Choose your aspiration

As you may know, we are not a fan of New Year’s resolutions – they are usually doomed to fail. However we do love the idea of a word god the year. Selecting a word that encapsulates your aspirations for the year ahead provides a positive guide. January unfolds as a symbol of fresh beginnings, motivating us to strive for our best selves. The act of choosing a guiding word serves as an ideal starting point.

Take a moment today to distil your 2024 hopes and dreams into a single, meaningful word – a constant reminder as you navigate each day. Remember, it’s what this word means to YOU, some words can have slightly different connotations for each of us.

Tailoring this word to your personal aspirations, it becomes the focal point for your endeavours in 2024, offering purpose to your goals and fostering mindful living. Let this word be the driving force behind your routines, habits, and incremental progress.

For example if your word is Balance – you may be experiencing a crazy work week so take a moment to ask yourself; How do I bring Balance to my week? It may mean carving out 1 hour for a yoga class or 10min for some slow stretches before bed. Small things can make a big impact, not least because it gives you back control.

So, to help you get started, we’ve popped some word examples below. Take a read through and make a short list of those that resonate with you. You may find that a few words instantly shine, or you may need to sit with this for a few days to find the right word. Don’t rush the process.
