Summer Bucket List Ideas

When building your summer bucket list, you should try to be ambitious and think outside of the box. Put items on your summer bucket list that will give you joy and allow you to enjoy the hot weather whilst its there. However, if you're struggling for ideas then don't worry, we've got you covered! Here are some of our top bucket list ideas:

  • Try a new hobby such as sewing, writing, blogging, running, and if you hate it then you can give it up at the end of summer!
  • Travel - Visit a national park, go to a new city, or fly to another continent.
  • Be a local tourist - Visit all of the famous places in the towns nearby you and live like a tourist.
  • Host a summer themed party- Hawaii themed parties work great in summer.
  • Learn a new skill- a foreign language and more!

Visit A New Place

Visiting a new place doesn't have to be scary. Being a tourist in a new place can come with many benefits, it will also have you feeling like a different person when you return. Some benefits to visiting a new place are that it is great for your mental health, you'll get more exercise as you will be doing lots of walking, you'll get to try new food, you won't run out of things to do, it will improve your confidence and self-esteem, will help you live longer, and lastly, will allow you to learn a new language.

Get Outdoors

Make the most of the sunny weather and force yourself into the great outdoors! Whether it's having a picnic, riding a bike, seeing friends and family, or going swimming. There are plenty of things you can do outside whilst the weather is nice. And not only can it be fun, but it can also improve your mental health massively. Because being outdoors in the sunshine has been proven to lower stress levels, blood pressure, and heart rate, while increasing your mood!

Plan Day Trips

Travelling is something most of us want to do more of, and there are so many wonderful destinations just waiting to be explored. The only issue is that you might not have enough time off work to be able to do a big trip. However, you should try and squeeze a one-day trip into your schedule at least occasionally. Now we know you may be thinking a one-day trip isn't enough time, but for some places, all you need is one day to explore and learn about new surroundings. So, if you live in the UK and need a desperate break, then why not take a day trip down to the Cotswolds that's nestled within a protected area of outstanding natural beauty and filled with rolling hills and quaint little villages just waiting to be explored all in one day.

Bungee Jumping

Extreme sports are not everyone's cup of tea, and bungee jumping is as extreme as it gets. However, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you must try, and here are a few reasons why. One of the main reasons people go bungee jumping is to face their fears head-on, and we don't just mean if you have a fear of heights, we're also talking about fears that you may have about life in general, and bungee jumping can be a great way to release those fears. Another benefit to bungee jumping is the adrenaline rush will truly make you feel alive, as well as allow you to venture out of your comfort zone, have a new perspective, and add some more purpose to your life!

Try A New Restaurant

Some people may say that dining out is a waste of money and not worth it. However, we couldn't disagree more. Trying out new food and going to different restaurants will help you gain knowledge about other cultures without the need to travel to foreign countries. Another reason eating out is so great is that it will allow you to taste good food and let your tastebuds do the talking for you. Personally, we think there is nothing better than going to a new restaurant, trying something you've never had before, whilst relaxing with a nice cold beverage surrounded by friends or family. But don't let the fear of trying a new restaurant stop you from going by yourself and enjoying some alone time too! Dining out with friends can be fun but you may miss out on the opportunity to try some delicious food!
