If you’re living a life that is quite boring, mundane and highly predictable then you have probably being taking life too seriously and you’re concentrating on the things that don’t really matter in the greater scheme of things. Maybe it’s time for some much-needed excitement in your life to take you away from the stresses and anxieties of climbing the corporate ladder and a bit closer to what is important in life – fun. Many of us are trying to introduce new things into our daily routine to shake things up a little and to bring some much-needed excitement back into our lives. As we get older, life can become quite predictable and while some people find comfort in that, others do not.
Maybe it’s time that you added something to your bucket list and rather than wait until retirement age to do it, you could do it now. I am talking about whale watching in Eden and many people have decided to add this special opportunity to their lives as well. If you haven’t experienced it before then you’re missing out on something quite special and once you see your first whale, you’re going to want to keep going back for more. Watching whales provides many benefits both physical and mental and we will cover just a couple of them here today.
– It reduces your stress levels – Many of us are constantly on the edge and we are worried about our jobs and our families as well. Our stress levels have gone through the roof and our doctors have been telling us for years that we need to slow down and take a step back from our careers. Nobody says that you have to stop taking your job seriously, would you really do need to add some ‘me time’ into the equation. People have reported after going whale watching lower stress and anxiety levels and a much deeper sense of satisfaction.
– An appreciation of life – We frequently forget how lucky that we are to be here on this earth and we are so caught up in living life that we forget about the important things like an appreciation for nature and life in general. When you see one of these majestic creatures swim by you while you’re sitting on a boat, it gives you a real sense of perspective and how lucky you are to be able to experience something like this. When you compare yourself to a mammal such as this, it provides you with some much-needed perspective.
If you want something exciting to be able to talk about with your friends and your family over the dinner table or over a beer at the barbecue, then whale watching should be at the top of your list of things to do.
