Setting Your Intention for the Year Ahead.
The theme of the month for January is INTENTION, and if you missed the first post of the year, then you can catch up HERE.
What is an intention? In short, it’s a daily thoughtful act used to design a life you truly enjoy. It’s about being mindful, living in the moment, and focusing on the now.
I’ve found myself scrolling past all the New Year; New You posts this year at great speed which is strange for me as I normally gravitate towards them with gusto. Not setting any goals, shying away from the resolution craze, and embracing a more relaxed start to the New Year is a concept I’m beginning to appreciate.
However, there are many areas of my life that require a tweak or two. I let my health slide the second half of last year, and my gluten-free plan took the brunt of self-sabotage. I intend to get back on track with this. Did you spot that word – intend!
Setting intentions means we aren’t beating ourselves up if we fail, it simply means we are willing to give it go and see what happens.
Here are a few top tips when setting your intentions:
- Keep them positive
- Make sure they can grow and evolve as you do
- Don’t think long term – just set an intention for now
- Be patient with yourself
And here are a few intentions that are worth setting this year:
- I intend to meditate every day
- I intend to make someone smile every day
- I intend to forgive others and myself
- I intend to lead an authentic life
- I intend to manifest happiness
Can you add to this list?
From a life/work balance perspective, I’ve also set the following intentions for myself this year.
“I intend to write with confidence in my abilities.”
“I intend to manifest the opportunities I need to succeed.”
