SIGN UP FOR MY **FREE** 7 DAY YIN YOGA IMMERSION PROGRAM TO IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY!
For the past 4 or 5 years, I’ve had a ritual to honor the progress I made in the last twelve months and to set clear intentions for the coming twelve. It’s amazing how powerful this exercise has been and every year when I look over the goals and dreams I had set for myself, I’m blown away when I realize how many of them came true! There’s something to be said about putting pen to paper and speaking your dreams out loud. January 1st is a powerful time to transform and renew ourselves. There is so much potential to tap into!
This year I thought I would share with you my process as you might find it beneficial. You will need a pen and paper, your phone or laptop and any diaries or calendars you might use on a regular basis.
- LIVELIHOOD & LIFESTYLE (think career, money, work, home, style, possessions, fashion, travel, gifts, sustainability, etc)
- BODY & WELLNESS (think healing, fitness, food, rest, mental health, sensuality, movement, etc)
- CREATIVITY & LEARNING (think artistic expression, interests, hobbies, education, etc)
- RELATIONSHIPS & SOCIETY (think romance, family, friendships, collaboration, community, causes, etc)
- ESSENCE & SPIRITUALITY (think soul, inner self, truth, intuition, faith, spiritual practices, etc)
You might be older but I think the key to being wiser is being able to learn lessons from the experiences you had and the people you met or lost along the way. Take your time and write it all out. They can be very concrete and quantifiable milestones such as “Got a promotion at work” or “got married”, or they can be less tangible and focus more on feeling like “improved self confidence”.
After you’ve taken the time to write everything down according to those five categories, take a minute to read it all over. You should hopefully feel happy and proud as you read it back!
My only guideline or word of advice when it comes to writing down goals and dreams is that it should feel good. Often people will set a goal like “lose 20 lbs” and that goal makes them feel terrible because it reminds them that they’re not the way they want to be. Instead try phrasing it in a way that makes you feel positive and optimistic like “take a walk in nature five times a week”. The end result might be the same, but the process will feel a lot better.
