40 Things To Do Before You’re 40 – Part 4

Inspired by new movie 'This Is 40', we're looking at 40 things you should do before you're putting 40 candles on the cake...

New movie ‘This Is 40’ hits Irish cinemas this week and in the sort-of sequel to ‘Knocked Up’ Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s characters are confronting the realities that come with life in your forties. Before you get there, we’ve compiled a list of forty things your really should do, before life begins again at the big Four-O. 


31. Give blood.

31. See the Northern Lights.

33. Quit a job you hate.

34. Switch off your phone for a whole 24 hours.

35. Root out your old board games and host a games night for friends.

36. Learn how to play poker.

37. Dress up, just because it’s Tuesday/raining/February. Why not?

38. Get to know at least one of your neighbours.

39. Learn how to swim.

40. Learn that it’s the people, not the things, that matter.
