Make a List & Let It Motivate You

Make a list of the places you hope to explore in 2021. Chances are it’ll be a pretty big list. That’s OK. Take some time to narrow it down to a few places you really want to check out. Use your list as motivation – motivation for those rough days when you need something to look forward to and accountability for when you need a reminder to make room for awesome in your life.

Embrace Spontaneity

Make room in your mind for spontaneity. Don’t wait until the perfect moment to do the things you love. If a hole in your schedule opens up in an otherwise busy stretch of life, seize on it and take that weekend trip you’ve been meaning to take.
