February 29 comes only once every four years, and that makes this day truly special. It is a gift of sorts from the Universe, perhaps the most precious gift we can receive - time. The time we don't have enough to do a task, to have fun, to rest, to be with the people we love...  

So, we offer you five ideas for some different activities to make sense of this bonus day. Whatever you choose to do during it, remember - that's an extra 24 hours, which is 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds. Enjoy every one of them and don't waste them.

Tell someone you love them

All of us have probably regretted not saying it to someone enough, and it's too late. There are a few things in life to not procrastinate on, and this is one of them. Use this bonus day to tell at least one person how much you care about them. That way you'll make their is day special too.

Do something nice to a stranger

Every day is another chance to be a better version of yourself. And on February 29, you can start small. Make a promise to yourself first thing in the morning that you will do good to a stranger on this day. Fate will surely give you such an opportunity, don't miss it.

... or whatever else you dream of. You've probably been procrastinating for a long time to take up something exciting and new. You might even know exactly what it is, but you just haven't gotten around to it - a cooking class, learning a new language, going to a group exercise class, or even something as small as starting an exciting book. February 29 is a great day to do it. 

Buy the tickets you so want

Most of us secretly dream of a ticket - it could be a plane ticket for a long-awaited trip, or a concert ticket for your favorite band, or maybe it's a movie ticket for that romantic movie you've been wanting to see so badly, or the new play at the theater... No matter what it's for, don't put it off - that ticket could take you to an exciting place.

Give yourself a different kind of evening

Are you tired of doing the same thing every night? You probably come home from work, cook dinner, then eat in front of the TV and go to bed. Or maybe your routine is different but still involves the same actions. Choose a different activity for tonight. Enjoy a hot bath with fragrant oils, a date with favorite friends, some engaging movie, an evening walk with a loved one, a long drive with pleasant music... the choice is yours.
