Often life’s daily routine can get in the way of us doing what we really want to do. We get caught up with work, studying and commitments, and it becomes easy to let days pass without taking much thought for your own desires. Now is the time to force yourself out of your comfort zone and explore what is outside your day-to-day reality. It’s the New Year – why not start your bucket list? We’ve got just the things to put on it…
Travel the world
If you want to open your eyes to new cultures, make friendships or experience the wonders of the world – travelling is the answer for you. Offering a change of scenery from boring meetings and conference calls, travelling allows you to visit an endless amount of places that you will never forget.
Learn a new language
Learning a new language may seem like a hard task, but those who have done it say it is completely worth it. Speaking a second language will enrich your life by opening a world of job opportunities, allow you to communicate with broader networks and transform your travel experiences.
Run a marathon
Running a marathon is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, events that you could experience. The physical and mental challenges will help you learn a lot about yourself and your participation can be doubly rewarding if you are fundraising for charity.
Re-connect with old friends and family
As previously mentioned, the busy bustle of everyday life can often become your reality. Take a step back and think about those who you consider your nearest and dearest. When was the last time you spoke to them? The last time you met up? Reach out to those who you hold dear and re-connect with past friends, for old time’s sake.
Try an extreme sport
Extreme sports offer an immense experience, despite often only lasting for a few minutes. Why not push your limits and try out rock climbing, skydiving or extreme skiing? The thrill of these risk-taking activities can often make the most significant memories.
Conquer your biggest fear
We all have fears. Fear of heights, fear of spiders, and fear of rejection – the list is endless. Fears are a waste of energy and they limit your full potential. However, they can be overcome. Be it climbing a mountain or getting on that plane, it is time to let go of what is holding you back and allow yourself to grow.
Ride a hot air balloon
It’s often easy to take your surroundings for granted when you see them every single day. However, a hot air balloon ride is an unforgettable flying experience like no other. It offers you a birds-eye view, and you will see the world below you in a whole new way and appreciate your surroundings.
