Do you fancy yourself an adventurous person? Trying new things can help you expand your horizons and give you experiences that you can help shape you into a better person! In this week’s Virginia Square Towers Blog, we’ve got a short list of things we think you should try in the new year. We understand that some of the more adventurous readers may have already tried these suggestions, so if you have, leave us a comment of something new that you would like to try in 2019!


Though humans weren’t meant to fly the way birds do, it shouldn’t stop you from replicating that feeling. Skydiving is one of the ways that humans can experience the same experience being airborne or free-falling. Adrenaline junkies flock to skydiving for the thrill it provides, which makes it the perfect adventurous thing to do in the new year! Don’t worry though, your first time skydiving will be with someone who knows what they’re doing!


One thing you can try in the new year is taking care of your body. Yoga is a fun way to do just that. One thing to keep in mind is that certain types of yoga are not only relaxing at times, but also aid you in flexibility, strength, and improves your posture. It’s an exercise, so don’t be alarmed when you end up being sore after a yoga session!


Take this new year as your opportunity to travel the world! If you haven’t left the continental United States, we recommend doing so. There are plenty of places you can choose as your destination, so regardless of where you wish to go, you’ll be able to enjoy the beauty, culture, and peoples of those destinations.
