This is one of the many reasons to create a bucket-list with fun, once-in-a-lifetime things to do and experience. You can start small or big, make sure you have enough time to plan so you are able to achieve everything on your list. Write down things you remember at the moment to not forget later when you’re ready to get started on your list. You should revisit your wants and figure out if they are still applicable in your life. After completing something you have been wanting to do, you are left with a sense of achievement.

Live a Memorable Life
When writing your bucket-list, you can include anything you want to accomplish! Travel, hobbies, and relationships are the most common topics that people add to their list. The moment we are able to travel again, consider going to a country or city that you have always wanted to go to! Are there any fun hobbies you have been wanting to do but too afraid to?
This is the chance to write them down and develop a plan on how to cross them off your list. For the relationship part of this does not have to mean only a love relationship. This is your chance to work on relationships with friends and family! Because of the pandemic, in-person human interaction is essential but try and make those connections virtually.
