Holiday Bucket List

Holiday Bucket List

So, here are three major things to remember with bucket lists of any kind …

  1. The majority of the items need to be small, fast, and doable. (Who has extra time right now?)

  2. They need to be full of activities you WANT to do, not what you think you SHOULD do. If you fill your list with the latter it is doomed from the beginning.

  3. Most importantly – they must be taken with a grain of salt, and in the spirit of fun. As soon as you find yourself feeling stressed that you aren’t getting to enough activities you have to allow yourself the grace to remember holiday seasons are bananas and let go.

So if you want to add a little extra fun to your holiday season, feel free to steal this list and add to/eliminate as you personally prefer. I guarantee it will add to your enjoyment and it feels so stinkin’ good to check off items on a list, doesn’t it?

My personal favourite part of bucket lists is at the end you have proof you actually accomplished time together during the season. It goes by so fast, I often feel I didn’t do enough … each check mark fights that negative thinking.

This holiday season I hope you find time to be with those you love, find time to be with yourself, and above all – wherever you go, whatever you do make a conscious effort to be all there.
