“Let’s leave all the hard stuff in 2022!” Wait, what?! Trust me, if it were possible, I’d be all on board. But it’s just not possible, nor is it helpful to go into the New Year with this mentality! Today I want to share a healthier approach with you.
So, how do you actually move into the New Year experiencing more peace and less stress? Well, that’s what I dive into in this episode! I'm going to share some practical approaches to creating New Year's goals with you, and I know you will find lots of insights here! So let's get started.
Moving Into 2023 With More Peace & Less Stress And What You Can Expect From ME in 2023
Why We DON'T Need To Leave All Of The Hard Stuff In 2022
When it comes to New Year's resolutions, you'll often hear people say they're leaving all the hard or bad things behind in the previous year. And this messaging can be damaging because it's not exactly possible to just leave behind all of the difficult parts of life. The hard stuff is sometimes just part of being human! You don't need to have everything figured out just because it's a New Year. And I really want you to give yourself permission to not have everything figured out!
Instead, I want you to honor all of the amazing work that you've done in the past year. Ask yourself what worked, what didn't, and what you've learned along the way. And take what's working, and carry that into 2023! No matter how small it might feel, you have made progress in 2022. And I know you've probably done some amazing things that you're really proud of! And I want you to know that I'm proud of you, too.
Setting Meaningful And Helpful Intentions For 2023
So let's talk about how we can set goals for 2023 that are much more about living and a whole lot less about anxiety and anxiety recovery! I think that setting healthy intentions for the New Year starts with asking yourself hard questions, like what's working for you, where you can grow, and what you'd want to improve! And I think that a big reason why resolutions often don't work for people is because we're often not focused on the things that matter, or because we've bitten off way more than we can chew.
But when you set intentions for the New Year, you bring your attention and focus to the things that actually matter! And you might be wondering... what the heck is an intention?! Well, for me it looks like asking myself how I want to feel in the coming year, and what actions I can take to create that for myself. Intentions are all about acknowledging how you want to feel, and taking the healthy actions that will lead you there! A big intention for me this year is to start feeling more present.
