Taking the time to sit down and write your bucket list is something we never seem to get around to.
But as we start to plan ahead and make the big decisions about retirement and downsizing we are also starting to think about the things we have always dreamed of doing. There are so many things to look forward to once those big decisions have been made.
The whole point of creating your list is to maximise every moment of our existence and live our life to the fullest. It’s a reminder of all the things we want to achieve in our time here, so that instead of pandering our time in pointless activities, we are directing it fully toward what matters to us.
From the research we have conducted with our potential and existing residents, travelling around Australia is one of the top priorities on your bucket list. And why not? We have everything here. On your way around the country you can snorkel the Barrier Reef, go ballooning over the Barossa, walk one of the trails in the Blue Mountains, cruise the Kimberleys, visit Wineglass Bay or go to a show at the Sydney Opera House.
Some of the other top bucket list items are to travel the world, learn a language, learn to dance, run a marathon, take up a new sport, become a mentor, learn a strategy game, sing in front of an audience, achieve your ideal weight or become a volunteer.
Being active and learning new things are life enriching so take out a pen and paper and start writing your list today!
