No More Resolutions– 5 Tips to Manifest Your Life’s Vision
Updated: Jan 11, 2022
We all do it (or at least think about it)— we wake up on January 1st ready to set our New Year’s resolutions. Well, I am here to tell you to throw those resolutions out the window and focus on setting positive intentions for your life. Creating unrealistic “resolutions” puts unnecessary stress on you possibly setting you up for failure. Think about it, the word “resolution” is so finite and doesn't allow you the favor and grace needed to make sustainable life changes. Resolutions subliminally imply that you are not good enough and that you need to create a “new you” when in fact the current you is just fine the way you are, and may just need a tune-up so you can be the best version of yourself—as determined by YOU.
One way to manifest your dreams is to set positive intentions and create a vision board to help you manifest your wildest ambitions. Guess what?
The vision doesn't always start at the beginning of the year either. Setting aside times throughout the year allows you the freedom to create (and revise) goals to support your life’s vision.
Shifting focus to setting intentions is a more purposeful way to help you get to the end result—whatever that may be for YOU. You may want to focus on self-care, mental health, physical health, being more present, securing a promotion at work, traveling more, spending more quality time with family and friends. Whatever your intention may be, here are 5 tips to help you set and nurture your intention.
1. Know your “why”.
What is your desire for change? Connect your intentions to your feelings and don’t get too stuck on the desired outcome. For example, if you want to lose weight, ask yourself, why do you want to lose weight? It may be that you want to live a longer, healthier life so you can see your kids and grandkids grow up or for you to feel strong so you can do your favorite activities. Once you have established your why, write down your intentions (Tip #2).
2. Write it Down
