Are You Being Intentional? Let's Set Our Goals Today.

What's the Difference Between Intentions and Resolutions?

Resolutions are typically broad, absolute goals that are difficult to achieve long-term. This makes failure and self-blame more likely which can negatively impact mental health.

Intentions are more focused, process-oriented objectives that allow for self-compassion and course correction when life happens. The emphasis is on incremental progress.

The best way to set intentions is writing down your goals using a SMART template to help guide you.

Examples of S.M.A.R.T Mental Health Intentions:

S - Specific

M - Measurable

A - Achievable

R - Relevant

T - Time-bound

Let's Set Our Intentions Today!

  • I intend to practice 10 minutes of mindfulness meditation 3 days per week for the next 3 months to reduce my anxiety levels.

  • I intend to establish a regular self-care routine of getting 8 hours of sleep and taking morning walks 3 times per week over the next 6 months to boost my energy and mood.

  • I intend to journal after therapy sessions 2 times this month to further process any emotions that arose and integrate my counselor's feedback.
