10 things you should do at least once in your life

We know how short life is and how much we need to take full advantage of it. It is likely that you already have a list of things you absolutely want to do at least once, so today we bring 10 more ideas to you that could complement your plans.

Indeed, life goes by in the blink of an eye, so we must experience and give everything a go, from swimming with dolphins to climbing a mountain. Do not miss out on our 10 recommendations below.

1. Travel to see the Aurora Borealis 

This tip involves two objectives: travelling and witnessing one of the most beautiful natural scenes “The Aurora Borealis”. Did you know that what you see in an Aurora Borealis is a little part of the magnetic field of the planet? To see them you have to travel to the poles, either north or south but the experience is definitely worth the effort. 

  1. Learn another language 

This is something that besides giving you a competitive advantage in the workplace, it will bring you a new perspective on different cultures. For instance, if you are learning French and have the opportunity to travel to a francophone country, the experience of speaking the language gets so much better!

On the other hand, you can share your own culture with others in their native language. A new world of connections and understanding will be open up to you. 

  1. Learn to play an instrument 

Nothing more challenging for your motor and intellectual skills like learning to play a new instrument. It is a pleasant experience when you can replicate the rhythm of a song with a musical instrument. The best of all is that there is no age limit to try it! 

  1. Skydiving

Talking about extreme activities, can you imagine yourself jumping down from an airplane at approximately 7,000 feet? This is certainly the closest thing to flying. People who have lived this experience say it is something that definitely needs to be done at least once in your life. 

  1. Swim with dolphins

Some people underestimate this amazing marine mammal, however, when you are about to experience a swim with dolphins, you realize that they are truly great and impressive animals, which makes you appreciate this experience much more. Although it might seem a bit extreme, it is a very safe and magical activity, even children can swim with dolphins. 

  1. Run a marathon 

There are so many options to prepare and run a marathon that it seems absurd not to try it. Playing sports and working out provoke the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that produces pleasure, so imagine how you would feel at the end of a marathon! 

  1. Go diving 

Mexico has the advantage of having different beaches and reefs to explore. The most beautiful marine places are begging to be discovered by you, so if you plan to spend time in Cancun, do not miss the incredible opportunity to dive in the Mexican Caribbean.

  1. Know your country through a road trip 

If you live in Mexico, you will know that the country has a great diversity of ecosystems, its extension is so broad that it seems difficult to get to know the country completely. But, how about road tripping through the Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit or Baja California Sur on your next holiday? Only this way, you will see things that you couldn’t see when traveling by plane. Driving will allow you to stop where you really want and fully enjoy every moment of your journey. 

  1. Write your memories or keep a diary 

Apart from these formats that might sound cliché but are an escape from the routine and emotional catharsis, when was the last time you received a handwritten letter? You have to write! Write letters, write a journal, write a blog, write your life, write a story. If you've never done this before, you'll see how liberating it becomes. 

  1. Become a social worker 

There are so many good causes that are eager to have people dedicate a few hours a week to supporting different courses of action: animal shelters, nursing homes, orphanages, schools for adults, ecological causes, among many others. The satisfaction of helping or doing something for others is unique.

Are you ready to do something different?
