101 NEW Things To Do this Year

It’s a NEW YEAR! Actually – it’s a NEW decade! It’s time to do some new and fun things and make this year the best year yet! I’ve listed out 101 NEW Things To Do this Year! Why not make this year a year filled with things that you’ve been wanting to do. I’ve always had a running list in my head of “must dos” and “need to try” – I just haven’t done them yet. I’m changing that this year and I hope you do, too!

101 New Things To Try This Year


I wanted to put together a list of 101 NEW things to do this year because I feel like at the beginning of EVERY new year, we’re always making lists of things that we want to do. We are so READY on January 1st to go crazy with the new year, but sometimes the feelings fizzle out once it gets going. I don’t want that to happen to me OR to you! I wanted to come up with ideas that we could all do year round, not just now!

I also wanted to come up with some ideas that would work for everyone. Not everything on this list is going to speak to you and that’s OK! These are just idea starters for YOU! These are hopefully getting you excited for the year ahead and inspired to do something NEW and something FUN in your life. I also tried to add things that would be good for kids, too. I feel that it’s important to bring our family into as much as we can, too!

Most important thing is to have FUN this year! I’m all about doing anything I can to change things up and add some new things into our life! I’m just really excited about seeing this list and trying to get through everything that would work for me and my family. With the NEW Year, there’s always time to try NEW things! The best part? You can start this ANYTIME!
