    What do you do that makes you feel alive? Maybe it gets your heart and adrenaline pumping so that you can't help but feel so alive. Or maybe it's when you're feeling calm and serene and not doing anything in particular. So what makes you feel alive and why?

    I know its strange, but somehow I feel the most alive with near death experiences. It sort of works in a way in which you don' realized you're really living until you're about to die. Aside from that crazy theology, I feel alive when I run. Yes you saw this response coming I know Its true though. That feeling of accomplishing a run, feeling the rain slide across your face, smelling the moist air, and just relaxing and smiling knowing that happiness can remind you of your purpose. To live, and just embrace as much of life as you can.

    I feel most alive when I'm in a competition of any sort against someone who has equal skill to me. Competition motivates me and drives me to improve myself more than anything else, and this is strongest when I'm facing others equal to me.

    This one is easy. Physical stress.
    I love to train. I go to the gym And I spar with my sister (who is stronger than me). Just the way your body is in pain after a training session, is out of this world. Other physical activities also "make me feel alive". Be physical. Its amazing.

    A late night, isolated walk with no one around and just the sounds of frogs and crickets in the background. It's refreshing, relaxing, and of course, healthy (in the sense that you're walking). If under a lot of stress, this can do wonders sometimes.

    When I complete a set task to the best of my ability within its deadline and lie down on my bed, laptop in hands. That's when I feel alive sir.

    I've always felt most alive when spending time with a romantic partner. No, I don't mean sexually. It could be anything; Just spending time with them. Going to the park, doing something goofy, sneaking out of their house with their very religious father comes home, just doing fun stuff with them! :D It just all around makes you feel good. I don't have a romantic relationship at the present, but I do have the memories.

    I feel the most alive when I am creating something new--especially when doing it with other people.

    I feel most alive when listening to motivational music, honestly. It gets me pumped up, and for the most part cheers me up and makes me feel like I can take on the world.

    Fight or Flight, as they say.
    I'm alive when I'm really stressed. Really, really really stressed.
    -Or giving up my life to ride a roller coaster, that I'd never want to ride again-

    Often, riding something speedy like a roller coaster or a go-kart can do this for me. It just feels so surreal, somehow; watching everything go by quickly, the wind, and enjoying the ride itself. I often get pretty lost in my thoughts when doing these things. Having a casual, close time with my friends or listening to some music while taking a walk can also do the trick on some days, depending on how I feel. This one might sound strange, but listening to certain loud or "roaring" noises like thunder, a creature roaring in a movie/show, or standing underneath a roller coaster track can also be surprisingly adrenaline-pumping (or sometimes calming) to me.

    I feel the most alive when it's a beautiful day outside, especially in the summer. Just so exhilarating.

    I really love thrill rides such as rollarcoasters. They really get me pumped and my blood flowing. It's super fun to scream and shout and just overall have a great time!

    For me, it's in those moments of passion that engulfs my soul as I pour my heart into a song. It's in stolen moments of fame as I stand on the stage, facing an audience. It's on the chessboard as I carefully analyze the position.

    Taking a reflective walk by myself while just observing and soaking in nature's beautifulness just makes me feel alive like no other thing in this world.

    There is very little that makes me feel alive, or even actively glad about life itself. The reason for this is that I approach life from a generally neutral standpoint. To date I can only think of one thing that gives me a feeling of increased vitality, and that is talking to (or hearing back from) someone, usually a friend of mine, whom I have not heard from or talked to in several weeks at least - said time frames are usually on the order of at least a full month.

    Knowing that the people I care about are alive and well in turn gives me incentive to continue being alive and well, but without that, I confess there is little meaning to the steps I take through life.
