When did you last try something new?
Research shows that those who keep active (and mentally active) are much more likely to lead happier lives (plus apparently have a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s and all sorts of horrible other stuff) – and I’m all for that!
So isn’t it about time that we all tried out a new experience to keep us alert? Even better, get a group of friends to share it with you and have a lot of extra fun along the way.
In the Peak District near Party Houses, we are fortunate to have many such opportunities on our doorstep. Here are a few ideas…..
If you want a real thrill, but without too much physical exertion, get yourself up in the air with a helicopter flight following the Dambuster’s training routes over Ladybower. Or, if you prefer more physical participation, why not have a go at hang gliding or rock climbing? For those who prefer to have their feet closer to the ground – have you ridden a bike through the tunnels of the Monsal Valley, ridden a horse, or tried out a Segway?
Of course, not everything has to be about adventure! Learning a new skill is very rewarding too and something you can take with you to develop further. One of my favourite skills is the art of chocolate making – a passion that first began on a one-day course (and it makes you very, very popular with your mates!). Maybe you’ve always wanted to spend a day in a brewery or learn how to dry stone walls, play Roulette, or make some balloon animals to impress the children in your life.
My advice is – go for it! There are lots and lots of ideas on www.partyhousesstg.wpengine.com. So combine a great weekend away with friends or family, with memory-making experiences. And when you go back to work the following week, just think how satisfying your answer will be to ‘What did you do at the weekend?’
