2018 Intentions

Happy New Year!!

Hey everyone, hope you all had a great holiday season and a happy new year! I’ve had such a great time being home with my family this past week. I love being home and just relaxing all day, and of course getting a little shopping in when I can.

For today’s post I wanted to talk about something many people are talking about as the new year starts and that’s goals/resolutions for the 2018 year. I love the start of a new year, a new month, or even a new week! Instead of focusing on goals for myself in 2018 I want to focus on intentions.

in·ten·tion
inˈten(t)SH(ə)n/
noun
noun: intention; plural noun: intentions
  1. a thing intended; an aim or plan.
    “she was full of good intentions”

I find myself beating myself up when I make a goal for myself and fail to make it. By creating these intentions for 2018, I am hoping to create a more positive outlook on what I hope to accomplish and focus on this year.

 

intention

Intention #1: Become simpler

“Become simpler” sounds confusing when you first think about it. For me become simpler means to not be caught up in materialistic things. I find myself always wanting to save my money for the newest makeup and clothing. When thinking back, I find I never enjoy these things as much as I think I will.

Intention #2: Focus on my health

Sometimes I find myself caught up in the moment and it’s not until later that day I realize that I had made unhealthy decisions. I personally am not trying to lose weight, but I do want to focus and make a habit of working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle (exercise and food).

Intention #3: Create a morning & night routine

By creating a morning as well as night routine, I am hoping that I can become more productive throughout the day. More specifically I want to also wake up at the same time everyday, eventually being 6:15. By the end of 2018 I am hoping to have accomplished this, by waking up earlier I am also hoping this drives me to go to bed and start my night routine earlier.

 

I am keeping my intentions simple and clear for 2018 to better help me succeed in these. What are some of your intentions for this next year? I  would love to hear down below! I hope 2018 is all you hope it to be!

 

Sincerely,

Mackenzie
