But have you wondered how we can make a difference in our lives by changing our thoughts? Okay, I don’t want to confuse you here. All I want to say is, let the old style of planning your life and making it exciting settle down. Look for new and fresh ideas. Or you can do something you haven’t done before, even if it has been a long-awaited plan.

Something You Haven’t Done Before? Why Wait Now? Create A List!

So, this year don’t think twice, just set out and try to bring joy not only in your life but in others’ lives as well. We waste a lot of time wondering how to bring changes in society or how we can enjoy life when we are on a tight budget. But, this time, start enjoying your life with whatever funds you have.

Don’t postpone your plans. Once you set the ball rolling, you will come up with new ideas to keep your spirits high.

Well then, without further ado, let’s jump to the new ideas that you can take up in the year 2024.

1. I stay at your place; you stay at mine- Home Swapping

Maybe you have heard about this idea of swapping homes because it was initiated in the 90s. But now it is the trendiest activity all over the world. People these days focus more on emotional happiness than monetary benefits.

I believe it is a positive change in people’s mindset, and home swapping is an exhilarating idea for a vacation. Also, it may be something that you haven’t done before. Now, I’ll explain why it is the best idea. Not everybody has a house in different countries, but they can avail this idea of visiting a different country by simply swapping their homes.

How to do this? There are various apps and websites like SwapOurHome or LoveHomeSwap that enable the idea of vacationing in a different city or country of your choice. So, what are you waiting for? Go, swap your home and enjoy your life in a different location.

2. Get outdoorsy- Camping

Okay, I agree it is a common idea, but how many people enjoy camping? Or have you ever been camping? If you don’t know, let me tell you, it is an amazing experience to sleep in nature surrounded by greenery and amazing landscapes.

Of course, there are some risks involved when you stay in the open. But you can hire a guide or a local to help you deal with risks without any hassle.

Well, is there any fun if there isn’t any risk? So, if you like jungle safari, or to explore the wildlife, or to connect with nature, then try camping. You need not plan a complete camping trip; a two or three-days trip will give you a wonderful experience.

Also, camping is not only for the youngsters even the elderly can enjoy going on camps. Hire an experienced tour guide.

3. Let’s greenify- Plant trees or take up gardening

One best thing that lockdown did to the world- it led to a significant drop in the pollution rate. But now that we are well past over it and  have resumed working on a regular scale, it is our duty to restore the world with pollution-free air and plant more trees to curb global warming.

Planting more trees in your surrounding must be something that you haven’t done before. Maybe you might have planted saplings during your schooling years, but post that, how many times did you plant a tree again? Or you watered a garden? If your answer is no then, go ahead get some herbs or bushes, and plant them in your area.

You can also design a small garden and grow vegetables and flowers around your house. If you live in an apartment, then build a garden on your deck. Make gardening your new hobby, it is soothing and fulfilling to your soul.

4. Excite the taste buds- Learn a new recipe.

Be it a man or woman, you must know how to survive. And for survival, you should know how to cook. So, if all your life you haven’t cooked, try making a new dish for yourself. It may not sound fun in the beginning, but once you get in the kitchen, you will experience a rush of ideas.

It will give you a thrilling experience once you start preparing for a recipe. And what if the dish turns out super delicious? You will be motivated to cook regularly. Try doing something that you haven’t done before in 2024, and it can be anything that you have been longing to do.

5. Woof woof… take me home- Rescue an animal or a stray. It will be definitely something you haven’t done before

If you are not a pet fan, then it is okay, you need not take a pet home, but you can at least feed it. So, the aim is if you find a stray animal or a puppy without its mother running around looking for food, then make an effort to fulfill its needs.

Rescuing does not only mean taking the rescued animal to your home. You can contact animal care and help get an animal a safe place to live. It only takes a kind heart and a helping hand to rescue an animal in pain and distress.

Be that change and experience the change once, and I bet you will feel an inexpressible satisfaction. It will be definitely something that you haven’t done before.

6. Travel while you work- Take up a job that will not be a hindrance in traveling

Many people during the pandemic and post-pandemic chose to work from home because it was less time-consuming (commute time saved), you had the freedom to choose your work schedule, and there was limited distraction.

But if you wish to have a well-balanced life, then take up a job that will allow you to travel more. If you aren’t a travel freak, then pick up a hobby that you love to engage in during your spare time. This will motivate you to stay happy, and you will gradually move away from negative thoughts. It is a way through to do something that you haven’t done before.

7. Go share your knowledge- Start teaching for free

It is just an idea; if you love sharing knowledge, then give online tuitions to people or students who lack money. You can also start a YouTube channel or a podcast to share your knowledge with people who are looking out for some guidance or solution.

The aim should be to give away free knowledge to the less privileged yet seeking to grow. The universe says the one whom you are seeking will eventually find you. So, keep seeking and looking for what you want, you will have it someday for sure.

8. Become someone’s voice- contribute towards social service. It could be something you haven’t done before

We all hear bad experiences about other people. How they have struggled to make life, or to make money, or some other mentally disturbing experiences as well. But if you have the guts to bring about a change in society, then buckle up and raise your voice.

Not many people manage to bring positive changes in society. But if it is something that you haven’t done before, then take the first step and come to someone’s aid. You need not offer financial help if you don’t have a sufficient bank balance. But you can be someone’s voice and show them the right path to achieve whatever the victim wants to.
