Setting your intentions for the year. How do you set your intentions for the year in such uncertain times? 

2021 is bringing us some new energy of hope. Let’s enjoy it and use it!

What is crucial in uncertain times is to anchor yourself in the most precious and stable thing you own, your inner self. You need to cultivate your self-connection and create a world of wellness in your life. If you find peace in your heart, you will be able to connect to your inner self and start a conversation of what you really need to be happy, fulfilled and glowing. And actually, all of these do not depend on the external world, but only on your decision to be happy and take care of yourself.

So how do you do that?

1: Tune into your inner self and listen to what it says

The happiness road starts always with moments of connection to your inner self. Creating moments of stillness, or meditation, being in nature…and listening to your inner voice. In these moments, start writing about what your heart desires. Make a list of your dreams, of your favourite activities that would bring you so much joy. Make a priority list.

2: Bring movement and energy into your body

It’s all about taking care of your body yes! Your body is your temple. Are you taking good care of your own temple? Your body carries this high energy that you need. And moving the body insures you shift dormant or unwanted old energies.

Your resolutions should be about bringing joy into your movement. What movement will you choose that will bring you joy? Yoga, boxing, dance, maybe even a new form of movement?

Moving the body in a way that is fun and brings you joy will make you feel better both inside and out.

3: Make time for self-care

Self-care is part your sacred act of self-love. Self-love brings you to self-confidence and being able to create and achieve your own success and happiness. Create your list of self-care acts, it is so important.

4: Fill your own reality with only positive energy

Do you ever find yourself asking: ‘how can I be happy in a society filled with so many fears and a limited social life?’

Every day, clear your heart from the fears of the world, don’t buy into them, they will never love you, nor sponsor your wellbeing.

Try every day to connect with your loved ones, the people that bring you positivity and friendship. In these times, you will cherish this tribe of positive people you want around yourself.

2021 is a new kind of year but remember you hold the power to turn it around in positivity. Only positivity can create positive outcomes and vibes in your life. Know and believe you build your life with your inner energy. So, dream big and create the best possible 2021 you can!
