Five Achievable Bucket List Ideas for 2017

Bucket List Ideas for 2017

What do you want to do in life? Ok, now why aren’t you doing it?

There are resolutions, and then there are bucket lists—those things you just have to try at some point or another. But like resolutions, bucket list items should come in all shapes and sizes. Here are ten creative bucket list ideas for 2017 that will take you out of your routine.

Journal Every Morning

There’s nothing like starting the day off with a little self-reflection. Don’t set limits, but try to write every morning for as many days in a row as you can, even if it’s just a sentence.

Be a Tourist

It’s too easy to take for granted that which we see every day. Plan a staycation weekend where you explore all that there is to see in your own town. Eat out at local restaurants, take lots of photos and visit the attractions.

Write a Book

Start small and write a ten-page eBook on one of your favorite things. There are resources out there that will help you learn how to write and publish your book for free online.

Set Reading Goals

Whether you read a book a week, a chapter a day or a series in a year, it’ll be fun to make reading a part of your daily routine.

Organize a Picnic

Get some friends together and plan an elaborate picnic to welcome in the spring or summer. Collect blankets, pillows, candles, and prepare a delicious menu. The more extravagant, the more unforgettable!

And of course, if you need a new car, stop by Babylon Honda in West Babylon!

Tips for Winter Car Maintenance

Winter can be taxing. It’s hard to get out of bed and face the cold weather. The nights are longer, and the wind is harsher. But it’s not just hard on humans—it’s hard on cars, too. That’s why we suggest you follow our advice for winter car maintenance to keep your vehicle feeling good all the way to spring.

Keep Up On the Fluids

Coolant is an extremely important ingredient to a car’s inner workings. It keeps the engine at a healthy temperature, so in the winter coolant keeps the engine from freezing. Check your coolant levels and make sure there’s plenty in there to get the job done.

It’s equally important to keep a constant watch on both your gas tank and your wiper fluid. Both of these fluids should stay topped off throughout the winter. Your wiper fluid will help wash away the salt and dirt from the roads for better visibility. Meanwhile, keeping a full tank of gas prevents ice from forming in your fuel pump. Plus, if you get stranded for some reason, you’ll want plenty of gas to keep your car running and keep you warm and safe.

Keep an Eye On the Tires

You should also be aware of your tires all through the winter season. Watch both their pressure and their tread. Both of these elements will affect the way that your car drives in snow and ice. If pressure is low, it can screw up the alignment and cause others issues. As with anything, it’s better to stay on top of maintenance rather than clean up a bigger mess later on.
