Things to Do If Today Was Your Last

23 Things You Should Do Today Because You Only Live Once

Today is a holiday for the extremes — it's All or Nothing Day. It's a time to attempt to do something you've never done or always wanted to do and go through with it. It's also a time to embrace the YOLO or You Only Live Once philosophy and just appreciate life as it is. Here are some great suggestions for things to do today:

  • Smile at a stranger.
  • Strike up a conversation with the doorman in your office building.
  • Buy a homeless person a meal.
  • Read your favorite book.
  • Watch the sunset.
  • Tell a joke.
  • Sing in an open karaoke bar.
  • Call your loved ones or meet up with them. Tell them why you love them.
  • Enjoy the outdoors. Go to a nearby park or a place with a natural setting.
  • Go to an art museum to enjoy the best talent mankind has to offer or a history museum to witness historical milestones.
  • Surround yourself with animals. Go to a shelter or play with your pal's dog if you don't have a pet.
  • Eat your favorite meal.
  • Eat something you've never tried before
  • Make amends with someone.
  • Forget past grudges.
