Every year I choose a word to focus my intents for the year rather than make resolutions. For 2019 my word was health. It was a good word for me too as my health struggled a bit and I ended up taking steps to improve it. I am now in physical therapy working on keeping surgery at bay for my knee and hip. This year I chose a word that I believe could balance me – breathe.
I have noticed when I am stressed, scared, or overwhelmed I hold my breath. I think my mind is so focused on other things even though breathing is an automatic response I stop it and hold my breath. Which makes everything worse. My goals this year are of balance in work, life, and family. I tend to hyper focus on one thing and my goal for this year is to even out the bumps in the road with balance in all areas. To do this I need to breathe and allow myself to refocus, center, and move on.
What is your word for 2020?
