Welcome to 2021, a new year after a non traditional 2020. This past year may have left you feeling confused, frustrated, or anxious. We encourage you to look back on 2020, and create a list of all the great things that came out of this unexpected year. Maybe more quality family time, the opportunity to explore the great outdoors, the chance to organize your home, but most of all the gratefulness you may have found in yourself after the adversity our nation faced.
After a unique year, it’s important that we create positive intentions for 2021, at home and in the classroom. January is a great time to create a list of intentions to increase awareness and focus on as we manage the changes in our daily routines.
We prefer to set intentions over resolutions, resolutions are goals for the future, whereas intentions allow us to focus on the present. When the focus is on intentional acts we allow ourselves the opportunity to focus on our current self while also focusing on the journey of creating our best self.
Here are a few ways we can remain intentional in our everyday lives as well as in the classroom.
Take a moment, self reflect, write down your intentions for 2021.
Happy New Year!
