Wellness Adventure: Sky Diving
As a recurring series on the Spafinder Wellness 365 blog we are going to feature staffers and Spafinder insiders wellness adventures outside the office, because who better to inspire living well than the people working hard every day to make wellness dreams come true via Spafinder Gift Cards. (We’re hoping you will share your inspiring stories too – see below). Meet Lisa Thapa, our Marketing Services Manager, who handles marketing for our spa, wellness, and corporate business partners who took the plunge with a skydive.
Why Skydiving Now? It’s always been something I’ve wanted to do and I’ve always said I’d do it “someday.” I moved to Miami a little over a year ago from Minneapolis/St. Paul and I decided that for my birthday this year, I was going to go skydiving. I want to celebrate life!
How It Felt: It was an amazing experience! I would definitely do it again!! The free fall was the best! Your mind just clears and all you can do is focus on what is right in front of you (read here why this type of adrenaline rush has become a trend at spa’s). It was an amazing view and I took those moments to appreciate the beauty that surrounded me from 10,000 feet and all the way down! I felt so alive. [The exclamation points here say it all, we can’t resist!!
What it Meant: It gave me a new outlook on life, giving me a clearer perspective that you need to seize the day and to not put off things that you can do today.
