New Year’s resolutions can serve as powerful propellers, moving us toward achievements and new experiences.
But what if we used intentions as well?
Whereas a resolution is “a firm decision to do or not to do something” an intention is a gentle reminder to get back on track.
Where goals focus on achievement and doing, intentions promote a state of being.
So if your intention is to be healthier and to exercise more, as long as you keep that in mind with decisions you make and actions you take, you’ll get to where you want to be and most importantly, you’ll become the person you want to be, the healthier, more active version of yourself.
While you may not achieve all of your resolutions in a year, as long as you remind yourself of your intentions, fill your body with them and let them influence your decision making, no matter how far off track you get, you can never fail.
