Each month I try to write down intentions or little goals for myself to follow and work on accomplishing. This is a chance for me to really think about where I am in my life and what I want to accomplish. I limit the list to around 10 things so it is attainable and not overwhelming. Everyday I am able to think about some or all of the things on my list and make progress towards achieving them. I love doing this because our lives are constantly changing and I get to re-evaluate my goals each month, see what I have accomplished from the month prior, and look forward to the future. I feel that this betters my attitude and perspective which makes me a more motivated and positive person overall. Resolutions shouldn't be limited to the beginning of the New Year, but in making them each month, you get into a routine of regularly working towards goals.
November intentions are especially important to me because it is the official start of the holiday season and I think it's very important to identify the things you have in life, what you are thankful for, and where your priorities are compared to last month or even last year.
Here is my simple list of November intentions that anyone can implement into their lives and adapt to their life or personal goals.
1. Drink more water
This is a default intention I set for myself every month because it is something I constantly remind myself and in doing this, I feel better.
2. Be patient with yourself
Take your time, take a breath, step back from a difficult task
3. Do one thing each day dedicated to yourself
Face mask, favorite book, a chill Netflix night, go out for your favorite food or drink
4. Start each day with a positive attitude
5. Spread kindness
6. Be thankful for your life and your people everyday
7. Do one thing outside your comfort zone
Test yourself, challenge yourself, see what you're capable of
8. Do a random act of kindness once a week
All of these things are applicable to your life in some way, shape, or form. Try it out and see how you like it, you just might surprise yourself :)
