16 New Things to do in 2016.

True or False: The winter season can be one of the most uninspiring time of the year? For me, it’s often true rather than false, and I typically try to get to a warmer destination to break up the months a little bit. Since we are a couple of weeks into the new year already, I’m finding myself in a bit of a funk and running out of things to do or to motivate myself to starting – it’s always so tempting to snuggle back into my PJ, sip hot chocolate, and Netflix all weekend long.

I’ve put together a quick list of things that I want to do or start doing this year, and hope this will inspire you to take action and re-invigorate this winter season!


  1. Travel to at least 1 new city/country this year! It doesn’t have to be expensive: Be a tourist in your own city or go to a place you’ve never been to before
  2. Read more books. Here are great recommendations from Goodreads, and Time Magazine (2015 List)
  3. Pick up, and/or join a recreational or competitive sport team for the entire season
  4. Pick up a new hobby and keep it up for at least 6 months
  5. Do a season-related outdoor activity: go skiing in the winter, camping in the summer
  6. Learn and master 2 main course and 2 dessert recipes
  7. Successfully do a Pinterest DIY (and that you’re proud of showing off!)
  8. Start a blog, and find your niche
  9. Host a theme party/get together with your besties or your siblings every couple of months
  10. Repurpose or upcycle your old clothing / furniture / books
  11. Repaint / re-decorate / re-furnish your bedroom/apartment
  12. Try hot yoga
  13. Create a memory box and write down your favourite memories throughout the year
  14. Learn a language
  15. Catch up with high school / university / former co-workers
  16. Volunteer at a local charity or volunteer abroad (Learn about my Volontouring tip in Ghana here)
