Bucket lists are something that can change how you live your life overnight, giving urgency to items that would otherwise sit in the back of your mind for the rest of your life.
Instead of wondering what it would be like to do any of these, or just never finding the right time to do them, these are three once-in-a-lifetime activities that everyone should try before they die and why it’s important to get out there and try them.
Why Create A Bucketlist of Activities?
Many bucket lists are a mix of achievements and activities: but the activities are more important. Getting out there and experiencing as much of the world as possible allows you to change how you see the world and how you interact with it.
There’s nothing like traveling the world or learning a profession in another country to help you realize that everyone experiences this world incredibly differently.
Travel Around the World in a Set Time
This used to be one of the most common bucket list ideas until recent years: but it needs to make a comeback! Traveling the world is easier and more affordable than ever before, and setting a limit on yourself to achieve it means that you can ensure that you make it happen.
This extended travel vacation ensures that you see as much that the world has to offer as possible and that you can brag that you’ve been all around the world and made it back home.
Learn a New Skill in a Profession In Another Country
One of the best things to do to widen your worldview is to learn a new profession in a country that you don’t live in or come from. So this could mean learning how to fish in the Philippines or how to make pasta in Italy.
Learning from professionals who have done this for generations allows you to absorb some of their wealth of knowledge and take in what it means to live where they live. This is an awesome way to get to know the world better and try some things you wouldn’t have otherwise.
Take Part in a Triathlon or Marathon
Putting our bodies to the test is vital to seeing how far we can go. If you want a goal that might take you years to achieve and can be mostly free instead of traveling, practicing to get into a triathlon or marathon can give you the chance to put your body to the test.
This exciting and challenging bucket list idea can leave you thrilled about upcoming years and give you a goal to work towards that you might not have found otherwise. Just make sure that you don’t push yourself too hard and enjoy the process!
