2017, she was alright, had her good moments but if we’re all honest, she was no 2018. 2018 is going to be YOUR year. It’s the year you’re going to make things happen. Live new experiences, chase new horizons, throw off the shackles, dance naked in the rain!
Ok, so maybe not so much naked dancing but you’re still going to dare to become the person you want to be, instead of the person your bank balance/job/family/mortgage say you have to be. And the fun starts HERE. 2018 has 52 weekends to fill full of life. So, what are you waiting for? Set new challenges and dive right in.
18 ‘New You’ Challenges for 2018
Dance on the Bar – Coyote Ugly Experience
Leave the wallflower behind and step into the spotlight, there’s no better place to start than dancing on a bar packed full of weekend party people? Professional choreography and a dance instructor.
Bring Back Girl Power – Record a Song
I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want, I want to grab my friends and make our own girl band single like we dreamed of back in the 90s. So what’s stopping you? Nothing!
That’s How You Roll – Roller Disco
Not all new challenges are life changing, some are just fun and a little bit crazy. So how about heading to a roller disco, purely because you love cheesy music and have never done it before?
Unleash Your Inner Sex Goddess – Burlesque
It’s not about flirtation, this is about power, becoming a strong, confident, beautiful performer in what is without doubt the sexiest art form of them all.
Live the Strictly Dream – Ballroom Dancing
You don’t have to go all the way to Blackpool to show off your twinkle toes. Ballroom dancing is really fashionable right now so grab a gal pal and partner up.
Big Bang Theory – Shoot a Gun
You don’t know why, but you’ve always wanted to fire a gun. Maybe it’s too many action movies, maybe you have Monday morning traffic ‘issues’ to work through? But it’s an itch only a big bang can cure.
Helen-fest! – Organise a Music Festival
You’ve always fancied being one of those people that ‘makes things happen’, well now you can have your own music festival (we’ll do all the hard work for you).
Hit New Heights – Climb the O2
“Oh, you went in the London Eye? That’s neat. Me? Oh, I climbed the 02!” Yeah you did, because you rock. You’ll overcome fears and this gives you a totally fresh viewpoint on what you can achieve.
Become a Survivor – Zombie Survival Training
If movies are to be believed (and after Happy Feet 2 we think they are) then it’s just a matter of time before the inevitable happens and zombie hordes arrive. You’d better be prepared.
Go Somewhere You Can’t Pronounce – Ljubljana
The last time you did any real travelling was your gap year. Well you go girl! Broaden those horizons and go somewhere you’d never even consider before like the gorgeous Slovenian capital.
Step Back in Time – Vintage Makeover
You’ve fancied it for ages but just haven’t had the guts. Well now’s your time. Enjoy a fab makeover with victory rolls, 40’s glamour and a professional photoshoot to capture the moment.
Get Scent! – Create Your Own Perfume
If Lady Gaga and Coleen Rooney can have their own fragrance, then isn’t it time you added your own smell of success? Create your very own signature fragrance to show the real you.
Go A Bit Potty – Pottery Workshop
Yes, you were totally addicted to BBC’s Throw Down. So get hands on and throw a few pots. There are venues across the UK offering taster sessions you can make something on your first attempt.
Join the Circus – Circus Skills
Yes, it’s a little bit Britain’s Got Talent but it’s a new talent you haven’t had… Until now! Will it come in useful at the next company board meeting? No, but your goddaughter will love you!
Do A Good Deed – Give Time to Charity
If you’ve never managed to get through an episode of DIY SOS without reaching for a tissue, then 2018 is your time to do good deed and help save the environment.
Become a Maneater – Dominatrix Lesson
Yep, it’s no more Tina Timid, you want to show your man exactly who’s boss and take charge in all kinds of unexpected new ways. “I said call me Madame!”
Brush Up Your Artwork – Life Drawing Class
“Is that a paintbrush in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?” Not just a chance to go back and pick up your GCSE art skills, the class also happens to have a hunky, naked male model.
Learn To Make Stuff – Craft Workshops
Glass baubles, fascinators, jewellery, glass beads, shoe workshop, you can even ‘pimp that penis’ (yes, it’s as hilarious and weird as it sounds), make 2018 the year you start learning new skills.
