Well, it appears that you are confused about them, no?

I'm pretty routine in what I wear and what I eat, but I do like to add some variety once in a while, like trying a new recipe at home, or eating a place I've never been to before. Actually, I have a goal of doing something new at least once each week, which could mean almost anything:
  • exploring a park I've never been to before
  • hiking a new trail
  • visiting a new museum or local attraction (there are a lot of new places that are an easy day trip for me)
  • shopping at a store I've never been to before
  • etc, etc, etc.
I've read that doing new things strengthens brain cells and neural connections and might help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's (something which terrifies me).

This article: Stop the Decline: Dodging Dementia | Psychology Today says "Even ordinary activities done in a novel way, such as brushing your teeth with the opposite hand or taking a different route to work can enrich brain cell connections."

And this says about the same: Lifestyle Choices that May Prevent Alzheimer's Disease - ...

I think I'll always retain my boring sense of fashion though.

+1. I only wear jeans or shorts and t shirts, sweatshirts, flannel shirts. All in multiple sizes to cover fat and thin seasons. I generally like to eat the same foods. But I prefer to do new things and go to new places.

I looked dryer sheets up on google. I'd never heard of them, but then I never use a dryer, use solar system still.
