People advertise sports events and extreme courses as if it were something safe and interesting to do. Has! But it is not! It’s not like learning to play chess or watching a fantastic movie, not at all.
1. You can hurt yourself or die.
It may seem very convincing that the rate of people dying in car accidents is higher than the rate of those who die from the parachute jump. But no matter what statistics show you, the truth is one – you can he die or at least seriously injure oneself when practicing extreme sports. It happens all the time.
2. It will cost you money.
Every extreme sport requires some equipment. For some sports like skateboarding it’s cheaper, for some like scuba diving it’s more expensive – but with an exception, practicing extreme sports will cost you some of your hard-earned money.
Isn’t it a much better idea to spend your money on t-shirts with the fashion brand or cool tech gadgets?
3. It takes time.
More often than not practicing an extreme sport requires going to a special place somewhere (water, mountain, hill). It takes time to get there, it takes time to practice, it takes time to go home, it takes time to rest. Sometimes extreme sport can take up all your free time.
Isn’t it sad? You could use this time for such big tasks as playing video games.
4. Your career may suffer.
Extreme sports will not only take up your time, but will also occupy your brain. You will think of this at the right time, the next time you do it. This often kills the motivation at work and makes you wait only until the end of the workday.
It’s much better to be a good employee, to grow in your career and get a good stable salary!
5. You could fall in love.
There are two ways you could fall in love: first, you can, and most likely, you fall in love with the extreme sport you are doing. This is so serious because of the reason already mentioned. Secondly, you could fall in love with some of your partners, an instructor or an instructor.
What an unpleasant situation, it is much better to stay in your comfort zone and avoid falling in love with crazy things.
6. You will feel bad when you can’t practice.
You’ll miss your extreme sport when you’re at work, when you’re away from the right place, when you don’t have time or money, when the weather isn’t good … you’ll miss it all the time. And missing something hurts, believe me.
Life is much more painless when you have nothing to lose and nothing to lose, don’t you?
7. Your old friends will think you’re crazy.
I bet they will. Imagine how they look at you when you say you won’t attend the Friday party because you have to get up early and go to the skydive. They’ll think you’re crazy. Many of them will be bored when you are excited to tell them about your last mountain bike success. Some will even feel bad when you become fitter due to extreme sport.
And think about the moment you suffer an injury. “I told you, I told you!”
8. You will lose interest in a lot of commun activities
Practicing an extreme sport will brainwash you so much that you might stop caring about some regular activities you like now. It’s not just work. You will stop caring about interesting things like watching TV programs, playing video games and even doing fun tests on Facebook.
Can you imagine it? Horrible!
