What is a fall bucket list?

A bucket list is usually a list of achievements and experiences a person wishes to accomplish over their lifetime.

But you can utilize a bucket list for more than just lifetime milestones and challenges to complete before life is over.

Seasonal bucket lists like a fall bucket list, helps you to create goals and things to look forward to during any given season in your life.

How to make a bucket list?

For this fall season, I decided to make a fall bucket list to help me embrace and find joy in the colder months.

So, how do you make a bucket list?

it’s pretty easy actually.

You can create a page in your journal or if you’re feeling crafty, you can make a poster with a checklist of all the things you want to see, do and accomplish.

If you’re like me your journal is like a second brain; full of thoughts ideas, stray doodles, poems, and situational emotions.

Creating a seasonal bucket list can help you to visualize and stick to your goals this season. Choose activities that give you a sense of pleasure, nostalgia, fun, and achievement.

Adding a page to your journal for your bucket list is also a nice way to liven it up with fall colors, images, and even a little vision board.

What’s on my fall bucket list?

Go to a local farmer’s market During this harvest season, I hope to take advantage of all the fresh produce and see any new vendors that may pop up this season. I always love visiting the farmer’s markets but during holiday seasons like the fall they can have a much different feel, and some new seasonal treats to try.

Clean and declutter We usually associate seasonal cleaning with the spring, but honestly, the beginning of each new season is a great time to go through your spaces and things to let go of what you no longer want or need.

Make apple cider & sparkling apple cider I have never made apple cider before, but I thought it’d be fun to pick my own apples and then make apple cider at home with them.

Pumpkin carving While carving pumpkins can get a little messy, It is so fun to get some pumpkins with your friends, put on a spooky playlist and carve some pumpkins to decorate the front of your home.

Restore & Reset I have personally been running myself ragged with everything I feel I have to accomplish. Especially with college, running this blog and my wellness brand, and my other day-to-day tasks I can easily feel like my free time slips away from me which can make it a little harder to take the time I need for myself so I can restore and rest.

I recently learned in Buddhist philosophy it is believed that “Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.

With that in mind, a goal I have for this fall season ( and hopefully will continue) is to spend at least 1-2 hours with myself nightly indulging in some sort of self-care that makes me feel restored and replenished from my day so I can reset and begin fresh the next day.
