Go Someone You’ve Always Wanted to Go “live a life happily”


  • Plan a vacation to that destination you’ve always dreamed about visiting.
  • If you can’t afford that, research cheap ways to travel—staying in hostels, volunteering abroad, or transporting someone else’s car, for example.
  • Issue yourself a “life ticket.” According to Tiny Buddha contributor Jamie Hoang, we find ways to pay tickets when we get them because we have to. Think of travel in that same way—and be resourceful to make it happen.
  • Take a weekend road trip to somewhere close you’ve always wanted to visit.
  • Write down your three favorite hobbies and for each, a place you’ve always wanted to try(i.e.: a beautiful beach an hour away for surfing). Plan to go this weekend.
  • Invite friends to a restaurant, bar, or other establishment you’ve wanted to try, but have avoided in favor or familiarity. (Once you invite other people, you’ll be less inclined to change your mind last-minute!)
  • If you’ve avoided going to a new spot because it’s expensive, start a “fun night” savings jar today, and make trying that place a priority.
  • Make a list of fun “staycation” ideas (for daytrips in your area). Schedule at least two of them for the next month.
  • If there’s a conference you’ve always wanted to attend, book your ticket for next year, or see if you can volunteer there to get free or discounted attendance.
  • Plan some type of creativity-driven travel project—once a week or even month, take photos, draw, or write in a new spot you’ve wanted to visit
