Setting Intentions, Not Just Resolutions: A Holistic Approach to the New Year

103: Setting Intentions, Not Just Resolutions: A Holistic Approach to the New Year

We’re standing at the threshold of the new year!  It’s that time of year when the word resolution is on everybody’s lips. 

Man, I do not like that word. 

But in this episode of Couch Time, I want to shift our focus a bit from resolutions to intentions

You see, resolutions are often about setting specific goals like losing weight, hitting sales targets… you name it. But intentions are different. They’re deeper. 

Intentions are about setting a tone for how we want to live, how we want to feel, and how we want to connect with those around us.

We are going to explore how we can have intentions that encompass all areas of our lives, personal relationships, and yes, even our professional aspirations. I’m sharing a holistic approach that can be more fulfilling, and honestly, more sustainable than your typical New Year’s resolutions. Ready? Let’s go! 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • [1:30] – Stop focusing on resolutions! Focus on this instead
  • [4:30] – This is how you can set intentional, holistic goals for the year
  • [6:00] – It’s all about the quality of your interactions in your relationships
  • [7:00] – This is how you set game-changing business intentions
  • [9:10] – Let’s take your intentions and make them realistic and impactful
  • [13:30] – Wanting to integrate your faith and personal values into your New Year intentions? Here’s how to do it
  • [15:50] – Don’t forget the power of community

As you step into this new year, I encourage you to embrace it with intention and a rhythm that’s built just for you. It’s not just about achieving goals, it’s about creating a life that resonates with who you are at your core. 

It’s about nurturing relationships that bring you joy, pursuing professional aspirations that align with your values, and fostering personal growth that enriches your soul.
