Happy almost New Year everyone! Have you written down your New Year’s resolutions yet? If that question makes your head spin because you don’t know where to begin, I’ve got you covered! Before the new year, I love taking some time to write down specific goals for different areas of my life. Having a vision board with intensions, reflections and goals is honestly the best way to start! In today’s blog post, I’ve included a few New Year’s Resolution templates to help you reflect on 2022, as well as setting intentions and goals for 2023!
Setting intentions are a great way to visualize your goals while also holding yourself accountable. Writing down your intentions makes them feel like less of an option, and more of a non-negotiable acceleration. I have found that I am more likely to achieve my goals when I write them down. Keep in mind, the more specific you can be, the better! For example, if you intend on getting into a fitness routine, instead of saying, “I want to go to the gym more often”, you should say, “I want to go to the gym 3 days a week on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s.” Even if you have to start slow, at least you have a plan in place.
Additionally, reflecting on the last year is another great tool to stay on track with the goals you want to achieve in the new year. This is because it allows you to praise what you have accomplished and aim for what you want to succeed in going forward. Seeing all of the goals you accomplished is a bit of a motivational boost, because it shows you what you are capable of!
Choosing a New Year’s Resolution
While creating resolutions can be beneficial, sometimes there is too much emphasis on accomplishing a singular “New Year’s Resolution” …at least I think so! Sometimes it is totally okay to create a more general resolution! Maybe it’s something related to your mental and/or physical health, your relationships, career, or even daily habits. Resolutions like, “I want to get into a regimented schedule during the week” work great. While it’s great to set long-term goals, short-term goals can be just as impactful.
Use the templates below to set your goals and become unstoppable in 2023!
Feel free to print these out or “pin” them on Pinterest for later!
