With the year nearly drawn to a close, we take this time of year to explore the year that was and reflect on the accomplishments we had and improvements we wish to make. Often, we tend to draw more on the things that we didn’t like as opposed to the things we did. No matter how good of a year we had, we seem to get hung up on the negative side.
Set Your Intentions
If you go into any plan with a hazy or unclear finishing point, the plan will probably not proceed as you had imagined. This is where people can get hung up. If they have no intention or concrete goal at the end of their plan, there’s little chance of it being completed.
As you clarify the intention, you will find that the path no longer becomes important. The intention is the goal, and the path becomes more fluid. If your intentions are clear, your goals will be met in earnest.
We can’t be in a poor state of mind when setting our intentions. Your intentions should be positive in nature. A negative intention would read: “I won’t eat bread this year.” This intention sets you up to feel worse if you happen to eat a piece of bread during the year. You’ll feel like you failed yourself.
A positive intention would read: “I intend a healthy existence and a nurtured body.” The difference between these intentions is that you have room to grow within the positive intention. You may falter here and there, but you know how to get back on track. This kind of thinking with any intention will foster a happier energy within your body and will make for a happier existence in the end.
Take Some Personal Time Every Day
Meditation is crucial to being of sound mind. Negative news and stress from the holidays can bog any person down. Make an effort in the new year to take time each day to sit quietly and breathe.
This is an important step to take before setting an intention. Having this time will also help bring balance to your life, as you will be able to tap into your mind and relax yourself from the various stresses you are feeling.
