Top 3 Ways to Keep Your New Year Intentions on Track
Setting your intentions is the easy part. Taking action towards them can be tough, so, here are three great ways to help you stay on track with your new year intentions.
1. Create a Goal Card
This one is super simple and won’t take you much time at all if you already know what you would like to achieve during the year.
First of all, choose some thick fancy handmade paper or a card with a nice inspirational quote on the front. (Hint: There are some beautiful downloads right here)
Next, list out each goal that you would like to achieve on the back of the card or paper then put in it somewhere that you will see it every day.
It has to be somewhere that you will see it, otherwise it will go by the wayside and we don’t want that, do we?!
If you are a planner kind of girl like me you can keep your goal card in the front of your planner (See mine below)
2. Keep track of your big wins
One of my personal favourite ways to keep myself motivated is to get myself a beautiful notebook and sit down in a quiet place and celebrate all of the amazing things that happened during the week. Even if they are small things, I celebrate each and every thing, after all they all contribute my bigger goals.
Celebrating the wins in this way, makes me feel really good about where I am and the progress I have made on my goals which in turn keeps me focussed on the journey to that end goal.
3. Stay inspired with Desktop Backgrounds
Another way I keep myself on track and motivated to keep on pushing through is a little extra inspiration that sits on my desktop. It is the first thing I see when I switched my computer on every morning and it gets me excited for the day I have planned ahead.
I make a point of changing my background at least once a week and aim to align it with whatever I want myself to remember throughout the week. For example, as it is the first week of January as I write this, my background is a lovely reminder that I can do whatever I set my mind to – This year is going to be pretty spectacular and I can’t wait to share it with you.

4. Bonus Tip – Willpower
Willpower has a massive impact on whether we complete our goals – If we truly want them, we will take them. If we don’t then we will be a little less focussed on the journey to that goal.
Ask yourself if the intentions you are setting yourself are truly aligned with who you are and how you want to live your life.
Are you setting intentions for the sole aim of pleasing someone else?
If so, stop and find the path that you want to take. Life is about creating happiness for yourself as well as others so aim to please your souls journey and the rest will follow.

We can often allow our thoughts to define the way we live our lives and it can be hard to break the habit. One of my favourite ways to help make myself feel more balance in my life is through meditation, mantras and affirmations.
