The Power of Focusing on New Year’s Intentions Versus Resolutions (and How to Do It)

Happy New Year!

I love the feeling of universal, collective energy of new beginnings and transition as we enter a new year.

It’s also a time we may put unnecessary pressure on ourselves to become a new person overnight, via the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions.

New Year, New Me!?

Have you ever set a new year’s resolution that you actually kept the entire year?

Yeah, me neither.

And it seems like the collective is catching on! Resolutions are losing popularity to setting intentions.

This is a good thing. Intentions are more realistic and gentle than resolutions.

And you know me, I'm all about being more gentle with yourself.

Resolutions don’t work for most people because it’s like forcing yourself into doing something you think you “should” do or being someone you think you should be.

So while resolutions tend to be uncompromising, hard and fast goals that are either achieved or broken, intentions are broader ideas that don’t hold you to a specific outcome.

Intentions point you in the right direction and are more about a shift in mindset to help you achieve that goal.

A thoughtful intention nurtures your consciousness and has the power to significantly raise your awareness.

So with that, I ask, “What is your New Year Intention?”

Tune in podcast episode 54, “The Power of Focusing on New Year’s Intentions Versus Resolutions (and How to Do It)” as I explain why you should focus on intentions rather than resolutions, the difference between them, and why intentions are more realistic, inspiring, and doable. I’ll share a step-by-step process on how to set heart-based powerful intentions for the New Year and beyond.
