This goes without saying, if you haven’t travelled around the world, you’ve done nothing! Explore new places, learn about their language and culture, try new cuisines: write about them, make your personal vlogs for travel memories. Buy yourself a scratch-off world map and get started!

6. Learn a mind bending game

Find a game that requires thinking and strategy and master it. Chess is one classic game of strategy you could learn. Apart from that, there’s Mahjong, Carrom, Mancala and so much more. Such games help you improve with your thinking skills and prepare you to be challenged anytime.

7. Learn sign language

Just like any other language, learning sign language is great for the brain. It enhances cognition and abstract thinking. This is the best you could do to be able to connect to someone in need. Sign language will always be helpful in some way or the other. It’s great to be able to convey your thoughts with signs, as simple as being hungry or thirsty. And thanks to the Internet, learning sign language is easier than ever!

8. Learn a new form of dance

Dancing is a great skill to learn. It helps build self confidence and social skills too. Ballroom dancing should be top priority. Latin dancing such as Jive or Cha Cha Cha which is of Cuban origin are forms of dances one must know for social dance events. There’s no feeling better than knowing how to dance the right way at a party. There’s a lot of dance classes and online tutorials to choose from.

9. Help someone in need

If you’re financially independent, sponsor for a kid in need. Or there’s other ways to make them smile. Visit an orphanage or old age home and have close interactions on a monthly or yearly basis. You could accompany a social work group or take your friends along, or even go solo! There is nothing better than making someone’s day.

There is so much more than these nine things that you could try. You could pick stuff you wish to do and write them down in your bucket list, because in the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
