18 Things To Do in 2018

Thursday, 4 January 2018

Happy New Year!

To say 2017 was interesting would be an understatement. It seems like every year, we're descending into madness or rising up to maintain our sanity. I assume 2018 will be no different. The same fears, but with a hopeful mindset we promote with every new year.

To start us off, here are 18 things to do in 2018!

1. Go on an adventure! Preferably outdoors with some sun.

2. Find a sport you enjoy. A bit of beginner's yoga or boxing each week can start something new. 

3. Read more. Immerse yourself in fantasy books or political articles. There is power in reading.

4. Ask questions you want the answers to. It's better to learn the truth now than live in the uncertain.

5. Find people to love, to talk, and to feel. They don't have to necessarily be one person.  

6. Dance in your bedroom alone, sway to the rhythm of your heart and love how stupid you look. 

7. Buy that cute top that looks good on you. It hugs your silhouette and makes you feel beautiful.

8. Waste time looking outside the window, watch cars pass by, and imagine the passengers' lives. They must be so cool.

9. Do something that scares and excites you. Accomplishing it will feel amazing. 

10. Limit your bad habits. You don't have to remove them completely, just start slow. 

11. Adjust your lifestyle slowly (if you're unhappy). Wake up earlier, cut out junk food, run every other day.

12. Limit your 'no's' so they mean more, and say 'yes' often so you experience more. 

13. Compliment people. Tell that girl her dress is pretty or the boy that his smile is beautiful. 

14. Give advice when approached. It means they trust your judgement, even if you have to repeat the same advice over and over again. 

15. Love without boundaries, and apologise with care. Feelings are complex and fickle, but we need them. 

16. Be better than you think you are.

17. Forgive yourself, you can't keep hating yourself. 

18. Look forward to the future, and make most of it. 

Late nights and emotional instability makes me a pseudo-intellectual, sentimental writer. As you can tell. For more insipid things, you can read 17 Things to Do in 2017 and 16 Things to Do in 2016. Both overdramatic pieces in their own right. 

Regardless, I hope this provides some inspiration to what you will do in 2018. As long as we do. So long as we are still breathing, still surviving and still rising, I think we'll be alright.

so what will you do in 2018?
