8 Reasons You Should Jump Out of a Plane at Least Once
Do you really need a reason to skydive?
Hmm, we think not, but we get that some people need a little convincing to do what is likely to be one of the best experiences of their lives, so here are eight solid reasons why you should take that leap of faith.
If you’ve ever been on a roller coaster, you’ll know how the cocktail of adrenalin, excitement, fear, joy, exhilaration and achievement feels. It’s absolutely incredible and with skydiving, you’ll experience all those sensations and more on a much bigger scale. It honestly is an extraordinary experience unlike anything you’ve done before.
Frank-N-Furter may have immortalised the words ‘I see you shiver with antici…pation’ in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, but there’s nothing horrifying about a skydive. But you are likely to shiver with delicious antici….pation at the thought of what lies ahead and the butterflies-in-your-tummy excitement is a feeling to savour and enjoy because it doesn’t come round all that often.
Enjoy the Ride
The plane ride to altitude is an amazing experience on its own. OK, there’s no silver service delivering drinks to your seat (in fact you’ll be sitting on the floor) and there’s actually not even a door between you and the wide blue yonder, but the amazing views, the reassuring banter with your instructor and the dizzy excitement you’ll feel as you climb thousands of feet above the earth will be unforgettable.
Conquer Your Fears
Fear can prevent us from moving forward in life – and the only way to deal with fear is to face it. If fear is holding you back, why not show it who’s boss by jumping out of a plane? If you can take that leap of faith despite any fear or anxiety you may be feeling about the prospect – you can do anything. Imagine how powerful that could be going forward in your life.
Crystal Clear Clarity
It’s not easy describing how freefall feels. In fact, most people say the experience is indescribable! But what it does give you is a profound sense of clarity, of calmness where time stands still and where you are able to be fully present in the moment.
Peace Be With You
After the exhilaration of freefall when your parachute has opened and it’s just you and your colourful canopy floating gently down to earth, you can feel completely at peace. With 3600 views of breathtaking scenery and the perfect simplicity of nature’s elements surrounding you, this section of your jump is so quiet and peaceful, it can feel therapeutic.
Sense of Gratitude
Once you’ve landed safely on terra firma and have had some time to digest what you’ve just achieved, you may feel a deep sense of gratitude for what you have in life. Skydiving can bring a new perspective, and often sparks people into a rethink of their priorities and what they value most in their lives.
Renewed Self-Belief and Self-Confidence
Let’s face it, jumping out of a plane takes huge courage and will. It’s a real achievement and if you can do that, you can take on any new challenge in life.
