Summer Bucket List Ideas You Can ACTUALLY Do!

Can I tell you how happy I am that you’re here? 😍 Welcome back to The Jolly Space!

I’ve been thinking about setting summer goals recently, so I’m gonna chat about that today!

😎 Summer Goals 🌴

Don’t summer goals sound EXCITING?

It’s such an epic time of year!

However, it can quickly become disappointing when you set huge goals, or too many goals, or overplan and don’t end up having enough fun or leisure time.

So, how can you avoid that? How can you promote awesome goals you not only want to reach, but can reach?

I’m gonna share some of my ideas with you today!

Let’s set intentions instead of big goals this summer. By setting out to do less of what you don’t want to do, and more of what you do, you’ll create new habits + discover what you want to do along the way!

Here are some examples:

Instead of reading 25 books, try checking out more books from the library!
Instead of doing a [travel destination] vlog/post, try documenting your summer travels!
Instead of eating no sugar, try making new healthy recipes!
Instead of blogging every day, try having weekly blog planning sessions!
Instead of writing a book, try writing one page of your WIP every day!

While there’s certainly nothing wrong with the bigger goals I just outlined, cramming them into one season (or a whole year) can be uncomfortable. When we don’t reach those goals, we spiral back to the things we don’t want to be doing.

So by setting intentions instead, we’re much more likely to naturally achieve those goals simply by intentionally moving toward them!

Here are some ideas for fun activities, new habits, and challenges you can incorporate into your summer holidays 🌟
