50 Unconventional Things to Do in Your Lifetime

Most bucket lists are filled with activities such as skydiving and visiting the Great Wall of China. But there are many fun and exciting things that are often overlooked. Sometimes it is because the activities are small, while other times it’s because they are strange or seem unfeasible to the average person. But who cares!

    I’ve accomplished many of these but still have more to go, like “42. Live without email, texting, Facebook, etc. for a week.” That’s a tough one! Especially when you’re in charge of a business like Lyved. But it really is great to take a break from all this tech; it lets your mind refresh (no tech pun intended). If you can’t do this one for a whole week yet, do it for dinner, each night, on Sundays, on Saturdays and Sundays, and then work your way up to a week when you’re on vacation or something (those Instagram vacation photos can wait!). You might end of developing a healthy habit rather than just checking this off your list one time.

    Another good one (that was actually on mine) was to be on a billboard…that was fun!

    That’s a great one! Definitely unconventional. Must have been fun to see yourself up there.

    51. Get your face on a billboard.

    Thanks for sharing!
