18 New Experiences in 2018

I want to do a lot of new things in 2018, but first… did you see my 2018 Goals and Word of the  Year post? If not, this post may not make as much sense. If you didn’t, my 2018 Word of the Year is NEW.

How cliche, right?

One part of being new means having NEW experiences. Here are 18 new experiences I want to do in 2018.

18 NEW Experiences in 2018 - A list of things to do by Aduke Schulist

Visit a place I’ve never been before
– I have a few in mind and they are all out of state.

Create a family vision board
– The kids will get involved with this. It’s always fun to see their ideas and goals for our family.

Hike a new trail
– There are some local ones I have never been to!

Try 18 new recipes
– This one should be easy enough!

Take a spin class
– I am dreading this one. Hard cycling isn’t a workout I enjoy. I’m more of a casual cycler.

Try aerial yoga
– I’m intrigued here, but so nervous! What if I fall on my face?!

Read a classic
– There are so many I’ve never read.

See a show
– Any recommendations?

Write a will
– Is this morbid? I really need to get this one done.

Plant some flowers
– My yard is so ugly. Plus, Abby’s 4-H Project is Gardening & Horticulture. This will help us both out.

Have a cookie party
– Mmm! Cookies! I love baking (and eating) cookies and love sharing them with other people, so I feel like this is a win all around and I’ll even get some new cookie recipes.

Learn meditation
– Guided meditation is probably where I will begin.

Get a massage
– I can feel the stress melting away now.

Start a compost pile
– It will probably end up as a chicken food pile.

Try a new restaurant
– A new BBQ place opened up here recently. It will be the first.

Paint something on canvas
– I’m thinking something holiday related so I don’t have to stare at it all year-long and critique my lack of artistic skills.

Climb a mountain
– A little mountain. There’s a mountain near here I’ve never climbed. It would totally count as my “Hike a new trail” goal too.

Play a new game with the family
– I really want to take the kids to an Escape Room, but will probably settle for a new board game. I’m not sure the younger ones would be able to get through an Escape Room.

What are some new experiences you want to have in 2018? Have you created a 2018 Bucket List?

  1. My husband and I did our wills 3 years ago and it is so nice to know that the kids are taken care of if something happens to us so I say go for that one! Your other goals are SO FUN! Ariel yoga is something I have never heard of but it sounds adventurous.

  2. Great list and great ideas think I may try some. The cookie party sounds like fun. Do get that will done, its never too soon and shows responsibility. I love hiking new trails and visiting news places. Looks like 2018 will be a good year for you.

  3. I love this. We try to do so much new each year but aren’t very planful about it. This year I want to borrow your idea of the family vision board. Then everyone can be a part of the process. Very exciting.

  4. Great idea for a post!! I have a few of the same things I probably need to make a To Do list for because it’s crazy how fast the year is already flying by. For example, I too need to do a Will – soon!

  5. It’s an excellent list of to-do things. I also create similar list every year. It looks hard to accomplish all things mentioned in the list, but I keep trying until I get that complete mark in front of each listed item.
