I have big plans for up-notching my business in 2019. With my recent Master’s degree and new accreditations, my website, service offerings and profile all need tweaking. I set myself this great new-year’s resolution for January, a no-brainer. However, last month one of my clever professors gave an assignment requiring me to deliver a business plan, marketing strategy and tools I intend to use, by December 1st. Yikes! My initial plans were to prepare the assignment and consider it a kick-start to my daunting January task. Once I got into it, I was so in-touch with my intentions that I ended up rolling out an executive summary and business plan, up-dated website, updated social media and January Newsletter, complete with a photo-shoot! I’m ready to roll – and what an amazing feeling to end the year with! I feel like this is the satisfying culmination of 11 months past and a wonderful way to end 2018 and ease into 2019! How about instead of “New Year’s” resolutions, we aim for “NOW Year’s” resolutions to boost any still pending intentions? Here’s a little inspiration for “Whealthy“ December Intentions:
Your December Intention Inspiration
I plan my breakfast to set me up for a balanced day of energy, satisfaction and nutrition, especially knowing that holiday lunches, cocktails and parties will occupy the month.
I get my 10,000 steps, whatever the weather, to help with my appetite, sleep, stress, energy, metabolism, brain functioning and performance.
I eat mindfully, being a “food-snob” for anything I take the time to savor and discover I don’t truly love or recognize is just a “memory” in my mouth.
I take time to breath – one to three deep breaths - before I choose to speak, eat or work in order to connect with myself to say, eat or do as I truly intend.
I record 5 things I’m grateful for now, since gratitude makes us happier and healthier and practicing helps create the habit of focusing on the positive in life.
I set my bedtime and organize my day around that time rather than finishing everything and then allowing myself to go to bed – letting me maximize absolutely every experience I have throughout the season.
As 2018 winds down, we’re all in a race for the finish, anticipating deadlines, holidays and celebrations and glancing back at 11 months past. We tend to put off our intentions for January whereas I believe it is MORE empowering to do it NOW! Why not take stock now to end 2018 satisfied knowing you are already doing what you set your intentions on? Offer yourself this simple gift of a more fulfilling holiday season and perhaps a little less daunting January. What are your December intentions? I would love to hear…
