Wellbeing - My Word of the Year for 2023
Wellbeing - My Word of the Year for 2023
Each year, I come up with a Word of the Year. For 2023, this word is Wellbeing.
I have a cool little process for creating a word of the year, which I would like to share with you in this article.
You will need:
- A copy of my free Word of the Year Journey Worksheet
- A deck of Tarot or Oracle Cards
- A pen for journaling
- 15-30 minutes of self care time
Free Word of the Year Worksheet
In fact, you can grab a free journey worksheet by entering your details below.
Choose Your Deck
Firstly, pick a Tarot or Oracle deck to work with. This year, I’m working with the Witches Wisdom Tarot by Phyllis Curott and Danielle Barlow. This deck was a Christmas treat to myself, and it seemed like the perfect energy to begin the year.
The process is simple. Just shuffle your deck and draw two cards.
The first card gives you the theme for the year. This is the underlying energy you are working with for the next 12 months.
The second card is your focus. This is where you should place your attention to increase your chance of success in what you want to achieve this year.
I drew the 9 of Air for my theme and the Ace of Earth for my focus.
The 9 of Air is a card of transition. It talks about endings, change and new beginnings.
The Ace of Earth is a healing card concerned with life, health, and the bigger picture.
To extract more information from each card, I reflect on the cards, meaning relative to it’s position in this two card spread, then expand on this using the journaling prompts inside the journey worksheet.
The card reflection allows for a more intuitive and spiritual connection to the cards, while the journaling helps bring this guidance into the real world with practical and actionable support.
Choosing a Word
From the card pull, reflection and journaling, I ruminate on my worksheet exploration for a while and allow a word to come to me.
I often write down more than one thing in the beginning, making a note of anything that comes to mind until one word stands out and I get a ‘knowing’ that it’s the right one.
My word of the year is wellbeing. My cards highlighted how I need to do things differently, with my primary focus on health and vitality.
Through my journaling, I understood that a holistic approach to wellness needs to be taken, and this isn’t just about health and fitness, but the whole mind, body, spirit package.
This year is about prioritising my wellbeing so that I can achieve my goals, rather than pushing for my goals and mopping up any wellbeing issues along the way. I guess you could say I am going for prevention rather than cure, which also fits in with doing things differently.

- Make time each month to return to your word of the year, and use the notes page in the worksheet to expand and explore how this word is showing up for you. By returning to it regularly, it won’t get forgotten about, and you can gain greater guidance and insight as your travel through the year.
