I just wrapped up my spring bucket list and as we head toward the summer season I thought it would be fun to put together a new list of must-do items for the upcoming months of June through August.

This summer’s list is one that I’m looking forward to because these next few months might offer a little breather at work.

Here are some of the things I’m looking forward to:

  1. Dig into some young adult book series. For my annual box set challenge this year, I assigned myself three young adult series over the summer months: The Summer I Turned Pretty (romance), The Naturals Collection (mystery), and The Life as We Knew It Collection (dystopian). I’m really looking forward to my summer reading this year!
  2. Take an extended vacation. My goal is to take two consecutive weeks off this summer, similar to what I did last year. I’m guessing this time will be a mix of personal projects and rest – either way, I’m excited to have the opportunity to step away from work for a little while.
  3. Design a new coach training class. I mentioned previously that I’ve been researching neurodiversity as a side project for my coach training program and I want to start putting together a new course. This will involve creating a syllabus, but also writing some new content for my coach training manual, which I originally drafted in late 2019.
  4. Complete 6k minutes in my Peloton app. This is a repeat challenge from last year since I enjoyed pushing myself to get in some extra movement over the summer months. I expect to do this mostly through walking, biking, jogging, rowing, meditation, and yoga.
  5. Visit with family. I have some family coming to Denver over the summer months that I haven’t seen in a while. They were able to find a rental just down the street from my house, so it will be fun to have them in town for a few days.
  6. Complete my Restful July tradition. Each year, I take July off of content creation so that I can revisit my goals for the blog, the podcast, and YouTube. I’ll be completing this tradition again this year.

What’s on your bucket list for the upcoming season?
