How To Create Your New Year Intentions And Actually Achieve Them!
With your past 2021 year not in mind, let’s refresh this new year with achieve-able goals. I always try to create resolutions each new year and they never seem to stick (most likely due to my forgetfulness). But after reviewing changes I wanted to create in my own life and really relating to Jen Atkin’s IG story on creating intentions rather than resolution, it didn’t seem so scary to pull off. Here’s how you can too:
Start in a realistic mindset
As much as you want to conquer massive life goals (which you absolutely still can, you go superstar) in this new year, start off with intentions that is practical for your self to achieve without jumping over bridges.
As for me, I wanted to try to stop drinking alcohol for health reasons, but the thought of not having a BABE can of rosé at a social occasion makes me really sad! So as a result I’m starting off small, I am keeping off aggressive hard liquors (which is perfect for me because the thought of hard liquor makes me sick), and just sticking to an occasional beer or wine.
Creating a realistic list of your 2022 intentions not only makes you feel better once achieving them but it also doesn’t seem as scary to look at, you know you can do it with just a small change.
Write down your resolutions
Don’t know where to start? Try writing down this template above, inspiration provided by the inspiring Jen Atkin via her IG Stories.
Once writing down the template or even creating your own, it’s time to just brain dump all the intentions you would like to accomplish this year. The categories make it simpler for you to divide your thoughts into detail with also writing down your truth. Whether you would like to keep this list to yourself or share it with others, this is for YOU.
Find an intentions buddy
Whether it is your best friend, significant other, or even a life coach, it is always nice to have someone to hold you accountable for achieving your goals. Share your ideas or have them do it along with you, but remember it is you that is going to make these intentions! So make the best of this exercise and try to evaluate at the end of the year of all your achievements, the big and the small!
Wow, your site is beautiful! This is also such a great post, especially with the new year. Thank you! I’ll be setting my intentions!
I love that you call these goals intentions. This is a good way to look at them.
This is a really helpful post specially in this 2021 after living with a pandemic whole 2020.Your post is encouraging to set goals for the new year.
This is a great reminder to continually set intentional goals and work hard for them. Thanks for the printables.
This year, I will need it. I am saving this post as this might be a reminder to me whenever I wanna give up!
I think it really makes more sense to create the intention list like the one you do than the resolution. It is also clearer what to do next to achieve it.
I love the vibe of your website! You also did a great job designing this template. The fonts look wonderful!
I will have to try this! I think writing down what you want is a fantastic idea.
A great way to get inspired, to put goals and dreams on paper and find the right inspiration to take care of them.
My only New Year resolution this year was to spend more time with friends and family. 2020 made that impossible so I want to make more of an effort to make sure people close to me feel loved.
I am already off track. I wanted to make a small healthy choice every day. I like to read so I decided that for every novel I read I should also read something educational, so I learn something new. And the last was, I want to try a new recipe every month.
I will try to make an intention list like your example to see if that helps.
These tips are on point, thank you so much! I often find myself committing to too many goals and achieving only a few.
I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made
good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
