9 Enriching Things to Do While You're Young and Single

One of the best things about being young is that your body is naturally prepared for all kinds of challenges, even if you do not regularly work out. Plus, you still don't have as many lifetime attachments and responsibilities to consider. If you’re not married and have children, your earnings are there solely for your personal use.

Therefore, while you're still young and before serious responsibilities pile up in your life, make the most out of the freedom you have. Here are some suggestions for enriching pursuits perfect while you're young and single.

1. Travel alone

Traveling alone is one of the scariest things to do for young people that usually turns out to be an enriching and outstanding experience. Exploring an unfamiliar place alone is daunting, but it can help you discover many things about yourself, such as how effectively you can deal with problems or complications, and your ability to enjoy things on your own.

If you wish to learn how independent you can be, this is one item you need to include in your bucket list as a young and single person.

2. Live abroad
If an opportunity to live abroad presents itself, such as a university exchange program or a job relocation, grab it. This is an easier decision to make while you're young and single, you can just pack up, temporarily leave everything behind, and grow so much as a person.

Immerse yourself in a different culture, make new friends, learn from a variety of experiences, and gain a fresh perspective of life.

3. Invest in your health
While you're young and your income is all yours, it's smart to invest in your physical wellbeing. This will pay off when you're older. Enroll in fitness programs, or hire a personal trainer, find a diet or eating lifestyle that ultimately works for you. 

Wellness experts say that taking great care of your body while you're young can prevent the onset of serious health problems brought about by aging, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, certain cancers, cardiovascular disease and even diabetes.

It's vital to include skin health, as well. Establish a skincare routine while you're young and treat yourself to professional treatments. This will delay signs of aging and keep you looking youthful for a long time.

4. Celebrate your birthday in a grand way
Make your birthdays eventful and memorable. If you are financially comfortable, do not hesitate to splurge on your birthday celebration and score some once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

For example, why not take a couple of your best friends, your parents, or partner on a seaplane tour? If you're from Dubai or Abu Dhabi, you can take advantage of the Ras Al Khaimah tour package, which will take you from Ras Al Khaimah to Dubai. 

This exciting 45-minute aerial tour will treat you and your guests to stunning views of Marjan Island and the coasts leading to the City of Gold. And once you get to Dubai, you all can spend the rest of the day at a luxury resort, and have your birthday meal. You’ll have private transportation to take you back to Ras Al Khaimah.

5. See your favorite artist perform live
If you are a big fan of a particular artist, consider making it your goal to see them live. This will make for a fantastic memory and story to tell when you're older and have kids.

A concert, a theater performance, a movie screening — whichever of these allows you to see your favorite singer or actor in person, get tickets and gift yourself with this extraordinary live event experience.

6. Start a business
This is one of the top recommendations of successful people for the younger generation: start a business. Why? Again, there are fewer risks to face in doing so while you're young and single. Also, launching a business while you're young can teach you valuable lessons that are beneficial to know before you get married, purchase a house, and make other investments.

Startup experts also share that being young is an advantage in starting an enterprise. One, you have the flexibility to adapt to unfamiliar environments. Two, you have physical strength, enthusiasm for new things, creativity, and are naturally more idealistic. And three, the younger you are as a business owner, the better you are usually at tolerating risks and bouncing from setbacks.

7. Conquer a fear
Whatever fear you may have, be it a fear of heights or performing in front of a large crowd or riding a plane, attempt to overcome it while you're young. Doing so will not require much preparation while in your twenties or early thirties. Delaying doing it until you're in your forties will make it more difficult, as you may already have a few health issues to consider or which will prevent you from doing anything too adventurous.

8. Pursue a childhood dream
You can look into the future with the fewest regrets if you take the time during your young adult years to go for your childhood dreams. 

Say, you’ve always wanted to own a pretty bakeshop as a kid, work toward this dream by taking baking courses during your days off from work. Or, sign up for a barre class if you, like a lot of little girls, wanted to become a ballet dancer. You may not have the chance to become a famous ballerina, but taking a barre class will help keep you fit and looking young.

Pursuing your childhood dreams will also keep your child-like spirit alive as you get older. At the same time, it will serve as a way to destress from the hassles of young adult life.

9. Live spontaneously
While you're young and single, do not be afraid to live life spontaneously.

 Certainly, this is something that you won't do easily when you already have familial responsibilities. So, book that budget flight to a place that you've always wanted to visit or bust your salary on a sudden getaway via seaplane with your gal pals, or take an unplanned road trip.

All these things are excellent efforts to make the most out of young adulthood, and you'll be able to move forward with just a few or no regrets in life at all. 

Which among these are you ready to try soon?
