How To Get Your Energy Back!
Every year, millions of people take the opportunity to use January as a fresh start. In our home, my husband and I sit down in the beginning of the year to set our goals and intentions for the year ahead.
When the kids became old enough to participate, they started joining us for this important ritual. How we set our resolutions changes each year, depending on what’s on our mind or what process I’ve read about most recently and want to ‘test’ out. But we always do it.
I believe that one of the most important steps we can in our lives is to take is a step back. To pause and reflect on our lives. To identify what’s working – and what’s not. To consider what we want - and what we don’t. To identify what’s most important to us – and what no longer serves us as we move forward. This time to pause and reflect also provides space to identify what we want before we move forward again.
That’s why I love the process of setting New Year’s resolutions. I love the act… the ritual…the space…to stop and reflect on our goals and intentions for the new year. It’s a chance to bring consciousness and intention to our lives. To our days. To our year. It's no wonder people have been setting New Year's resolutions for almost 4,000 years!
Having a clear goal, vision, intention, ambition, dream, or desire allows us to create and envision the life we want to live and move forward with clarity and focus.
So, if you’re going to be joining the millions of people who are thinking about what they want to create for themselves in the coming year, wouldn’t it would be helpful to know why so many people (up to 92%!) fail and what you can do to set yourself up for success?
