Making a Summer Bucket List to Help You Reach Your Goals

Woohoo! It is finally summer! How are your yearly goals coming? Do you need to refresh your memory and create something new to help you achieve your goals for the year? A summer bucket list can help you do just that. :)

Making a Summer Bucket List to Help You Reach Your Goals

Today, I want to give you a little bit of inspiration for your summer bucket list by showing you what mine looks like and how I am going to achieve some of my yearly goals (and some fun summer goals!) by using it. I hope that you like it!

A summer bucket list can be made in a ton of different ways. You could have a simple bullet point list in your bullet journal, or an elaborate hand-drawn image of each goal next to a checkbox.

Your summer bucket list can look however you want it to!

How I Set up my Summer Bucket List

I decided that I wanted to use graph paper for my summer bucket list even though I use a planner because I like making layouts similar to those that would be in a bullet journal.

Then I created the top half of the first page with the summer bucket list header and the bucket doodle. 

I added washi tape to the sides of the pages because I have seen people do this in their bullet journals to make the pages with washi tape on the edges easier to find. It also adds some fun decoration to my summer bucket list, which I really like!

Then I started adding some of my goals for the summer. I also checked my yearly goal list to see how I was doing with those goals. If I saw a goal that I haven't been working on very much, then I would add it to my summer bucket list to motivate me to finish now before the year is almost over.

Below are a few goals which you might add to your summer bucket list

  • Go swimming
  • Get 10,000 steps every day (See what motivates me to do this here.)
  • Eat fruit and veggies every day
  • Try something new
  • Learn calligraphy or hand lettering
  • Go sugar-free
  • Become vegan
  • Read some new books
  • Start a blog
  • Do a craft project
  • Go outside in the sunshine daily

Of course, you will have to make some of the projects above a little bit more specific, so that you can actually tell if you reach them or not. For "learn calligraphy or hand lettering" you might put "practice calligraphy twice a week" and then put a tracker to make sure that you do.

Add a little bit of inspiration and motivation to help you reach your goals too! I add little doodles next to some of my goals to help make my pages seem a little bit more filled up. I started with a blue and red summer theme, but then I couldn't resist adding pink too! :)

For this layout, I used gel pens, a black sharpie pen for most of the writing, stickers, washi tape, and markers.

I added small trackers next to each goal that needs to be tracked or done multiple times, so I can tell when it will be finished.

At the bottom of the last page, I added a progress tracker, so I can see how much I have done so far and how much I have left to do. Yes, I know. 46 goals is a lot to have! :)
