When you are a teenager, summer's can easily be filled with work, volunteering, or school preparation, leaving no time to do other activities. Every summer, I make a bucket list with everything I want to do, eat, try, etc. over the summer, but I never end up doing over half of them. Below, I have included some tips with how to make yourself some time this summer to try something new, along with some ideas to put on your summer bucket list. Enjoy!
Bucket List Ideas
Managing time for it!
One of the easiest ways to make time is to plan ahead. If you create a planner for everything you have in the next week, it is a lot easier to see empty spots or times that you can fill with summer bucket list activities.
Another way to get more time in is to set aside set time for yourself. Before planning out your summer schedule, double check what you have time for so that you don't overbook yourself before the summer has even started.
The reason a lot of people believe that they don't have any time for a summer bucket list is because the time not spent working is used for sleeping because of how tiring work was. Scheduling a short nap during the day and making sure that you receive 8 hours of sleep a night will prevent you from feeling run down during the day, which will give you more energy to do an activity from the summer bucket list.
The next step is to go out and create a summer bucket list of your own! It can be made together with friends or family, or can be a personal summer bucket list with goals that you want to reach over the summer. By creating and following a bucket list, you will feel more fulfilled at the end of summer, and maybe a little bit more ready to get back to the routine of work or the school year. Let me know in the comments below if you have ever made a summer bucket list or have any tips that you want to share. Have a great week!
