3 minute read

Choosing a word for the year that is all-encompassing of what you want to achieve and embrace is one of our favorite New Year traditions!

You’re saying goodbye to 2022 and you’re ready to embrace the fresh, new year ahead. Turning the page to January symbolizes a new beginning and inspires us to do and be our best. Selecting a guiding word is the perfect way to start.

Today, we encourage you to take a few minutes to sum up your hopes and dreams for 2023 into one meaningful word. Yes, one word. Something that you’ll keep at the forefront of your mind as you go about each day.

On the cover page of your Day Designer Flagship Planner, you’ll see a prompt for your Word For The Year. There’s a reason for it being there and today we’re focusing on just that, choosing your word for the year.

Why You’ll Love Having a Word for the Year

Choosing the single best word for the year based on your personal aspirations and intentions will guide what you focus on and embrace in 2023.

This one word can provide the “why” to your goals and help you live more mindfully each day.

This is your year! So live it to its fullest. Choosing a word for the year will be your prompt for intentional living this year.

Choosing the Perfect Word

When choosing a Word For The Year, think of a word that represents what you want out of this coming year. Reflect on the past year, think about your current values and goals, and be prepared to fully embrace the word you select. To get your thoughts flowing on how to choose a word of the year, here are just a few examples that the Day Designer community has shared with us recently:
