Happy 2017! I love page-a-day calendars so I’m excited to be starting my Happier calendar this week. One of the first happiness tips in the calendar is to choose a one-word theme for the year.
“Choose a single word to act as an overarching theme for your entire year. Identify one big idea that you want to guide your thoughts and actions of the coming months.”
Ideas include: Possibility. Finish. Adventure. Slower. Boundaries. Details.
This requires a lot of thought to be sure because you need to really filter down what is at the top of your list to focus on this year. Changing your diet or exercising more? Spending more time with family? Finishing that project you’ve been trying to finish for years? Pushing yourself to exceed in your career, or in school? Or maybe you want to focus on slowing down and taking in each day as it comes.
My one-word themes are a combination of the above. I’ve chosen three: Be Present, Create and Health First, which gives you a little bit of an idea of what my resolutions are for this year. What would your 2017 one-word theme(s) be? Here’s to a great year for us all 🙂
