You may have a life bucket list that applies to activities you do year-round, but what about a seasonal bucket list? This can be a great way to know what you want to do or get done during this particularly busy time of year, and even find some new activities you have never done before. There are so many enjoyable things to do; make this autumn a time when you take advantage of more of them.
Benefits of Making a Bucket List
First, a bit about bucket lists. There are different kinds of them: regular life bucket lists, and specific ones, like time sensitive bucket lists (things to do before a certain age), or seasonal bucket lists. Benefits of having them include helping you to reach certain goals and have new experiences. You might have things in your mind you have always wanted to do, but what actions have you taken to make them a reality? This is often the hardest part.
When you have a bucket list, you have a clear list of things to do, places to go, people to meet. You are able to look at the list, set tasks to achieve these goals, and move out of your routines.
Why Use a Season-Specific List?
There are quite a few reasons to do a season-specific bucket list, such as one for fall/autumn. This list will focus on things that you want to accomplish in the next few months. You will list simple things you can do and really want to do for the season. It gives you an idea of what you can plan for this season, including what to add to your calendar or planner.
Your seasonal bucket list will help you really enjoy all the season has to offer, instead of constantly feeling like you passed up a good opportunity. I certainly have experienced that over and over. Because I didn’t put things on a bucket list, and ultimately on a calendar, I missed things I wanted to do during that season.
Ideas for What to Include
When thinking about what to include on your fall bucket list, think of what you enjoy doing during the season, or what you have always wanted to do, but never got around to. Maybe there is an apple festival nearby, or you want to go apple picking. You can add fun things like going on a hay ride, picking out a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch, or doing certain fall crafts. There may be fall bazaars at local churches or community centers that you would enjoy.
Plan for a drive, either close to home or farther away, to view the beauty of fall leaves as they turn to gold, orange and red. Perhaps you will want to do photos for your holiday cards of your family in a beautiful fall setting like that. In addition, there are things you would like to initiate with friends or family: having friends over for game night or bonfire or going on a fall hike.
List anything and everything you would want to do, prioritize and schedule them and have a wonderful fall season!! Download your Fall Bucket List form here.
