy a ticket to someplace you have never been. Then, travel alone and see how independent you can be.

6. Step Back from Bad Relationships.

If your relationship is going sour, take some time for yourself to think about what you really want from it. Either you will have a better relationship, or you will end it.

7. Talk to Strangers.

Even though Mom said never to do this, it can make you feel really good to just smile and say “hi” to people passing by.

8. Go for a Walk.

Instead of driving or taking public transport, start walking whenever you can. You’ll be surprised at how much you notice about your surroundings when you’re walking around.

9. Tell Your Story.

Share something personal with the world by writing it as your Facebook status or in a personal blog. The more people like and share the post, the more you will be able to grow as a person.

10. Visit a Fortune Teller.

Have a reading done to help you choose future paths. Try unusual ways to see future like iChing, runes or precognitive dreaming.

11. Get Drunk and Get Creative.

Have a few drinks and try doing something creative, such as drawing or songwriting.

12. Let Others Know how Much they Mean to You.

Don’t wait for someone to do something nice to let them know how much you appreciate them.

13. Live by Yourself.

Test yourself to see if you have the resources to take care of yourself and your home with no help.

14. Cut Coffee and Alcohol from Your Diet.

Giving these up can lead to better health.

15. Avoid the News.

The news can be depressing, so don’t watch it for a while. You don’t always have to be up on everything.

16. Avoid Social Media.

Set a certain amount of time, such as a day or a week, to turn off all social media websites. You may be surprised to see how much fun you can have in life when you are not sitting in front of the computer all the time.

17. Turn Off the Internet.

If you are going to try giving up social media, why not give up the computer altogether for a few days? Find other things to fill your time, such as reading or other hobbies.

18. Stop Playing Video Games.

See how long you can go without playing your favorite games and try doing something else instead.

19. Spice Up Your Resume.

Create a resume that is unique and stands out from the crowd.

20. Be Offensive.

Don’t hold back just because you don’t want to offend anyone. Your opinions matter too.
