For some, living a life filled with adventure sounds…well, kinda wild. However, research overwhelmingly concludes that adventure has a range of health and wellness benefits. Of course, there’s that instant hit of dopamine that jumping out of a perfectly good plane or driving a V8 fuelled car through a chicane will provide, however, making adventure a part of your life could you really be the making of a happier, healthier and more balanced version of you. And we’re sure you’re already pretty amazing!

When we say “adventure”, there’s a whole spectrum of nature and rev-head based activities on offer. Have a little read below and see if there’s anything that floats your boat.

Take The Plunge With Someone New

No need to adjust your mask, yes that is a real life seal giving you your very first underwater seal smooch. And if swimming with these beautiful, playful and highly intelligent creatures doesn’t feel amazing…well, you’d be in the minority, because 94% of people said that adventurous pursuits had benefited them. You could say this is one activity that’s sealed with a kiss. Sorry…couldn’t resist.

It’s Time To Let Go

We’re all for a good statistic. And 56% of adventurers reevaluating their fears is a compelling number. But in a plane with the doors open at 5000 feet, the only numbers that matter are 3-2-1 go! Whether you’re doing your first or your fiftieth jump, there’s something indescribable about skydiving – but it’s about as liberating as it gets.

Surfers Know the Feeling

Surfers know the feeling. Being out on the water, catching bigger waves than you have before, testing your physical fitness, and your balance. No two days are the same, but the feeling is. Happiness, accomplishment, confidence (depending on the day), all continually elevated in people who tackle the unknown. As the world’s largest island (we know, technically we’re not an island!) coastline and waves are in plentiful supply. Want to find out what this feeling is? Well then, you should learn to surf.

Make Sure You’re Firing On All Cylinders

They call it “redlining”….it’s when there’s just too many revs for an engine to handle. And for a lot of people, many things in daily life can be a redlining type scenario. So, you might be surprised to know that 55% of people who undertook adventures said they were better equipped to handle stressful situations. That’s a pretty handy life skill. So the next time you’re attempting that tricky reverse park with an impatient audience or pulling off a few doughnuts for your mates…no problem!

You’re Not Gonna Need A Bigger Boat. 
You’re Not Gonna Need A Bigger Boat. 
 

The first time you step into a jet-boat your first thought will be, “I hope this jacket is waterproof”. These jet-propelled speed machines rip around channels in as little as 3 feet of water, and remember, speed on the water feels up to 3 times faster than on land. So this feels fast. Speaking of 3, did you know that 3 in 5 people said they couldn’t imagine a life without adventure? 3 minutes on a jet-boat and you’ll understand why.
