Are you ready to live your best life this Spring? Check out these 50 fun things to do to create the ultimate Spring bucket list!
My family recently made a big move and relocated across the country about 6 months ago, and to be honest…
The transition was a BIG change for all of us, but the kids seem to have fully adjusted to their new surroundings and community in no time at all!
It’s a huge help that they go to school and play sports so they have a natural way to meet new people and start creating new connections.
My husband and I on the other hand, predominantly work from home, so the opportunities to make new friends and fully acclimate is a bit more challenging.
We definitely have gotten into a bit of a rut and have not really embraced all the cool opportunities to do fun things in our surrounding community.
And add in that we live in a vacation town where people come to visit the dozens of beaches nearby and the many touristy things to do, we have really dropped the ball in making the most of our new hometown!
To quote my very favorite movie (please don’t judge me on this one!)
“There’s so much room for activities”!
We live in an amazing place, and it truly is the perfect time to explore and soak in all that our local area has to offer!
Although it’s Spring Break vacation season here in Southwest Florida (so it might be a bit more crowded than off-season), I’m not going to let any excuse stop me from planning some fun spring activities for myself, my hubby, and my family!
So let’s jump right in and start planning the best spring activities!
HOW TO CREATE A SPRING BUCKET LIST:
1. FIND TIME:
First, create a little personal time…it will not be a huge time commitment but it will be helpful to have some distraction-free time to create your spring bucket list.
If you will be doing these spring activities with anyone in particular (kids, spouse, partner, maybe even your whole family), invite them to join you!
This can be a fun challenge for anyone you want to spend more time with together!
Ultimately setting aside 20-30 minutes should be ample time!
2. FIND YOUR CENTER:
Whether it’s meditating, visualizing, or simply taking a few deep, relaxing breaths…take a moment to get grounded and calm.
So be sure to power down the phone, turn off the tv, and if you are lucky enough to have warmer weather where you live right now maybe sit outdoors near a tree and soak up the sun or enjoy having the windows open.
When you are creating an action plan for your life, it’s always best to have clear headspace and to be in a good vibe energetically!
3. FIND YOUR FOCUS:
Write several main headings of the areas or themes in your life that you want to focus on…(Health, Friends, Fun, Family, Travel, Etc).
Choose the topics that resonate where you want to put your focus this spring, or I’ve made it a bit easier for you with my handy dandy printable below! (Just click the image to get the printable)
Or if you want a more colorful version? I’ll send one your way too!
4. BRAINSTORM A LIST:
Now it’s time to get creative…have an idea for a great activity this springtime?
Then, write it down!
I normally write this master list on a black piece of paper.
It’s basically a stream of consciousness in written form…all ideas are welcome and valid!
