10 Things To Do At Least Once In Life

10 Things To Do At Least Once In Life

We all have several things at the back of our mind; the ones that we plan to do some day in our life. But, most of the times, these things get sidetracked while we are busy running the rat race to attain success.

But hey, you don’t always have to be functioning like a timed robot to become successful in life. In fact, success isn’t about how much money you have in your bank account. It is about how many memories you have made all your life, how many moments you have spent smiling and how much you have wished for people around you to be happy.

And, while the rat race is definitely never going to end, here are 10 things that you must do at least once in life, leaving aside that typical busy schedule for a while.

1. Help someone without any expectation

Helping someone is the best thing you can do in your life! Be it a friend, family or simply a stranger, go ahead and help someone knowing that they cannot help you back. We promise you’ll have a peaceful sleep that night.

2. Take a solo trip

We all have traveled places with our family and friends and they have undoubtedly been enjoyable. But a solo trip will give you an experience of a lifetime! You will learn to be on your own, take decisions on your own, connect with strangers and spend time with yourself. Bliss!

3. Visit an orphanage

We are blessed to have parents who have catered to our every wish and never let us down. But, not all are that fortunate! And, while most of the times you are rude to your parents, a visit to an orphanage will teach you what it means to have a family!

4. Listen to your heart

Most of us have been doing things against our heart the whole life. How many of you have joined courses that you never wished to do but your parents did? How many of you never wanted to work in a typical IT firm but were forced to? Forget everything guys and listen to your heart! Do what you wish to do – attend a concert, take a trip or even switch your career. It might be a bit late but it is never too late to chase your dreams!

5. Live alone

Living alone will teach you a lot more than any school, college, teacher or books can! At least once in a life, live alone, be it for a small period of time. It will not only teach you the importance of your family but also make you independent and bold.

6. Try that dangerous adventure sport you always had on mind

We all have fascinations about adventures. Admit it, all of us have always wanted to try some adventure sport we saw in a movie. Para gliding, free fall, bungee jumping and what not? Why not give it a try, guys?

7. Donate money

Donating money is the best way to call for a peaceful sleep. Not all are blessed with finances that are enough to fill their stomach every day. So, once in a while, or at least once in life, donate money to the needy and experience the satisfaction! Thank us later!

8. Pursue your hobby

You may have always loved writing, painting, singing and what not! But, with the course of time, it became difficult to pursue these hobbies. But hey, it is what you love and you must certainly take up. Try expressing yourself through writing, music, painting or any of your hobbies and tell us about the happiness.

9. Parent a child

No, we are not asking you to get married and have a child if you don’t wish to marry at all. You may adopt a child or even baby-sit one for some time or a few days. A child will teach you to enjoy the smallest things of life and get that lost smile on your face back.

10. Live a day like there’s no tomorrow

Once in a while, take a day off from work, travel, shop, eat, drink, party, enjoy, escape to the woods, sit in the lap of nature, sing, dance and do everything you ever wished for! Live an entire day like there wouldn’t be tomorrow. Yeah, you need that therapy!
