Have you always wanted to try a new sport, hobby or activity? Is there a book you’ve been longing to read, a location you desperately want to visit or even just a meal you are dying to cook? This is the time to do it. It’s Experience Week, meaning it’s time to do those things you’ve always to do. New experiences challenge and invigorate us, and they may just be the start to a lifelong interest. If you’re stuck for ideas, here are 6 ways different things you could try experiencing this week.
Sign up for a dance class, be it ballroom dancing with your partner or a solo style, such as jazz, tap or hip hop. This is a great way to exercise and meet new people at the same time.
Load up the car
Pack your bag and head off on a roadtrip this weekend. Wherever you are, there’s bound to be some amazing place within a few hours drive away. It could be a beach, another town, a native forest or otherwise. Have a look at your local map and start planning.
Thrown on an apron
We love cooking at MiNDFOOD and part of the reason is because there is always something new to learn. Whether you’re a whizz in the kitchen or only know a few classic recipes, there is guaranteed to be one that appeals to you. Make a trip to the supermarket and get cooking.
Horse riding is not only extremely fun, it promotes mindfulness and can help those with mental health issues as well. If it’s your first time riding, it might be a little scary, so visit a respected horse trekking business to make sure you have a safe experience. This is also a great way to see some of your country’s beautiful landscape!
Listen to the music
Always wanted to learn an instrument? Now is your chance! Sign yourself up for a guitar, piano or drums lesson – or otherwise. Remember that learning an instrument can take a while and be a frustrating process at times, but the rewards are incredible. Get your creative juices flowing.
Go sky high
If you’re really looking for a rush, get your heart pumping with a bungee jump or sky dive. The Nevis bungee in Queenstown is an especially thrilling option if you’re planning a Queenstown getaway.
