Your experimenting muscle is strong when you can courageously try new things when facing adversity. This muscle is useful because it helps you take actions that might feel scary but will help you achieve better outcomes.

Some simple daily exercises you can use to strengthen this muscle include:

Small Steps: Do something new or unfamiliar. For example, you might try a new food, go a different way to get someplace or do an activity you haven’t done before.

Balanced Perspective: When you notice that something feels uncomfortable or risky, take time to think about possible benefits (the outcomes that you will gain if things go as planned) as well as possible costs (the problems that could occur if things don’t go as planned).
