Nose/forehead pets, better than petting their backs
I reach my hand out for a rabbit to look at, sniff it before trying to pet or pick them up

Sometimes rabbits get "stuck" if they're put somewhere new. They won't venture out and explore, they will stay put where you set them seemingly indefinitely.
Example: You bring their carrier into a new room, open it, and they never come out. Your rabbit may be "stuck".
Example: You set your rabbit in their new litter box, and they never hop out of it. Your rabbit may be "stuck". (I did this with a rabbit recently in my living room and then left the house. He was still there 6 hours later.)
Example: You put your rabbit on your bed for the first time, and he won't jump down. Your rabbit may be stuck.
To fix a stuck rabbit, pick him up and place him down a little away from where he is stuck, but close enough that he can still see where he was stuck (else he might just get stuck again). This will kick-start him to start exploring & mapping out the new area.
This won't work if your rabbit is frozen in terror.
