Adrenaline junkies. We all know at least one. An adrenaline junkie is someone who revels in the adrenaline rush that comes hand in hand with the release of adrenaline into their bloodstream. Adrenaline is released when you’re in some form of danger and is supposed to activate your fight or flight instinct, encouraging blood to pump around your body faster, your breathing speeds up, and endorphins are released en mass, stimulating the pleasure centers in your pituitary gland. If this sounds good to you, perhaps it’s time to start succumbing to your inner adrenaline junkie. Here are a few activities to get you started off.
Skydiving is one of the first activities that will spring to your mind when people talk about achieving an intense adrenaline rush. After all, there aren’t many more daring actions than voluntarily jumping from a plane. While nerves may run high as you take to the skies, people often say that they experience a state of euphoria and tranquility as they descend to the ground. So, consider conquering your fears. If you want an extra feel good addition, try raising money to make the leap. You can then donate this to a good cause.
