Much like last year, the weeks already seem to be flying by. Get ahead on planning whether it’s a family holiday or everyday activities such as getting outside for some exercise. Start this year differently, get organised and accomplish everything on your 2022 bucket list. Here are some tips to plan ahead so you can soak up every moment and create life long memories.

1. Start brainstorming your bucket list ahead of time.

Have your family or friend group write down all their ideas. After a loose list has been created, you can divide the activities into different categories:


  • Pumpkin picking
  • Picnic in the park
  • Easter egg hunt


  • Road trip
  • Family holiday 
  • Travelling

2. Use you monthly calender to add big events

Map out time to take off work, plan around the school holidays and figure out the best time to take a trip. When everyone finds room in their schedule, block off those days and start planning!
3. Map out activities
Organise your activitiesby season. Avoid disappointing weather and cancelled plans by planning activities by season. Planning ahead will help you get the most out of your activities, whether that’s inviting friends and family along to share the experience with or just to give you extra time to prepare for the weather!
4. Fill in easy planning activities.
Now that the big events are scheduled, you can choose and spread out day events. Spreading out your activities gives you more time to plan and allows you to save and budget more accordingly!
5. Have fun!
Whether you’re planning the trip of a lifetime or just looking to spend more time with loved ones, a new year is a fresh start, time to reset and enjoy life.
