2020 was a bit of a write-off, but 2021 doesn’t need to be the same. If you find yourself feeling a bit stuck in a rut, why not think of some things you can do this year that you can tick off your bucket list? It is always good to have something to aim for in life and this is well worth it as they are likely to be things you have always wanted to do. If you are looking for some items to tick off your bucket list this year, then we have put together a few ideas for you to try.

  • Get your business idea off the ground

If you have always wanted to start your own business but never got round to it, then why not make 2021 your year? It can always be easy enough to come up with an excuse not to do something, perhaps because you’re feeling nervous about it, but don’t let this get in your way. Think of what your business idea is and how you can execute it. Put steps in place of how you can get it off the ground, from making social media accounts to creating a website. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or opinions of others too!

  • Go on a road trip with friends

A road trip with friends is something everyone needs to do at least once in their lives. Plan out your route before you go, pack plenty of snacks and you’re ready to go! It is a good idea to prepare ahead for where you will stay and eat just in case you end up somewhere quite remote or the accommodation gets booked up. If you get into any trouble when driving, be sure to speak with a skilled car accident lawyer who can help you with your case.

  • Spend a night under the stars

There is something magical about spending a night under the stars. Either head alone or with yourself to somewhere which is quiet and has a great view of the sky. This could even be in your backyard! Spend the night listening to the chirping of crickets and the silence of the world around you while gazing up at the beautiful sights in the sky.

  • Eat somewhere you have always wanted to try

If you have always wanted to eat somewhere but never done it then make this your year. It could be you’ve always wanted to have a Michelin star dinner, or that you have always said about trying that little Italian near you but never gone. Book a date in as soon as you can and make sure you go all out on your visit. Order the food you want, the nice bottle of wine, and let yourself really enjoy it. You won’t regret it!

These are just a few ideas that you can tick off your bucket list in 2021. What are the activities you are most looking forward to trying? Let me know in the comments below.

 

How to give your garden an uplift

During rainy and cold days, the last thing you want to do is go outside to your garden. However, getting fresh air is essential for us to feel good about ourselves and our bodies. That’s why I love being outside so much!

I would prefer if I could enjoy my garden no matter if the sun is shining or it’s raining or snowing. You can see how excited I was when I found out about Designer Shade Solutions’ retractable roofs. Designer Shade Solutions are retractable roofs in London UK specialists who create retractable roofs also known as modern pergolas with a retractable and tilting louvered roof.

The New York Times shared some tips on how to improve your outdoor space, mentioning that “every outdoor space has its strengths, so embrace yours. You can play up a large outdoor space by using plants, pathways, and furniture to divide it into separate areas serving different purposes.”

What better way to improve your garden than by adding a retractable pergola? Don’t just take it from me! Adventures of a Yorkshire Mum also recommends adding a retractable pergola to create an outdoor retreat to improve your garden space, commenting that you will “make the most out of your garden all-year-round by creating an outdoor retreat that you can enjoy, no matter the weather.”

Modern pergolas offer shade and protection from the elements, as well as privacy, a bit of luxury, and the perfect way to define spaces in your garden. If you’ve always loved the look of traditional pergolas but never went for it as it didn’t give you enough opportunities to enjoy your garden, modern pergolas will! Their retractable and tilting roof can be easily closed when the weather turns south and can be opened if the weather is nice.

Baby Budgeting explains in a recent blog post that these retractable roof pergolas can be installed in a variety of ways, including “as an extension to your current living space to bring the outside in or as a standalone structure in your garden, the perfect centrepiece for any outside space, if I do say so myself.”

To further improve your garden space, these modern pergolas can be combined with heating, lighting, and side glass screens to create the most incredible garden outdoor retreat that you can use rain or shine. Lylia Rose shared that she was also a big fan of these pergolas, mentioning “Personally, I think they are amazing! It’s been a challenge of ours in spring to create an outdoor living space that is perfect to use not only in good weather but bad weather too.”

Stay healthy this winter with hand sanitizer

*Colllaborative post.

Self-care is one of the most important things to do. It helps maintain a healthy relationship with your mind and body. Forbes recently shared an article about the importance of self-care, including starting easy habits for a clean body and mind, from eating healthy to exercising or simply taking a break when you need it. I believe that staying healthy is a big part of self-care and, with that in mind, hand hygiene plays a big role in staying healthy.

Effective hand washing, not just slap-water-and-go kind of hand washing, is highly important. By washing your hands, you reduce the chances of getting sick and prevent the spread of infections and illnesses to others. So, by washing your hands regularly, you don’t only help yourself but you are also helping others. If you are out and about and you have no access to running water and soap, hand sanitizer is the go-to.

Ocean Free is a UK hand sanitiser manufacturer and an ideal addition to your purse, backpack, or pocket to ensure you can always keep your hands clean and fresh on-the-go. They have a variety of fragrance-free hand sanitizers and scented hand sanitizers to meet all needs.

Ocean Free has liquid and hand sanitisers. According to Adventures of a Yorkshire Mum, “choosing the right-hand sanitizer consistency has to do with your personal requirements. For spray bottles and spray dispensers, liquid hand sanitizer will be the best choice whilst hand sanitizer gel would be better suited for day-to-day, on-the-go usage.”

If you are using hand jewellery and need to sanitise your hands, remember to remove the jewellery or perhaps simply keep it at home. As this article on the Diary of a Jewellery Lover mentions, it’s important to part from jewellery during our current times to ensure you maintain good hand hygiene. She added, “if you can’t part from your jewellery, remember to always clean it with soap and water when cleaning your own hands. Taking it off while cleaning hands and then putting it back won’t cut it, as might mean that you’ve decontaminated your hands again.”

Staying healthy will help you enjoy life to the fullest. If you have kids, it’s also important for them to stay healthy. If you are wondering if hand sanitizer is safe for children, I’d recommend reading Let Them Be Small article about the safety of hand sanitizer for children, where she mentions that the main thing to ensure hand sanitizer is safe is to promote its safe use and supervise children when using hand sanitizer.
