Making the most of life

By on October 16, 2019

Life is for living, have no doubt about that. To wake up to a new day should be exciting. I am a great believer in the fact that if you start the day with a positive attitude, then everything that follows will fall nicely into place. Just try getting out of bed with a groan and an attitude that tells you to crawl back under the duvet and hide from the world. For the next few hours you will find it hard to shrug off the gloom I know that many of us have boring jobs and a long hard day’s slog ahead of us, but who knows, maybe today is the day that you meet your Prince Charming, Miss Right or find a 20 note on the seat of the bus.

When it comes to having another birthday, children embrace the big day with open arms, excited at getting another year older, anticipating the birthday gifts that are about to be eagerly unwrapped. So why on earth don’t adults have the same way of looking at it? To me, an approaching birthday means that I can pat myself on the back because I have made it this far, when so many others have not. Some of us need a little shove when it comes to making the most of life. We need encouragement and persuasion to try out new things. We all feel comfortable in our routines, but every so often, it does us a great deal of good to burst free of our self-imposed chains and experiment with a new experience.

A great way to sample a new activity, sport or challenge is to enjoy one of the many experience days on offer and with so many to choose from, there are experience days to suit everyone’s level of excitement. From thrill-oriented sky dives to soothing and peaceful floatation tanks, you will find experience days for all those stick-in-the-muds who need something new to recharge their batteries.

There is nothing like a session of burning rubber to blow away the cobwebs and have you laughing at the thrill you get as the world rushes past your car window.

Driving experience days come in all shapes and sizes, and a Lamborghini Thrill Drive Experience never disappoints. Hit the road in this super stylish car, with 6 gears and sumptuous leather seats. The sound of its V10 engine will make you smile, as you manoeuvre this Lamborghini Gallardo E Gear. This is the car that belongs in your dreams, and you actually get to drive this little beauty.

Drive 4 laps before you receive your certificate, but make sure you bring your friends and family along to witness you having the time of your life and take photos of your beaming face as you whizz past them. If you have ever fancied yourself sitting in a military tank, now is your chance to see exactly what it is like. You can get behind the wheel of a Ferret and travel backwards at 50 mph, as well as crossing rough ground. You are going to be the envy of all your friends when they hear the tales you have to tell. This has to be more exciting than the usual weekend you have to look forward to.

As well as driving experience days there are more relaxing experience days for you to enjoy that will still involve you making the most of life.

Perhaps a day at Champney’s famous luxury health spa may be just what you need. It is amazing what a little pampering can do for you, and a relaxing body massage and facial will leave you feeling like a film star. With a wonderful manicure and pedicure you will be ready to deal with all those little unexpected surprises that life insists on throwing in your direction, and you will have beautiful hands with which to catch them.

If you are getting bored with your hobbies and interests and feel that there is so much more that you could be doing, try one of the many experience days that offer you the chance to have a go at something new and develop a new interest. If you like chocolate, and who does not, you have to try the Chocolate Making Workshop. Here you will discover the ins and outs of being a chocolatier, and even make your own chocolate creations. This could be the start of a brand new hobby, and a new and useful skill that could find you making delicious chocolates for friends or even as a small business. This is certainly food for thought, so try some of the fabulous experience days and enjoy your life.
