One of the effective ways in doing this is to engagae in Adventure Sports.
Adventure sports are existent in various forms, for example scuba diving, sky diving, bungee jumping and rock climbing. In scuba diving, a person descends deep into the ocean with the diving gear and enjoys the marine life. This is done mainly for pleasure. While, para gliding is an aerial sport and involves man versus gravity and wind. On the other hand, Rock climbing is more of an ‘earthy’ sport. Rock climbers ascend several kinds of rock formations, many of which are at a high elevation.

Participating in adventure sports do away with our inhibitions and help us in physical and mental development, our decison-making abilities are enhanced and our fears conquered.
