What will light your spark this year?
You may still be working your way through the remnants of the Christmas chocs, and haven’t got a clue what you want this year to hold. Often we don’t.
We might have vague plans or ideas of what we want to do (or need to do!). And that’s absolutely fine. Give yourself a break if you have got everything mapped out.
One idea I really like is the yearly list that writer Gretchen Rubin advocates. The plan is that you write a list of 22 things for 2022. This can be as big or as little as you want, and it can be a mixture of really important ‘must dos’ and fun things too.
The little niggly tasks that you need to get round to, or appointments that you’ve been putting off. Specific events that you want to attend. Books you want to read. Places you want to visit. Experiences you want to have.
It like a mini bucket list, with some accountability thrown in. It can be a good place to start if we want to get more organised. You might want to add a month or year next to each item. Or get specific things booked in your diary now.
And if you’re struggling with getting motivated, try a couple of the fun ones first and feel the flutter of achievement as you tick them off as done. Or book something fun in after you’ve completed one of the more challenging ones (love a bit of habit stacking!).
Whatever you choose, I hope that this year sparks more creativity and fun in your days.
