One great little tradition that you can start for yourself is to take little walk-breaks during the day at work. A 15 minute walk once or twice a day will help you stay alert and productive, and you might be surprised what you find out there.
When you do find something cool, it will have an extra naughty satisfaction for you. Even if its just a neat little restaurant that you might have otherwise overlooked, you will get a little perk knowing you found it while you were supposed to be at your desk working.
The possibilities are endless. For example, you might find ruins from generations past oddly placed in a forgotten corner of your city. Perhaps you'll find an old homestead like this one in Austin, TX, hidden in the trees only minutes from your desk ... complete with a doorway that opens into a poorly designed cellar and a now collapsed roof. You might even get lucky and happen across some retired guy just hanging out and enjoying the serenity of your new discovery. He might be like your tour guide at some Mayan temple site, pointing out angels carved into stones by some homeless guy. Hey, stranger things have happened.
Just don't venture too far into your new discoveries. Else, you might catch me skinny dippin' in my secret garden.
