Back-to-school time is right around the corner. The new school year is a time of transition. It often feels like a new beginning, much like New Year’s in January.
This is the perfect time to build a bucket list. A Healthy Bucket List, that is!
Our Healthy Bucket List poster helps your students or clients choose goals to create their own Healthy Bucket List using simple changes that have a big impact over time. Here are some teaching tips to go along with it:
- In the classroom:
- Let the class vote on which Healthy Bucket List goals they want to work on each week, month, or year.
- Have kids of all ages create their own version of the Healthy Bucket List using markers, crayons, pictures cut out of magazines, etc. (Adults would enjoy this activity, too!)
- On social media:
- Introduce the Healthy Bucket List concept and ask followers to build and share their own list.
- Post about your own Healthy Bucket List goal – what you’re going to do and how it turns out.
- In the office:
- Display the poster in your waiting room so clients can ponder the simple goals that add up to a healthier life.
- Let clients vote by putting small sticky notes on the items they plan to add to their bucket lists.
