Man shall not live by bread alone. That’s why after serving you matters on affiliate marketing all year long, I’m veering off at the end of the year with this to do list of 139 things for everybody. Surely you’ve done some of them. You’ll certainly find more to do.

Life in our day is too fast and in the madness of it all, we end up not doing a lot of things we had on our minds.

Therefore, I suggest that you take the opportunity to do new things before the time flies definitely by.

New experiences can be affirming and life-enriching. And since most people have at least one major regret when they look back on their lives, you must start filling your life with new experiences.

Lost as to what to do or where to start from?

I know tastes are varied. So choose at will.

That said, let’s dive in and see them.

A. Experience nature

Take a break. Relax and unwind.

1. Go camping in an unconventional place

Camp in a maybe prohibited place. Make your fire, cook a meal and feel warmth and safety, and finally go to bed wondering if anyone or anything will come around in the middle of the night. The experience is both horrifying and liberating.

2. Experience Snow

Go to a place which is not familiar to you and ideally alone. Explore it, interact with the local people and taste their traditional food. Make it an experience, not just a vacation.
