Posted on: January 4th, 2017 by Elysiann Bishop

Bucket List for 2017Happy New Year! Perhaps you’re part of the 45% of Americans who make New Year resolutions. If so, we commend you – may 2017 be a year of great accomplishments! However, if you’re perpetually among the 92% of Americans who do not achieve their resolutions and are looking for an alternative route, have you considered a “bucket list”?

By now, the term bucket list has become mainstream in our culture – a reference to experiences we’d like to check off, typically in a lifetime. Why not make 2017 the year of the bucket list? From simple to grandiose, bucket list items can be modified to fit your interests and lifestyle. While resolutions often focus on kicking bad habits, a bucket list is all about interesting and exciting things you really want to do – making buckets lists fun and rewarding to complete. The following are just a few ideas for new adventures in 2017:

  • Discover a nearby museum or national park
  • Try a new kind of ethnic cuisine
  • Rent a stand up paddleboard or kayak
  • Get a professional facial treatment
  • Plant a garden
  • Experience a sauna
  • Attend a festival you’ve never experienced
  • Take an art class (or any class)
  • Go camping
  • Have a massage
  • Try a new kind of tea
  • Stay at a bed and breakfast
  • Shop at a farmers market
  • Attend a sports event
  • Visit a winery
  • Go to the theater or symphony
  • Take a hike
  • Travel to a new state
  • Travel to a new country

The bucket list is simply a fun and positive spin on the age-old tradition of New Year resolutions. Spend a few moments brainstorming, and see how a bucket list might broaden your horizons in 2017!
