What better way to start the year than to plan for it to be enriching and meaningful!
Creating a list of goals can be inspiring and add a sense of value and purpose. Make it personal for the person are caring for by setting aside a special time to create the list together. Add music and a favorite drink or snack to enhance the activity. Create an on-going list and post it somewhere it can be seen, as a way to add importance to his or her special ideas. Using colorful post-it notes gives you flexibility to make it work for you and it adds fun color for additional sensory stimulation.
A few ideas may be:
- See a documentary about a favorite animal or place.
- Schedule a “Lunch and Library” outing to nurture socialization and intellectual stimulation.
- Organize that kitchen drawer will “clear some clutter” and create a meaningful activity.
- Take a walk by the lake.
- Make a gratitude list.
- Bake my favorite cookies.
- Write a memoir.
Have fun planning exploring meaningful goals and enhance personal connections at the same time. Looking for more fun activities to add to your list? Visit www.joyfulmomentscards.net to learn more!
