Choosing a Word of the Year in 2023

With the end of each year, many people reflect on the past 12 months and set intentions for the upcoming year. One popular approach to this reflection is to choose a word of the year to serve as an intention for the coming year. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of selecting a word of the year, tips for selecting the right word, and ideas for holding oneself accountable to the word chosen.

The Benefits of Choosing a Word of the Year

By choosing a word of the year, people can set an intention, focus, or goal that can guide their behaviours and decisions for the year. Through this focus, individuals can become more mindful, productive, and intentional in their actions and decisions. Additionally, having a word of the year can help individuals to stay positive and remain focused on their goals.

Tips for Selecting the Right Word

When selecting a word of the year, it can be helpful to take time to reflect on what has happened in the past year and what the individual would like to focus on in the upcoming year. Additionally, it can be helpful to choose a word that is meaningful and inspiring. A word of the year should be easy to remember, and should be something that the individual can strive towards.

Ideas for Holding Oneself Accountable

Once the individual has selected a word, it can be helpful to make a plan for how to stay accountable to the word. For example, the individual can make a vision board, write a list of goals, or make a plan to take actionable steps towards their word. Additionally, the individual can create reminders to stay on track with their word of the year.
