Adding variety with the same stuff (music)

This last weekend I had less than ideal data speeds on my phone so streaming tubes through Pandora wasn’t an option. I only had a few songs on my phone and wanted something different. Ended up finding the pitch and speed controls on the Android music player and it fit the bill.

Find it at:
Music library (First screen of the app) > ellipsis button > Settings > Audio Effects > Pitch and Speed.

So changing the speed or tone of music or choosing or an activity in life will give some variety without requiring something completely new.

Hope that helps folks out.

Getting out of a rut – Life Engagement

Wanted to post some ideas for others (and myself included. I benefit from the advice too) and also an audio podcast that’s short on the topic that I had made. It’s basic advice, nothing groundbreaking :), but may help you out if you’re in this situation (otherwise, why are you reading this post, huh? 😉 ).

If you’re in a low point in your life and aren’t finding many things exciting, it’s time to try a new hobby, a new programming language, new comrades, new workout routine, new sights, or possibly even a new job (obviously exercise caution on that one).

An alternative to all of that is also to develop deeper appreciation for what you do have and come to love those things even more – that’s fine too! Just as long as something is advancing you and creating growth/happiness/success in your life.

It can be a breath of fresh air into your life and helps spark and reinvigorate you for the future. Don’t take these words for it though, try it for yourself. ‘Til next time.
