Here’s my very own adrenaline-fuelled adventures. I’m a single mum, almost 40 (but age is just a number, right?) and after separating from my ex-husband three years ago, I made a promise to myself to embrace every moment and create unforgettable memories. So, I compiled a bucket list of activities and dived right in!
Secret Cinema? Check! I really did have ‘The time of my life’ as I immersed myself in the enchanting world of Dirty Dancing, one of my all time favourite films. I’ve indulged in wellness festivals, conquered rock climbing walls, danced on the Coyote Ugly bar in London (cue the wild memories) and even tested my skills on the Ninja Warrior course. Let’s just say I’ve had some hilarious wipeouts along the way, but that’s part of the fun!
But the ultimate adrenaline rush came from Snowbombing, a ski festival in Mayrhofen, Austria. Picture this: four days of live music, forest stage festivals, raves, comedy, snow sports (and even encountering a few snow angels). Experiencing it all with my best friend, Sarah, was pure magic. The highlight? Riding the chair lift and feeling like I was on top of the world, taking in the breathtaking snowy mountain backdrop. Absolute bliss!
Now I’ve caught the ski bug, and next year, Sarah and I are already planning our next adventure: Tomorrowland Winter. Imagine 100 artists playing against the backdrop of the awe-inspiring snowy alps at a staggering 3300m! And if Sigma could perform a set there, I might just explode with excitement!
Sigma were my inspiration to write this article. Their song “Adrenaline Rush” is my ultimate summer anthem and I can’t help but be in awe of their own adrenaline rush journey. They recently asked fans to nominate the most thrill seeking activity and within the week they delivered by jumping out of a plane.
The song simply relates because in my free time I’m always seeking my next adventure. This weekend, it’s white water rafting – lets hope I don’t fall in. LOL
How do you find your Adrenaline rush?
As well as dating ideas, Be dating beautiful was born to bring readers inspiration on self love. Having struggled in my life with mental health, I’ve learnt how incredibly important quality ‘me time’ really is.
My hope is that this article will help empower you to prioritise your own mental health and discover the things in life that bring you pure joy.
I reset my prioritises recently, having realised I was spending a ridiculous amount of time on dating apps seeking my next match. I’ve shifted my focus to prioritise what makes me happy. And guess what? It has made all the difference! I make time for myself, nurturing my mental well-being and indulging in activities that bring me sheer bliss.
Several times a week, you’ll find me lacing up my running shoes and hitting the pavement. Those runs are my sanctuary, where I can let go of any stress and reconnect with my inner self. It’s amazing how much clarity a good jog can bring. I’ve even got my son into it…we started in May with the 2km junior park runs and are now up to running 3.5km a couple of evenings a week. The photo below shows us getting caught in a storm last week – it was pretty exhilarating.
But it’s not just about running; it’s about finding those activities that make your heart sing. For me, it’s belting out “Adrenaline Rush” in the car with Sarah as we embark on a weekly ski sessions at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead. That place, surrounded by snow and laughter, is my happy place.
So what am I hoping you take away from this?
The importance of taking care of yourself and doing things that truly light up your soul. Whether it’s pursuing your passions, indulging in self-care activities, or spending quality time with loved ones. Happiness should be the driving force behind your choices.
It’s a liberating feeling to let go of societal pressures and expectations and embrace the things that bring you genuine happiness. By doing what makes you happy, you’ll discover a new level of fulfillment and contentment in life.
So now all that is left to do is find your next Adrenaline rush!
