People today are so caught up in their busy lives—their phones are constantly buzzing and there are always places to be and people to see. All of this has led to many losing the natural instinct to go on an adventure. In a world that practically celebrates the busy culture, adventures have become a rarity that people should revive.
Wired for Adventure
Adventures relieve you from stress by improving your mood. The risk associated with activities like bungee jumping, riding motorcycle rentals, and zip lining release certain brain chemicals, including adrenaline, endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. These are “happy chemicals” that trigger positive and euphoric emotions.
The body produces dopamine to help you accomplish a challenge; adrenaline to enable you to take action in the midst of danger; endorphins to keep your endurance. The combination of these chemicals make you feel good, which is why they are addicting—which is why you should really make an effort to go on more adventures despite your busy schedule.
Destination for Thrills
Take a break from the things that stress you out on a daily basis and satisfy your craving for adrenaline rush. The best destination for this is none other than the Philippines. This tropical archipelago will never disappoint as the scenery and friendly people will surely contribute positivity to your adventure.
One of the most dynamic outdoor adventure activities is motor biking. Motorcycle rent in the Philippines is generally cheap; it often comes in packages, so you won’t have to worry about gear and guides. Motorcycle rides will take you places to witness wonderful views and explore off the road whenever, wherever you want.
Try mountain biking or maybe go on a ride in the evening to take things up a notch. The best destination for nighttime biking is Intramuros. At night, the old Spanish town lights up and takes on a completely new personality. Try other biking trails as well. La Mesa Dam is a good one if you want to reconnect with nature and ride on challenging terrains.
Living life to the fullest shouldn’t be a luxury; it should be a way of life. Take time off from your busy life, put down your smartphone, and just do it—go on an adventure.
