A New Year has landed and we always set intentions to do more, without eliminating something. What if we promised to do less un-meaningful, routine driven things before filling our plate with more expectations.
Take a moment to reflect on the year just been - what would you change? What could have been done differently? How can I make these changes moving forward?
We set such broad goals which fade away by mid-year and leave us feeling unfulfilled. Let's look at how we can minimise something before dreaming of the overall, usually overwhelming outcome. For example, instead of the generic "eat healthier", we could start with something a little more realistic like "minimise indulgent foods" and slowly transition to a healthier relationship with food. Or "minimise screen time" which could open up the opportunities connect more or exercise more.
Another thing to consider is how to achieve your intention. It is great to set the intention but if you write down how you are going to achieve this it will give you more motivation and bring the intention down to reality.
