If you’re frustrated with setting intentions that never manifest, this is for you. Here are three practical, actionable steps that will turn your new year’s intentions into fruitful manifestations in 2020.
Pour yourself your favorite beverage, find a comfortable and quiet space and dedicate 10-20 minutes to clarify your intentions and create an action plan for the new year.
If you are someplace warm, grab a journal and head outdoors. Sitting on the earth with direct sunlight while you create these goals will recalibrate you to earth’s electromagnetic frequency and calm your nervous system to help you get as clear as possible.
Don’t forget the vitamin D benefits of setting this intentions in the sun— this will recharge your vitamin D reserves and help to balance out your mood!
Ready to begin? Take three deep breaths into the lowest part of your abdomen. With each exhale, feel your body sink into the earth, the floor, or the chair beneath you. Relax your physical body and your mind will follow. Once your body is relaxed and your headspace is clear, begin with these practices:
1. Make a list of your biggest accomplishments and 10 things you are grateful in 2019.This will help you avoid a common pitfall in creating new year’s intentions. Many times, we love to dream about the future, but forget to be grateful and acknowledge everything that has already occurred. Most likely, 2019 was not a complete disaster, so acknowledge it appropriately. And, if it was a particularly challenging year, finding 10 things to be grateful for is even more critical!
2. List 5 intentions for 2020 that feel equally expansive and grounded.This is the key. Your goals should stretch you outside of your comfort zone and require you to grow. They should also feel grounded, stable, and calm. If a goal makes you feel more frenetic, chaotic and inadequate, know it is too much of a stretch for this very moment. Start small and all of the small goals compound into greatness.
3. Choose 1 goal to act upon daily. If one of your goals is to become healthier, get specific on the action steps you need to take on a DAILY BASIS to achieve your vision of health. This could be exercising 3 times per week, meditating 2 times and adding more quality time with friends once a week into your schedule. Be extremely specific about the actions you need to take in order to reach your goal and schedule them into each day. The appointments you set with yourself to meet your goals need to become non-negotiable. Start with one goal and go from there. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself and add everything at once, that is a recipe for failure. One thing at a time, one good decision at a time. It will all compound!
And, if one of your goals is to be healthier or happier, consider getting more vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency affects a majority of the population and commonly contributes to depression.
