9 Ideas To Make 2019 Great

9 Ideas To Make 2019 Great!

We all love the festive tradition of setting goals for the year ahead. Popular goals are to get fitter, cut down on alcohol and stop smoking. If you’re bored of having the same goal every year, here’s a few simple ideas that might help you to enjoy a happy & successful 2019!

Make a ‘bucket list’

Swim with dolphins, jump out of a plane at 10,000 feet, publish a book…Whatever things you want to do in your life, don’t wait for that ‘perfect time’ to begin. Make your bucket list not because you are dying but because you want to live! There are even dedicated websites full of tips and ideas of how to create & complete your ideal bucket list.

Try meditation

Life appears to be more pressured these days, so why not reduce your stress levels by trying out meditation & relaxation exercises? It just takes a few minutes a day and can be refreshing, relaxing and a simple yet enjoyable activity.

Spend more time outdoors

Spending time in nature makes you happier; it boosts your immune system, and can even make you more creative. Get off the sofa, turn off the TV and mobiles and try going for walks in the countryside.


We Brits love a holiday so try setting a goal to visit a country you’ve always wanted to see.


There are few things more satisfying than giving to those less fortunate. Volunteering can give you a sense of purpose, increase your self-esteem, and make you happier.

Commit to start a hobby 

Keep your life interesting and add some more purpose by starting a new pastime, preferably something that interests you.

Be more grateful

Apparently, studies show that gratitude can make you 25% happier, overcome adversity, help sleep, and reduce stress. Give it a try to be more grateful in 2019.

Write a business plan

If you’ve ever thought about starting your own business, make 2019 the year that you start taking action. The first step to take is to write a business plan. Once you get your ideas down on paper, you’ll be that much more motivated to turn it into reality.

Read more books

If you’re not in the habit of reading regularly, you might be missing out. Reading has many benefits including mental stimulation, vocabulary expansion, improved focus and concentration and tranquillity but to name a few. So set yourself a target to read in 2019.
