Getting high doesn’t always have to come in the form of a substance. There are so many things we can do that are good for us, fun, and also help improve our lives that can get us “high.” In fact, you probably already do some of them, and the feeling you get while doing them is the reason you do them. Kind of like when you did drugs. Except these things have awesome positive benefits instead of negative ones.
5 Ways to Get High That Are GOOD For You
Exercise produces endorphins, endorphins make you happy and happy people, they have better lives. Exercise is one of my own personal ways to get high without drugs. After a really good sprint session or a sweaty workout I am always left with an amazing feeling of accomplishment, health, glowy-goodness, that I didn’t feel before the workout. Not only that, I have more energy, I can focus better and I just made myself a little bit stronger! It is an all natural, positive drug that betters who I am as a person and my health. Granted, this can be taken to an extreme, as with anything, and become a problem but with a good balance exercise can be one of our greatest sources to get “high” without drugs.
2. Cooking, Eating, Healthy or Unhealthy
Just like exercise can run amok if you take it to an extreme so can cooking and eating. With the right balance though cooking healthy meals or even the occasional treat can be an awesome source of good feelings, accomplishment, energy, relaxation, nourishment and health. I personally love baking, I don’t usually eat a whole lot of what I do bake, but I love baking up a nice cake, bread, or cupcake and giving it all away to friends. Not only do I get to make someone else’s day and that in turn also makes my day, I get to do something I love. All in all it just makes me feel great.
3. Outdoor Activities
Personally for myself this one can be anything from kayaking to deep-sea fishing. When I am doing something really fun that I am passionate about I get that natural high. I get the excitement, adrenalin; feel good stuff that makes me just love life. I feel amazing!! And the cool thing is these activities can be done with friends making them doubly enjoyable and also creating comradery amongst those of us who don’t use drugs and drink. Which brings me to number 4.
4. Hanging Out With Really Good People
Now I am not talking about just hanging out with anyone, I am talking about spending time with those people you can really be yourself around. Those people who you can let loose, be yourself, and just enjoy life with. The people who make you laugh that deep belly laugh. That is a natural high if I have ever known one and you want to know how you experience it? You spend time with people you love and who love you back.
5. Doing Something You’ve Never Done Before
The experience of EXPERIENCING something new is unlike anything else. Whether something new is traveling, hiking, seeing a view, going out on a boat, skydiving, driving a motorcycle, whatever it is a great natural high. Experiencing something new adds life to our years. It is adds memories, laughs, knowledge, wisdom and of course experience itself. And if you are looking for a great way to get that feel good feeling one of the best ways to do it is to try something you have never done before. The fear mixed with the excitement, adrenalin and accomplishment after you’ve done it will all add up to one hell of a time.
So what do you think? I think there are a lot of great ways to get high WITHOUT drugs and alcohol when we go out and experience life! So get out there and get to it. Experience the highs LIFE has to offer all by itself without the substances.
