I hope you’re all having a stellar week! To my fellow college students in the midst or heading into finals – BREATHE… it’ll be ok, the world won’t end.
Recently I jotted down a set of December intentions for myself, and today I’m choosing to share them with the blog world in hopes of inspiring others to set intentions for their life.
I’ve linked a post for this intention which I think sums it up nicely.
2. Broaden my outdoor activity repertoire
I’d like to try XC skiing, snowshoe running, and downhill skiing (as a snowboarder this should be rather interesting!).
3. Write more simple posts
Posts like “take up space“. Just my thoughts. Flowing words. Not paragraphs per say. Just me writing.
4. Create mental space daily
Setting aside a few minutes each day to just sit and breathe and see where my mind wants to wander. Other tools for creating more mental space could be yoga, meditation apps, going for a walk in the woods near my house.
5. Practice enthusiasm
I feel much better when I’m enthusiastic in general about most everything that comprises my daily existence. I lose this a little bit in the winter months because it’s cold and dark, but now is when I need it most. So, I’m putting the intention out there into space to focus my energy on being enthusiastic throughout my days.
