It’s almost 2017! I can’t believe it.
I’ve never been one to set New Year’s resolutions because it seems like they rarely work for anyone around me. I figure I would be better off not wasting my time.
Our society has made it a half-hearted practice writing down resolutions. We’ve made it normal to be ok with not actually carrying out our resolutions.
Maybe it’s because I’m surrounded by a bunch of yogis 99 percent of the time, but I’ve seen a lot of chatter lately about setting intentions this year instead of resolutions. A recent post on Wanderlust’s blog made the suggestion to set an intention for the year and I was sold.
Yes, there is a difference. A resolution is a specific task or goal and an intention is more open and thus to me feels much less limiting.
A resolution might help you get one thing done like not biting your nails, but an intention of being more mindful can help you be aware of biting your nails and all of the other things you might not notice everyday.
I want to share a post from one of my favorite people on Instagram. If you aren’t sold on intentions over resolutions yet, check this out:
Here’s to an intention-filled 2017!
