I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to try stargazing. Seeing the constellations that you could only see from the Northern Lights has always fascinated me. Sadly, the nearest observatory is in Alberta, Canada, over 300 miles away. But that doesn’t mean I can’t make the most of my location and look up at the stars on a clear night. Seeing as there aren’t any bright lights anywhere near the house, it’s easy enough to find peace and tranquility and get a little astronomy practice in.

Ballroom Dancing

Ballroom dancing has always fascinated me. I’ve watched old Edwardian dances with my great aunt and thought to myself; ‘why aren’t there more people dancing around?’. It’s easy to understand why there weren’t any social events other than weddings and parties back then. Everyone would have had to spend most of the night recovering from the exhausting dancing sessions!

But this was before Instagram, TikTok and other apps took off. Nowadays, ballroom dancing has become something of a trendy activity. Everyone and their mother has a social media account and has posted a series of #ootd (outfit of the day) videos dedicated to their favorite ballroom dancer. And for good reason! Social media accounts that promote positivity, honesty and good communication have achieved a level of popularity that can’t be denied. People are wanting to be a part of something that celebrates life rather than an entire evening of exhaustion, frustration and pain!

Walking The Dogs

If you think that walking your dogs is only good for their health, you’re mistaken. A lot of dog owners appreciate the therapeutic value of taking their dogs on a stroll. It does wonders for their mental health and reduces their anxiety. I’ve always wanted a dog and would love to have one some day. It would be fun to take the little guys (or gals) on walks or let them meet new people by letting them socialize with other dogs.

But that doesn’t mean I’ll get around to doing it any time soon. Life gets busy and hectic, which can’t be good for your dog’s health in any case. They need attention and stimulation to thrive. A lot of dogs love to be near water or other dogs and can be very friendly. If you take them on walks past other dogs, you might just ignite the interest of a potential puppy friend!

Scuba Diving

Speaking of health benefits, I’d like to think that getting in an underwater cave and spending a little time in a near-constant current would do wonders for your lungs. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll take a plunge into the clear waters of the Deep Blue and see what all the fuss is about. Until then, I’ll have to settle for looking up at the stars from the beach.

Sky Diving

Did you know that you could bungee jump off a plane and land in a desert? It’s not as crazy as it sounds. You’d probably be surprised how many people have that dream and take the opportunity to live it. While it might sound like a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you can get in touch with the Sky Diving Institute and make it happen. Or, at least, you can try out the touristy version!

The appeal of sky diving is all about adrenaline junkies. People who love the feeling of floating above the earth and being in complete control of their destiny. It might not be for the faint-hearted!

It’s no secret that people are looking for new ways to unwind. Many people feel that working through their problems one day at a time isn’t enough. Some want to find the ultimate escape, and that’s what makes sky diving so attractive. The ability to take a leap of faith and trust in a parachute is appealing. You might find that it’s the best way to deal with life’s challenges. Who knows? You might even feel inspired to write your own book about it!
