2019 is winding down, and preparations for 2020 are already underway for many. Instead of a resolution, have you thought about trying one of these word fo the year ideas?

I love these 100 word of the year ideas you can use as a way to guide your intentions, goals, choices, and overall plans for 2020. Since I started creating a word of the year

What is a word of the year?

A word of the year is exactly as the name implies. It is a word you choose to be a theme for you for the year. This word will help guide you and your choices as you grow and develop throughout the year. The first step is coming up with word of the year ideas that work for you.

Why is choosing a word of the year a good idea?

For a lot of people, resolutions just don’t really work.

But there is something special about setting an intention for a year that helps you reach your goals. Choose a word from your word of the year ideas that encompasses what you are aiming for, or perhaps how you want to feel, is a great way to set the tone for the year without getting too specific.

How do you choose a word of the year?

You could simply pick a word out of a hat if you’d like to leave it up to fate, but getting in touch with where you’d like to be at the end of the year and then finding a word that would help move you in that direction might work better.

Journaling is a great way to get in touch with where you are and where you want to go in order to get some of the best word of the year ideas for yourself.

If just one word doesn’t work, you could also choose a phrase or even a short quote. But don’t get too detailed or long. The point is for this to be a theme, and the more you add the more complicated it will become.
