    I dance with my 8 year old daughter – she is an energetic bundle of joy, the chatterbox of the house, and a Britney Spears in the making! We dance to 80’s music and make fools of ourselves and laugh until our cheeks hurt! My body comes alive and I have a workout at the same time.

    Been practising an ancient form of chinese healing art called Tai Chi for some years now and loving it so far. Helps relieve stress, improve coordination, tone muscles, maintain good posture, develop flexibility, can anything be more alive than that?

    When I want to feel alive, I normally go out dancing and let all my inhibitions go and not care who is watching. So I totally agree with Lisa!

    I go and bake a beautiful rich chocolate cake! Nothing like filling my cozy home with the smell of a freshly baked cake and then sharing it with all my friends and family.

    Plus you know your alive when after you’ve eaten the cake, you need to unbutton your jeans!

    I reach out. I listen. I laugh. I text my friends. I call my mum. I do everything possible to remind people that I’m here. You have to connect in order to feel alive; it’s the people in your life who make living worthwhile. Let them know you care and leave your mark while you can!

    To feel alive I usually do crazy things or something I haven’t tried before or try to beat a fear of mine. For example, I am terrified of heights and last summer I actually went out on my friend’s paraglider thingy and I didn’t die. That made me feel alive for sure. haha

    I appreciate every day I share with my best friend and partner, David. We work 100 hours a week on our business but no matter what, we always get dolled up, put the dancing shoes on, spray the perfume and go salsa dancing on saturday nights. We also drive to the beach every sunday evening to watch the sunset and to listen to the waves hitting the rocks and to let our minds run freely. It’s so therapeutic and keeps us refreshed, alive and full of new ideas ready to start the next 100 hours :-)

    Surfing. Its the feeling of flying I dreamt of as a child, when I catch a wave, time stops and I’m in a combined state of excitement, peace, euphoria and accomplishment. Its a soul searching, soul cleansing moment, being in the salt water and having multiple aspects of mother nature simultaneously combined, to also be a global bond between cultures with no language barriers, ultimately, this feeling and rush makes me feel ALIVE.

    What I do to feel alive
    Is quite simply, go for a drive.
    As up until 6 months ago
    I was a afraid of driving,for those who don’t know.
    As a very busy mum of three
    Getting public transport was hard as could be
    Without a liense at age 32
    Was tough on me and my family too
    So I finally took the plunge one day
    Decided I’d try my best come what may
    I got my license on my very first try
    And now I feel free as a bird who loves to fly!!!

    I Lay in the sun in the nice crisp air
    Let the world go by without any care
    When it’s time to say goodbye to the sun
    I slip on my heels and hit the town just for fun!
    When it’s all over and the night is dead
    It’s on with the pj’s and cuddles in bed

    Music makes my heart sing. And seeing it live, is my favourite thing. In a room filled with people, all singing the same song. It makes me feel alive with passion and love.

    First of all listening music, cooking, spending time with my hub, maybe dancing, a glass of wine, a bit of chocolate, or maybe sitting on a bench and listening the birds.

    Lie in gorgeous green grass, under a brilliant blue sky and feel the sunshine rain down on me.
    Inhale the sweet fragrances of the world around me.
    Listen to the music of waves crashing, ripples rushing and rain spilling from the sky.
    Dance in the moment.
    Celebrate fun with friends.
    Nurture a families love.
    Smile at the simple pleasures of life.

    Feeling alive for me means helping someone- just what I consider small things. I am always the first to jump in and help if an older person is struggling with their bags, or a mum has a screaming baby or toddler at the checkout, or any other random situation I can see where I can help. The thanks I receive is not why I do it, it just always makes me feel good and a really warm feeling inside- yes it does help me feel alive! :)

    Learning something new makes me feel alive! Whether it’s knowledge I need to be better in my workplace or learning how to rock reptilian print and turquoise :), anything that inspires creation, encourages personal growth or confirms what you already know is so satisfying.

    Wander, travel, explore new kind of places or ‘conquer’ old ones again :) I’m chasing adventures and excitements with my boyfriend, too….he’s my biggest inspiration in that as he’s a real wild-ish boy :P nothing is impossible and still we’re young we need to make memorable journays, moments together!*
    also sit out in our garden and feel the rays of the sun and the mild-warm wind on my skin ^_^

    Being mesmerized by nature: squelching my toes in the foamy brine, wind tousling my hair and the sun’s warmth caressing my skin as I run along the bech, reminds me how good it is to be alive.

    I am a 5th year medical student, and during my rotations I’ve seen thousands of patients. I’ve seen people in and out of hospitals, diagnosed with common and easily treatable ailments; I’ve witnessed people fight more serious conditions and win against the disease after a long and painful battle, but I have also seen a lot of people whose disease was stronger than they were. I remember the stories and faces of these people, I remember seeing them every day in their hospital beds with their life wasting away, a little more with every passing second. They were sadly often lonely, and with an urge to tell everyone who would listen a piece of their life story, so I often found myself being the only listener of an existence that would soon end and that nobody would remember. There was no hope left in the eyes of those people; there was endless sadness, rage towards their faith, confusion, and sometimes a pained acceptance.
    I think about those patients, and every time I do, I remind myself that not feeling alive every second of my life would be a slap in their faces. There is nothing that makes me feel alive, it’s a thing I acknowledge to be a privilege, and every single day I appreciate the fact that I am capable to do what I want, and that there is not an imminent expiration date over my head. I don’t need to do something special to feel alive, because this is already such a great gift, something so priceless, that thousands of people lose everyday.
    I feel alive every second of everyday, because anything less would mean being ungrateful for the biggest gift of all.
