Happy New Year 2018! Although you may already have big plans for the New Year, some of us are still getting clear on our goals, intentions and ambitions. The bigger we dream, the higher we reach, but dreaming alone won't get us very far. Results require action, so I was thrilled to discover the ACTION formula. Use these steps any time you're looking to create something new in your life.
A – Accessible - When setting your intention/goal, make sure it will force you to grow while still being within reach. I recommend setting a goal just outside what you think is achievable.
C – Clearly Stated and Concise - State your goal/intention clearly in a way that avoids the possibility of misinterpretation.
T – Towards and Timed - Make your goals/intentions something you're moving toward will keep it positive. Keeping regularly scheduled times to check in will help keep you accountable.
I – Impassioned - Make it something you're excited about. If you're emotionally connected to your goal/intention, it will be easier to keep yourself on track.
O – Organic - Is your goal/intention in line with your values? Is it natural for you? Setting goals in line with your core beliefs/values will help to keep you motivated.
N – As if Now - State your goal/intention as if it were already a reality. Write it down, and revisit it regularly.
- Beginning Saturday January 6, I'll be teaching the winter Sun Salutations at The Yoga Place in Ephrata between 9:15-10:15 am in Studio B. Expect to practice healthy alignment, intentional movement, and optional inversions.
- This year, I'll be directing Create Karma's wellness program, AWE (Accessible Wellness for Everybody). Expect to learn from wellness leaders from across the country while developing a plan to optimize your own well-being. This year's participants will receive a coaching call with me between each of our sessions.
