Why Skydiving In The New Year Will Change Your Life

Thursday, January 19, 2023

Happy New Year! When the fleeting moments of New Year celebrations fade away and reality sets in, you probably begin to question yourself, “What intentions will I set this new year?” Maybe you want something new, something different, something life-changing …

This is the perfect year to set your sights on adventure and the life-changing experience of making a skydive! Here are the reasons why skydiving in the new year will change your life.


Yes! Skydiving isn’t just a thrill ride, skydiving will enrich your life in so many ways – mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. You just have to allow it. When you fully embrace the experience, you’ll be amazed at just how impactful it can be. 

Skydivers come from all walks of life, but most started with a tandem skydive. That first jump can change your entire life path. After your first tandem skydive, you might decide to get your skydiving license which will open the doors to a whole new world that you maybe never even knew existed. Next thing you know, you’re a part of an amazing community and basically live at the drop zone!

Everyone’s skydiving experience is unique to the individual because it isn’t just about the external experience – it’s more about what’s happening on the inside. You’ll feel a shift in perspective; relief from the burdens you may be carrying, if even for a moment. You’ll feel free! The positivity following your skydive can spill over into other aspects of your life, too. Skydiving can sow seeds of empowerment and inspiration in the most magical way.


Literally, physically, and mentally. When you’re soaring through the sky at 14,000 feet, your problems suddenly seem minuscule. You’ll feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude and appreciation for the richness and beauty of life. This can be a huge wake-up call for some people. Skydiving makes an impact like nothing else can.

You’ll gain CONFIDENCE

Skydiving in the new year is the perfect way to set yourself up for success in other areas of your life, like achieving the other resolutions on your list. The effects of skydiving on the brain are extremely beneficial thanks to the mixture of all of those feel-good chemicals being released through your body. We’re talkin’ serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, and adrenaline. These neurotransmitters will leave you feeling superhuman — like you’re on top of the world!

All of a sudden, you’ll feel the weight of life’s stresses and anxieties lifted from your psyche and you’ll experience a sense of clarity and affirmation. You’ll gain the confidence to make those tough life-changing decisions and to set a real plan for accomplishing your goals!

You’ll feel the FREEDOM

Grant yourself the freedom to let loose, to let go of everything, and release the tension from the monotony of life. Give yourself permission to be playful, like a kid again! Gift yourself the time and space to really have some fun – to try something exciting and new while also changing your life. The skydiving community has a way of encouraging everybody to just be themselves regardless of all the labels that are placed on you in the “real world” … because when you’re in the sky, none of those labels matter. You’re free to be … FREEEE!

You’ll conquer your SKYDIVING BUCKET LIST

We get it. To-do lists can be quite daunting – especially your bucket list. But why wait until you’re ready to kick the bucket? Start living your life to the fullest NOW! We guarantee that after you check skydiving off of your bucket list, you’ll see that your list isn’t actually as intimidating as you thought. When you just go for it, you make things happen, instead of life happening to you. Feel empowered. Do more of the things that you really want in life.
