SETTING INTENTIONS

New Year, New Intention! 

December 29, 2020

Before we get swept away with overhauling our daily routines for yet another resolution, we want to try something new. Let's try something that allows us to be able to feel good about the progress we make even if the it's a little different than we imagined. Setting an intention this year can help keep yourself accountable with kindness and compassion. This is our guide on what it means to reflect, set, and create the year you've always wanted! 
In her own WORDs: 

SET YOUR INTENTION 

Every year, this time of year is full of "New Year, New Me" attitude and lists of resolutions that seem just a little too far out of reach. We urge you to forget setting resolutions, but create intentions instead! From our Importance of Intention Setting
 
"When you set an intention instead of a resolution, you stop thinking about wanting what you do not have, and start channeling your energy toward what you want to achieve. If you happen to find yourself straying from your intention, you are less likely to feel you have failed, since you are still moving towards your ultimate goal. Instead, you can simply readjust, recommit and continue on towards that goal. As you can see, setting an intention is a gentler and often times more effective way of achieving a goal.

The most common resolution is to be healthier. Rather than setting a resolution to lose 15 pounds, you might might ask yourself, what's keeping you from being healthier? Or why do you want to be healthier? It might be that you've had a busy 2020 at work and need to find BALANCE again in your life. Or that you want to be healthier to have energy to spend quality time with your FAMILY. Your WORD of intention for 2021 might then be BALANCE or FAMILY. It's a WORD that reminds you of your why, of what's most important. It's a reminder of where you want to spend your attention and energy.

Transform your Resolution into Intention 

If you've already thought about your resolution for the upcoming year, AMAZING! Creating an intention can help support your journey with your resolution by reminding yourself of WHY you set this resolution in the first place. Transform your resolution into an intention with our guide: How to Change the Top 5 Resolutions into Intentions.

"Each new year brings the "New Year, New Me" mentality, but what if we changed our perspective to be a "New Year, New WORD" mentality? We take the great qualities of resolutions and create longevity in accomplishing all of our goals with intention. We've created a step by step guide on how to create an intention from your resolution.

These are the top 5 resolutions made every year:

I want to be fit.
I want to practice more self-care.
I want to travel more.
I want to read 1 new book a month.
I want to budget better" 

How to Set an Intention 

Finding your WORD for the new year is a powerful exercise. In order to know the direction you want to head into, take a moment to reflect, celebrate the victories, and learn the lessons from the last year. From How to Set an Intention

"REFLECT

Before we DO anything, it’s important to reflect, to acknowledge the progress that’s been made, and to come from a place of self-compassion versus guilt or shame. It’s important to remember the feeling of accomplishment as opposed to the feeling of falling off the path. However your last year looked like, it is important to see the progress you've made because despite all of the challenges, YOU DID IT!

VISUALIZE

With this awareness, we can find our WHY. Answer the journal prompts below to clearly see the future you’re striving to create. When you can see what you want, the path to get there also becomes clear.

COMMIT

After seeing, feeling, and knowing the future you want to create for the person you are, it’s now time to recommit to your actions. The key is CONSISTENCY. Maybe it’s not one big change, but one small change that you practice every day."

What's Your WORD?

If there is one thing this last year has taught us, it's that we can't predict the future. The beauty of intention setting is that we don't need to set that expectation for ourselves. Your WORD is your guide to living your next year with kindness and compassion instead of expectation and outcomes.

Here are some awesome ways other Makers have used their Kit for every occasion! 

The Importance of Setting an Intention

This year, forget setting a resolution. Instead, ring in the New Year with an intention. This slight change to how you set your goal can actually improve your success in achieving whatever it is that you desire. You may ask, “Isn’t a person’s resolution and intention one and the same?” It’s easy to think so, since they are often times used in the same context. But there is a subtle, yet significant, difference between the two.

Setting Intentions with Erica Lippy

This year, I will probably set my biggest intention yet. Before, I didn’t have much faith in the power of manifestation - though I’ve come to understand it and embrace it over the last few years. Now I get it. We are all manifestors or we all have the ability to manifest.

Set Your New Year's Intention

For 2021, forget setting a resolution. Instead, ring in the New Year with an intention. This slight change to how you set your goal can actually improve your success in achieving whatever it is that you desire. You may ask, “Isn’t a person’s resolution and intention one and the same?” It’s easy to think so, since they are often times used in the same context.
