What does it mean to live like you’re dying? Sky diving. Rocky Mountain climbing. Bull riding. Snorkeling. Horseback riding. Romantic dinners. It’s all there. It’s all within reach. Memories are funny. If you don’t make any, you don’t have anything to remember when it’s too late to do all of these things.
No one should have to wait until they’re told that they’re dying to live a good life. Often, once you get that kind of news, it’s already too late. You don’t have the energy. You don’t have the ability. Why should you wait?
Live like you’re dying. It’s some of the best advice that Tim McGraw ever gave. He’s not the only one giving out advice like that, either.
So, we’ve got a question to ask you. How are you going to live like you’re dying? Think about it. If you were told that you have a year left, how are you going to spend it? What kinds of memories are you going to fill your mind with so that you can leave your life behind with a smile on your face?
Live an Adrenaline-Filled Life
There’s something you might not know about adrenaline. It’s packed with health benefits. If you’ve stayed clear of adrenaline-filled activities because you think it’s only for people with a death wish, think again. Most adrenaline-junkies are doing what they’re doing in Texas, Minnesota, and everywhere else because of the incredible health effects.
Living life with more adrenaline can help you with your pain resistance. That instant flood of hormone can block pain so that you can feel almost superhuman.
It’s also capable of enriching your blood and helping to distribute it all over your body. Blood vessels will contract as the adrenaline flows through your system. It will redirect the blood to all of the major muscle groups.
Oh, and it’s going to help your brain, too. As the hormone pumps through your brain, it will become oxygenated, engaged, and laser-focused. If you’ve ever noticed how some people are more efficient at cognitive tasks, you may want to ask them how they spend their free time. They’re likely driving motorbikes, skiing, hang gliding, or doing something else that is filling them to the brim with adrenaline.
When you want to live like you’re dying, it could end up saving your life. Adrenaline is going to help you boost your immune system and even slow the aging process down a bit. When you’re on high alert during an adrenaline-filled activity, you’re going to boost your immune system. The fight or flight attack response will be at its highest, and it can help you to increase antioxidants circulating in your body and help you to fight off infections.
Wow. And here you thought adrenaline-junkies were just there for the fun. If you’re not out there living life to the fullest, you might want to rethink your decisions. It could be what your body is craving. Life’s too stressful not to enjoy a break now and again.

So, how are you going to live your life?
Live a Life of No Regrets
Regret is a dangerous thing. You don’t want to sit back a year or decade from now and regret not doing all of the things you wanted to do. A great life is one where you get to do what you want to do instead of thinking about it all.
Save up your money for that trip you have been dreaming about. Take risks. Fall in love. Say you’re sorry. Be the better man. Be the better human being. And live like you’re dying every day of the week, every week of the year. It’ll make for a better life.
From Minnesota to Texas, people are living sweeter, happier lives. They’re investing in RVs to drive across the country, ATVs to explore the backcountry, and even boats to explore the seven seas.

It also makes it easier to get the adrenaline racing and create more memorable stories.
