But here’s a crazy idea: This year, let’s set New Year’s goals that actually come true. Keep reading for the Happy Gut Guide to lasting New Year’s intentions.
How to Set a New Year’s Intention Worth Keeping
When my turn came up, I stopped right in front of the entrance, closed my eyes, took three deep breaths, cleared my mind, and then allowed whatever word felt most significant to me — the word that most would define what I wanted to manifest in my life moving forward — gently float into my conscious mind without overthinking it.
This was such a powerful experience that I’ve done the same thing every year since. Choosing theme words for 2018, 2019, and 2020 has had a huge impact on my life. And that’s my wish for you this New Year, too!!! Let me show you how to do it (sans having to climb to nearly 13,900 feet above sea level, of course, haha!).
How to Choose a Theme Word for 2021
Why? Because unlike an extra trip to the gym or eating more leafy greens, a single word invokes a feeling — and that’s the best type of intention in the world, because instead of being an item to check off the list that you either get done or don’t get done, it focuses on how you want to feel and who you want to be as you move through the world.
“Your theme word is like your North Star; it’s not the destination, but it’s constantly there pointing you in the right direction, especially if you’re feeling a little lost or off track.”
The 4 C’s for Creating Powerful Intentions You Won’t Break
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was not easy. High altitude, physical exhaustion, body aches and pains, uncomfortably soaking wet in a torrential downpour… all could have been excuses for turning back. Sure, it may not be the most difficult trek on the planet, but it certainly taught me a lot about intention. No matter what obstacles come in the way, the way towards your intention is to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Setting a theme word for the year, and then following the “4 Cs” is my secret to New Year’s resolutions that really last.
