I turn left where I would normally turn right. So what if it adds fifteen minutes to my drive, those are going to be fifteen interesting minutes. You are going to pass things you don’t normally see and in turn you are going to excite parts of your mind that we rarely use any more — the parts that help us to navigate.
Here is another tip in the same vein that I do not do often enough but should: If you are normally the one who drives, try sitting in the passenger seat for a ride or two. Trust me, you will see things you never noticed before.
