Wonderush

There’s a feeling you get when you experience something for the first time. There are jittery nerves, a burst of curiosity, a rush of excitement. When was the last time you felt it? When was the last time you felt that all-consuming energy that makes you feel alive? If you’re slowly coming to the terrifying realisation that you can’t even answer the question because it was so long ago, it might be time to step out of your comfort zone.

We’re creatures of habit. We go to the same gym class every Thursday evening and hit the same local bar every Friday because we feel safe with what we know. Days slowly but surely start to blur in to one. In fact, we’ll bet you can’t even remember your journey in to work this morning because you’re so used to it. Founder of Wonderush Nelson Sivalingam stresses that ‘not only is this routine boring, but also it doesn’t give you the opportunity to grow’. We’re living a perpetual groundhog day. Not only is it not healthy, but it’s also not exciting.

Wonderush was created as a means to help shake off the dust that a monotonous daily routine has let settle. For a flat fee of just £29 a month members are able to experience hundreds of things to do across London, from salsa to stand up comedy, and yoga raves to ukulele classes. ‘Whether it’s developing a new perspective or learning a new thing about yourself, it doesn’t happen without you taking a new action’, Nelson reminds us. Go out of your way to put yourself in a moment that’s new to you and challenge yourself beyond what you know.

In order to help you make that first small step out of your comfort zone, let us introduce you to some of the most weird, wacky, and just plain wonderful activities you can experience in London this autumn!
