The holiday season can come with a lot of chaos and stress, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
When I feel especially overwhelmed with all things holiday, I take a step back and think about setting a positive intention for the season.
This helps to keep me focused on what is important as well as to remind me of all the joy this time of year brings us.
Also, by reciting or writing down your intentions for the holidays, you’ll give yourself something tangible to thumb through when things start to get difficult.
This holiday season is the perfect time to set intentions and manifest all that you desire in the coming new year.
Take a moment to reflect on what you would like to achieve, or bring into your life in 2021, and think of ways you can do this.
Self-improvement can take many forms; from creating a debt management plan or sticking to a healthier diet, setting concrete and achievable goals will help you focus and drive motivation throughout the season.
The winter months are notoriously difficult and long, but having something concrete to strive for will help keep spirits high as we look ahead to a brighter future.
Let me share with you some ways to set intentions for the holiday season.
1. Prepare your journal
Allow some time to relax and simply write down what you wish to reflect on.
After that, take a few moments to think about what intention you would like to set for yourself.
It could something like “Be positive” or “Be an abundance magnet”.
The important thing is that the intention resonates with your values and motivates you to pursue something meaningful.
Setting an intention can help you cultivate patience during trying times, open yourself up to possibilities, or even overcome challenges without getting overwhelmed.
As the holidays are filled with joy and love, try to be aware of your intention and take it out into the world every day, in any form words, or actions.
2. Beware of thoughts that sabotage the intention
Everyone has had moments of self-doubt when we seem to have set our intentions and goals but our thoughts are constantly filled with negative ideas that stop us from gaining momentum.
It’s not just a feeling – it can be a pattern of self-sabotaging behavior.
In cases like this, it helps to take a step back and evaluate the root of your doubts.
What can you do or learn that will help you overcome these obstacles and reach your goals?
Taking the time to reflect on these questions gives you the opportunity to turn self-sabotage into true personal growth.
3. Go for it with everything you’ve got
Now that you’ve made yourself a goal and a plan to achieve it, it’s time to take real action!
Don’t hold back – seize the moment and go for it with everything you’ve got.
The fear of failure can be overwhelming, but don’t let it hinder your drive.
It’s time to learn, discover and create something amazing inspired by your intention.
Take risks and have faith in yourself to break through any obstacles that stand in the way of fulfilling your dream.
Visualize success and take decisive steps to achieve it.
Now is your time to go out there and make a difference!
Are you ready to invigorate your holiday season with new intentions?
