In adulthood, we all need routine, it might be boring but it allows us to stay healthy and get our daily tasks and chores done. But while getting up at the same time each day, working the same hours, eating at the same times and going to bed at the same time each night is good for staying organized and keeping your circadian rhythm in check- it can be boring! Routine can sometimes mean ‘rut’ and there’s one thing being organized and another feeling like you’re living in groundhog day. In order to keep life interesting, its crucial to have hobbies you enjoy, and activities that you find exciting. If you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie then you want to have hobbies that are exhilarating and take your breath away even if you only do them on occasion. Looking for ideas? Here are a few you might want to consider!
Skydiving is an adrenaline thrill like no other, if you have the guts to jump from a plane and free fall with a parachute you will be rewarded with the biggest dopamine rush! It might not be something you do every weekend but once in a while if you’re after something exciting then this could well be it. Bungee jumping is another alternative and can be less expensive.
Whether it’s drifting, drag racing, board racing or any other form of car racing this can be a great way to get your adrenaline hit. If you don’t already have a suitable car check out experiences where you can hire a vehicle along with track time or lessons. Or look into things like Onewheel reviews and find the right activity for you.
Whether it’s out in the mountains or on a local climbing wall, rock climbing is incredible exercise and you get the adrenaline rush of scaling heights. There are lots of health and safety considerations to look into before going out on your own, so join a club as a beginner and go from there. That way you can learn from scratch and do things safely.
If you’re fascinated by the mysteries that lie beneath the ocean’s surface, scuba diving is the gateway to a whole new world. You’ll feel an incredible sense of awe and wonder as the tranquillity and weightlessness of being underwater create an otherworldly experience. There are sometimes indoor deep pools that are created specifically for scuba divers so even if you’re not close to a coast it’s worth doing some googling to see whats available.
For the speed enthusiasts and nature lovers, mountain biking is a great option. It’s pretty accessible, once you have your bike you’re good to go. The best mountain biking trails are likely to be places like mountains and countryside but even cities will have bike trails and areas you can go and check out. Again its incredible exercise and could be just what you need for a weekly dopamine boost. So saddle up, pedal hard, and let the trails become your playground!
