Add some tang to your life ! (NaBloPoMo Post #5)

I decided to make Pasta for dinner today. I boiled up some pasta, sautéed some vegetables and then tossed the two together. Finally I added some garnishing. But I was not too happy with the result. It was same old boring pasta with a lot of vegetables in it ! Then I added some of this.

And the result was some yummy tangy tongue tickling pasta ! All it required was some tang to turn a boring pasta dish into something that tasted so divine!
That’s what happens with life isn’t it ! We lead boring routine, predictable lives, and after a while nothing seems fresh and exciting!.Sometimes we need to add tang to our lives by shaking things up a bit! It needn’t be something as drastic as changing your job or going backpacking across the world ! All we need to do is make some simple changes. Here are a few things I do to bring the zing back into my life !
1) Change is always good !
It could be something as simple as changing your hairstyle, revamping your wardrobe, or simply changing the way furniture is arranged in your house.

2) Try something different !
How about going to the see a play instead of catching a movie ! How about trying Mexican or Lebanese food rather than the same old Thai or Chinese that you eat whenever you go out ! Bored of jogging everyday? how about learning pilates instead, or something as simple as swimming for that matter !

3) Learn something new
It could be anything, cooking, pottery, painting, gardening, or learning a new language. Learning something new stimulates the mind and you end up meeting a lot of new and interesting people too !

4) Spontaneity is the spice of life !
Do on-the-spur things. Predictable is boring and spontaneity sure adds spice to life! Do something totally unplanned! Just pick up those car keys and go for a long drive, Pack a overnight bag and just take off for a weekend holiday !

5) Take up a challenge

It could be anything, blogging everyday for a month, taking part in a debate, signing up for a marathon !
So what are you going to do to make your life tangy !


  1. Tangy ideas.....Will pick it up at the supermart.

  2. Enjoyed this post. I agree change can make such a huge difference if one's life is otherwise a boring routine.

    I also know of people who can't survive without a regular dose of tangy change.

  3. @Alka - Thanks !
    @IHM - I am one of those people and badly in need of some tang these days !
