As we get older our natural inclination towards fun activities and adventure doesn’t diminish, instead, what diminishes is the time and energy we can put towards unadulterated fun. Who doesn’t pass by a mini putt course and have strong urges to play a quick 18? Who doesn’t come across a wave pool and wish they had packed trunks in their briefcase? Fact is, as we transition into adulthood it is important to remember to make time to be a kid, or at least act like one as often as possible. Put down your phone and don’t answer that text because including fun in your life is as important or more important than work.
Bench Canada invited us out to Joe Rockhead’s as a reintroduction to the importance of adventure. We got a chance to experience something completely new for us – rock climbing. For those who have never tried rock climbing, we can promise you this; the challenge is real. No matter your fitness level there is a wall for you. From beginner walls to advanced walls you will find yourself using muscles that have probably been in hibernation since the day of your birth. Also, for those of us with a competitive side, getting to the top of a wall is as satisfying as it gets. Do yourself a favour. Watch Cliff Hanger with Sylvester Stallone then head over to Joe Rockhead’s for some fun!
We look forward to more opportunities for adventure with @BenchCanada in the #MyBenchAdventure series. In the meantime, we’ll be making time for new adventures everyday. Stepping away from the daily grind for at least a couple hours and just having fun. We suggest you do the same!
