The essence of any good bucket list consists of overcoming fears, achieving goals, realizing dreams and even simple pleasures. Whether it’s an exotic adventure half-way around the world or something simpler, like spending more time with your family or friends, what matters is that you experience all the good and phenomenal things Earth offers.

Here you’ll find 225 things to do before you die. Sure, a few of them are what some might consider to be cliché, but we made it a priority to think mostly outside the box.

Falling money

With the current economic climate, everyone is trying their best to avoid unnecessary expenses. Being economical does not mean not enjoying life, not eating out once in a while or not taking vacations. But it does mean managing your financials intelligently and not paying through your nose for products or services you can get for free or for less. And that’s where the following list […]

Handing over cash

In the movies, getting an inheritance always seems like a straightforward affair. There’s a knock at the door and a lawyer wearing a flashy suit hands the stunned recipient the keys to an estate or a check for millions. But the fact is that if you were to receive an inheritance these days, it would likely be in the form of an IRA, which makes […]

Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

While a hot cup of beef chili smothered in cheddar cheese can be just the thing on a cold fall day, a good vegetarian chili can be equally as hearty and delicious – and a lot healthier. After seeing this tasty looking chili from Cookie and Kate a few months ago, I knew I had to come up with my own version. Several batches later, I have […]

Couch potato watching TV

Did you know that the average American watches 5 hours and 11 minutes of television every day? That’s 36 hours of television per week, which in turn leads to 144 hours – or 6 full days –  of television every month. If you think that’s bad, imagine how much that adds up to over the course of a year – 1,728 hours, or 72 full […]

New business owner

Many people start businesses but fewer succeed. For many of those people, failure was directly related to their inability to lead an entrepreneurial effort. Being a successful entrepreneur typically requires an entrepreneurial spirit as well as a long list of character and personality traits that enable the entrepreneur to reach his or her goals. While it’s possible for a person to succeed in an entrepreneurial […]

Skeleton playing guitar

For what is arguably the most sinister holiday of all, Halloween certainly has a pretty anemic soundtrack. It’s time of nightmares come true and fears realized and what do we get? Monster Mash? Ghostbusters? Werewolves of London? Please. Even the classic Thriller is more likely to make you break out in a moonwalk instead of a cold sweat. But fear not kiddies, here we present […]

Frightened man watching a horror movie

The older we get, the more Halloween appeals to us as a holiday. Good beer, good friends, good times and candy—what’s not to enjoy? But no celebration of Oct. 31 is complete without the right combination of scary movies to pass the time. To inspire your trick-or-treating, Life’d has put together the 25 Most Terrifying Films of All Time with full knowledge that you’re going […]

Smiling woman

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. – Dalai Lama There are two types of people in the world: those who choose to be happy, and those who choose to be unhappy. Contrary to popular belief, happiness doesn’t come from fame, fortune, other people, or material possessions. Rather, it comes from within. The richest person in the world could be […]

Professional swimmer

When it comes to the best activities for overall fitness, swimming invariably floats to the top of the list. It’s an aerobic exercise without the jarring shock to the body that comes from jogging. It’s a strength-building exercise that uses the body’s natural motions, creating long lean muscles and functional strength, as opposed to the compact, movement-specific muscle gains achieved in weight lifting. And it’s […]

Pinterest homepage

Pinterest is one of the most popular social websites with a large and continually growing audience of dedicated pinners. Within minutes, you can create a free Pinterest account and start creating pinboards, pinning content, commenting on other boards, following members’ and specific boards, and more. However, there are some rules of etiquette (dubbed “pintequette”) that you need to follow in order to be a welcomed […]
