There are resolutions, and then there are bucket lists—those things you just have to try at some point or another. But like resolutions, bucket list items should come in all shapes and sizes. Here are ten creative bucket list ideas for 2017 that will take you out of your routine.
Journal Every Morning
There’s nothing like starting the day off with a little self-reflection. Don’t set limits, but try to write every morning for as many days in a row as you can, even if it’s just a sentence.
Be a Tourist
It’s too easy to take for granted that which we see every day. Plan a staycation weekend where you explore all that there is to see in your own town. Eat out at local restaurants, take lots of photos and visit the attractions.
Write a Book
Start small and write a ten-page eBook on one of your favorite things. There are resources out there that will help you learn how to write and publish your book for free online.
Set Reading Goals
Whether you read a book a week, a chapter a day or a series in a year, it’ll be fun to make reading a part of your daily routine.
Organize a Picnic
Get some friends together and plan an elaborate picnic to welcome in the spring or summer. Collect blankets, pillows, candles, and prepare a delicious menu. The more extravagant, the more unforgettable!
