Nina Dobrev took celebrating the next 366 days to an entirely new level this year. Instead of just getting dolled up and wearing a fancy dress to watch the ball drop, the actress went sky diving in Hawaii, and she shared the breathtaking video (below) with her more than 7 million Instagram followers.

In the amazing footage, you can see the star take an impressive leap that literally made our hearts drop. She didn't just simply jump out of the helicopter; with her instructor's help, she took a thrilling backflip into the clouds. Although the thought of diving from a plane is enough to scare most people, Dobrev handled the exciting task like a pro, and she even blew a kiss and through up her hands in the shape of a heart while soaring through the sky. Dobrev appropriately captioned the video, "When I said jumping into 2016... I meant it LITERALLY."

There really aren't too many more exciting ways to ring in a new year.
