Skipping New Years Resolutions | Healthy Lifestyle Tips

Girl looking into the sky

Every year when January 1st rolls around, we make promises to ourselves that usually have us staring down a list of things we didn’t accomplish at the end of the year. “NOT THIS YEAR!” This is going to be the year of no resolutions.

Instead of writing a list of things we’re going to do in the new year and holding ourselves to goals that may not be achieved, we’re choosing a single word and manifesting it the whole year through.

Why Choose A Word?

Choosing a single word centers you around something and drives your mindset for the year, instead of creating a list of things that might be challenging to accomplish. We find that choosing a word makes it easier for you to focus and be intentional with how you choose to navigate your year.

How to Choose Your Word?

Choosing your word is something personal but there are ways to make it easier. Perhaps there was a theme that emerged in your life in the past 12 months that has guided you to your word for this year. Maybe you started your health journey and want to continue it, perhaps you are looking forward to a career change in the new year, or maybe you’re just focused on maintaining your happiness? Those things can all help guide your choice.

Thought Starters for Your Choice

Did you think we’d leave you without thought starters to spark your adventure to choose your word? Never. Below is a list of some of our favorite words that just might resonate with you too.

  • Nourish
  • Release
  • Focus
  • Calm
  • Thrive
  • Connect
  • Grateful
  • Fearless
  • Conquer
  • Healthy
  • Vitality
  • Encouraged

Whichever word you choose, be sure to consider what the word will help you do. What could you use more of in your life? What could you use less of in your life? What characteristics would you like to focus on? How do you want to feel? Asking yourself these questions will help you identify a word that might be right for you. No matter which word you choose, we’ll be here to help you have a healthy and prosperous New Year.
