10 Things To Do In 2017

Despite a few hiccups in 2016, I actually found that it was one of my best years and after such a good Christmas, I feel super motivated and determined to make 2017 the best year yet. I have compiled a list of things I want to do next year and I hope you'll find some inspiration in the list too. 

See A Performance Live | One of the best things I did this year was watch a comedian- Russell Kane- live and next year I've made it my mission that I will see a couple more too. Why not watch a Panto next Christmas, see your favourite singer or even just see if there are any live performances in your area? 

Learn A New Skill | Learning sign language has been on my to-do list for ages now and I know I need to make it a priority in 2017. Whether it's learning more about the stars, playing an instrument or even just learning how to do your hair in a plait differently, it's always great to learn a new skill. 

Embrace Every Season | Although there are times throughout the year where I feel in a bit of a lull like the time between Christmas and New Year, I want to make the effort to embrace every season. Photographing the changing months, going to a fete in the Summer or a lambing event in the Spring are all ways to make the most of the seasons. It can be super easy to spend a bank holiday indoors doing nothing or never venture outside on a weekend, so a personal goal of mine is to make sure everyday counts. 

Grow A Plant | Growing a plant is so satisfying and keeping it alive is even more rewarding. If you fancy reminiscing about your childhood you could grow cress for your sandwiches or If you cook quite a lot maybe you'll want to grow a chilli plant. 

Set Yourself Monthly Tasks | If you run a blog, I often do this to keep things fresh. Whether it's setting yourself the task of daily blogging in January, posting pink themed photographs on Instagram in March or even wanting to gain ten followers on Twitter throughout June, creating tasks for you to complete is a great way to motivate yourself. I want to make sure I'm setting them in my daily life too. For example I want to finish the course I'm on by the end of February and make sure I complete a large volunteer task every month. 

Go To A Place You've Always Wanted To Go | Whether it's exploring a new country or, like me, going back to the Harry Potter studio tours, going to a place you've always wanted to go is a great way to find new places. I personally want to explore more of Wales and the countryside, snapping away with my camera and hopefully capturing a few animals in the misty mornings. 

Switch Your House Around | Sprucing up your homeware doesn't have to cost a penny and sometimes switching items is a great way to motivate you when you're in the Winter slump. Add plants in bare places, stack books on a shelf and switch your rugs around to fit your home. 

Start A Scrap Book | We've already started one, but unfortunately we haven't found the time to sit down and put in everything we've collected over the past year. In 2017 I want to make more of an effort to get creative and I think scrapbooking is a great activity for anyone to do too. Learning to knit is also something I want to learn over the next year too - I think I might start with something simple! 

Volunteer | Throughout 2016 I volunteered and it was the best decision I've ever made. It adds to my CV, has given me great opportunities and has made me feel super confident. I always scour Do-It for new volunteer jobs and I couldn't recommend it enough. 

Read More | I got back into reading this year and I want to make sure that I continue my nightly read for next year too. I would recommend writing down 10 books you want to read in 2017, including one thriller, one childhood favourite and one that will make you laugh! 

What are you planning to do in 2017?
