Cultivating a Sense of Adventure

Las Vegas kayak tours

Maybe you’ve been a self-described adventurer all your life, always questing about for the next mountain to climb or cave to “spelunk” or land-speed record to beat.

But if not, and even if the above exploits seem too extreme for you, it’s more than possible to nurture, or cultivate, a sense of adventure. Adventure, after all, isn’t purely synonymous with pushing yourself to the limits of your body—not by a long shot. In a deeper sense, it’s about opening yourself up to intimate—not necessarily fast-paced or death-defying—experiences with the world.

Your Personal Sense of Adventure

Adventure is really about exploration and open-mindedness. For some, that may mean skydiving or racecar-driving; for others, it might be an early-morning stroll down a novel path in the forest, or tracking the paw prints of a fox along a snowy road. No one can tell you what is or isn’t adventurous to you. What matters is how you feel inside when engaged in the activity or journey in question.
