HAPPY (almost) NEW YEAR! 🎉
Last year I did a post on WOTY. And I really wanted to do something different to kick off 2020, but I just can’t because…
I’m obsessed with WOTY.
Here’s what it is & why it’s the best way to start every year.
WOTY = Word of the Year
A one-word “theme” for how you want your year to FEEL.
This is less overwhelming than setting specific goals. BUT yet still an effective way to give your year direction. One word can be a motivator and a guiding light to help you make decisions in all types of situations… food, fitness, and beyond.
How To Choose Your WOTY…
1. Get out a sheet of paper.
2. Write down/word dump how you want to feel in 2020. Put as many words on the page as you want. No right answers.
3. Take a breath, look at all the words you wrote, pick the one that best embodies how you want to feel in 2020.
Pro-tip: If you’re having trouble coming up w/ words…
– use some of the WOTY ideas below
– think of feelings you did NOT like in 2019 & jot down some words that are the opposite. 💕

I love the suggestions that you posted for WOTY, and I have decided to write down the word that inspires me most each day. So many of the words spoke to my heart. Expand really resonates with me today because I feel stuck in a certain area of my life. Thank you for your inspiration! You are beautiful!

JODI! I love the idea of writing down an inspiring WORD OF THE DAY! That will really set the tone for a great day. And when we commit to having a great day and repeat that daily…it leads to a great week, month, year….LIFE! Sounds like it is the perfect INSPIRED ACTION to help you wiggle out of feeling stuck! Happy New Year! xx DJB
