My Word for 2019

I finished my personal goal planning for 2019, similar to what I did at work for the last couple of years. I know, I know… it sounds terrible. But it lead me to some more insights for this new year than just the usual ”I’ll loose some weight”. I wanted more than the usual resolutions and I ended up with a list of things that I’d like to improve in my life, starting in 2019. I also tell myself that I don’t need to do all of it this year, that I don’t need to finish everything on the list. It’s a list of things that should guide me through this year with the means of helping me feel better. One thing I want to do though is to check in at the end of each month and see where I am. Check whether there is something that was left behind completely or that I really did good during the month. I hope that this helps me to stick to something and build new habits, instead of loosing track after a week… as usual. I feel really good about this list and I really think it might help me to work on some stuff.

Inspired by @macgenie, @klandwehr, @cheri and others on I thought of a word that could describe this year for me. The biggest pattern in my list of goals turned out to be around my health and fitness (what else? Well… a lot!). The one word that came to mind immediately was well-being. Ok… it’s kind of two words, but oh well ¯_(ツ)_/¯ It tells me to eat healthier, become more active and most importantly become more relaxed again. It also tells me to finally start with a couple of things I wanted to do since a long time.

I need to feel better next year. So this will be my word: well-being
