Happy New Year everyone! I like to set intentions for the new year to work on for the year! I also decided to pick a word for the year. My word this year is purpose. My goal is to keep in mind my purpose for doing all of the things I need, want, and enjoy doing!
Here are some of my intentions for the year:
Prioritize Relationships: This past year helped me realize how valuable relationships are to me. I plan on continuing to prioritize my time for my family and friends. This is something that lacked a bit last year but I want to make sure I’m better about it this year!
Journaling: I have always journaled on and off but I want to be more consistent. This year I bought a prompted memory journal that has a prompt for everyday of the year. It also has space for 5 years of responses so I’m excited to reflect back over the years!
Reading: Because of the pandemic I ended up reading for fun more in 2020 that I have in the last couple of years. I don’t enjoy reading as much during the busy parts of my quarters but my goal is to continue reading when on my breaks or on the weekends.
Productivity: I did well last quarter but I think I could do better with my time management and productivity. I want to implement the Pomodoro method with my studying to see if I am more productive. It is an interval method that is 25 minutes of work followed by a short 5 minute break and then repeat. I’m hoping this method ensures I’m finishing all of my work with fewer distractions and have more time for my leisure or social activities.
New Things: I want to continue to add new types of workouts and new recipes regularly! I also want to try new activities, whatever I may find.
Personal: I want to work on taking feedback in order to better myself for the future. This is one of my main personal goals because I know how important it is in OT school. Taking feedback of what I could do better in the future in order to better my practice is necessary. Sometime I can take feedback personally and more negatively than it really is so that’s why I want to work on it!
Those are just some of my intentions for the year! I’m excited for the fresh start a new year brings.
Thanks for reading!
