Letting Go of the Fear to Try New things

18 January 2023

At the start of every new year, we long for new things.

There is this strong desire to do something exciting, something new, something that can make us better and happier than last year.

We make a list of our resolutions, and habits that we like to kill and change with good ones. There are also others who make a list of what new things they want to do.

Sadly, the New year resolutions or the new activities they want to try never come to fruition. New Year resolutions are often hard to maintain because they're attached to a calendar date and once January 1 has been long gone, people forget about their resolutions and don't have the energy anymore to do them. There are obviously other reasons but we'd like to focus on the latter.

People want to do new things but they are scared. They are scared to leave their comfort zones. They are scared of growth, having being in the safe zone for the longest time. They are scared that they might not be good at the thing that they want to try. They are scared that they might be too old. They are scared that their gender might not be the right fit. They are scared that other people would judge them.

There are many other reasons such as lack of resources (time, money) or accessibility of the activity in their place of residence. It's one story to clear out these barricades. But if it is just fear that's holding you back, then you can by all means drop it and try that one new activity you've always wanted to try.

What's the worst that can happen? People will laugh at you? Let them. They don't matter. People would talk about you behind your back? It may affect your mental health, yes, but only if you give power to their words.

More importantly, you're doing this for yourself and not for others. Their opinion should not matter at all because it's your life to live and not theirs.

Once you've gotten over the fear, the next step is to actually do the new experience that you are craving for. You would need tools to guide you with that. We've listed down some ergonomic pieces from FlexiSpot that can help propel you to do that dream of yours:

Sewing Standing Desk ES9W

Have you always had a penchant for clothes? If you've heard about the evils of fast fashion, you may want to consider creating your own clothes. If you've always wanted to try it out, having a sewing standing desk will help the experience be a lot more fun, comfortable, and convenient.

The ES9W has the advantage that the sewing platform has independent adjustment settings. It has a knob that the user can turn to raise or lower the workstation by five steps. It can support up to 26 pounds of weight, which is just enough to support the weight of a typical electric sewing machine.

The workstation is also very roomy since in addition to the platform for the sewing machine, there is also a removable side table that is 9" by 24" in size that can be added to the table that is already 43" by 24".

The desk structure is composed of high-grade steel, so I know I don't have to be concerned about scratching or staining it. Because of its two-state legs, it is assured to be stable even at the maximum adjustment point, and transitions should be seamless and fluid during the day.

Height Adjustable Drafting Table

Maybe you've always wanted to be a painter or sketcher but you don't think you have the talent for it. Let this be the year that you finally unlock that potential. Flexispot has invented this drafting table to help artists stay inspired, motivated, and energized.

It has a height-programmable control panel that is equipped with not only up and down buttons but also four memory customizable presets.

The tabletop can be tilted within 0° to 40° to cater to different tasks---whether you're working, writing, reading, or drawing. As with most of Flexispot's desk products, this table comes with a safety ledge stopper that prevents devices and other desk items from sliding off its surface. Moreover, this drafting table has an expandable desktop that provides an extra 9.8" space. If not needed, it can easily be folded, especially in a small area where there is not ample space, to begin with. The table has a built-in, spacious pull-out drawer for storage that keeps one's belongings out of sight and makes sure the desk is clutter-free.

Studio Standing Desk ESD101

Or perhaps you're a musician who has always wanted to create your own studio-quality music in the comfort of your home?

This is exactly what this standing desk from FlexiSpot can help you with. You can have that one table for your keyboard, speakers, desktop, amplifier, etc.

It has an 88 keyboard tray and a spacious working surface with a 6U rack space (for the amplifier and equalizer) and a large top-shelf (for two display monitors and speaker monitors). It also comes with a programmable controller that allows you to shift from sitting to standing while making your music. Moreover, it has an enhanced anti-collision feature that ensures that all your expensive and heavy equipment is safe during the movement of the desk. You can also use it as a gaming desk, a DJ table, or a podcast desk when you're not making music.

Final Word

Did you know that Grandma Moses did not start painting until she was 80 years old? Google her now and you'll see so many of her iconic paintings. Famous choreographer Kyle Hanagami only started dancing when he was 18 years old, way older than the veteran dancers that we know of. So many people find things to do at any age so if you feel that time is not on your side, just look at how bravely these people chose to do what they want without caring about what other people might think.
