Rose: January Intentions

Instead of resolutions, I decided last year that I would set monthly intentions. This lasted for a few months until I eventually forgot about them (remember, most resolutions are broken within the first month). But this year, I want to bring these back. I figure if I keep the intentions simple enough, I’m more likely to stick with them. Right?

These items will come as no surprise, given my word of the year. I mostly just want to be consistent, and these intentions should help.


Be timely. I am notoriously late for work. It’s only be 10 or 15 minutes, and no one truly cares, but it matters to me. I live only 10 minutes from work, so this shouldn’t be that difficult. My goal is to arrive between 8:45-50 a.m. each day. That way, if I leave promptly at 5 p.m., I won’t feel guilty. And I’ll have extra time to settle into the work day, too.

Be friendly. I am notoriously bad at taking real lunch breaks. I usually don’t leave my desk. I’m answering emails as I’m eating a salad. I do take breaks (mostly to check Facebook), but they don’t leave me refreshed. So, when my friends invite me to eat lunch with them, I’m saying yes. At least 2-3 times per week, I want to eat lunch downstairs with my colleagues.

Just be. I am notoriously bad at sitting still. Especially in my own home. I can always find something to do. While it’s ambitious and keeps me on top of things, I often don’t feel rested in the evenings. I’d like to focus on just being, especially after 9 p.m. I want to read books, check out a magazine or watch a funny show. I don’t want to be glued to my phone or computer (especially after 10 p.m.!)

How about you? What are your intentions for January?
