The moments of reflection typically occur at the end of the year. However little do we know that failing our New Year Resolutions is quite common. 

We realise that our mistake is setting resolutions when instead, we should be setting intentions. Ashley Bellino of Stoned Crystals has created a step-by-step guide on how to set ourselves for success for our 2018 goals and how to get back on track with our goals when they fall. It's a great way to be reminded as it only takes a few minutes of your day to reflect on your goals for the year. 
According to Stoned Crystals, resolutions have negative connotations which doesn’t help us achieve our goals. By focusing our energy on ‘fixing’ the things that are ‘wrong’ with us we may be met with feelings of anxiety, depression and failure. A lot of us have that little inner voice that continually attacks and punishes us. Combine this with a New Year resolution that constantly reminds us of our shortcomings and the mental torment begins. For example, the resolution of losing weight implies that you are currently overweight and triggers a chain of negative thoughts and even visualisations that occur each time you think of the resolution. These constant reminders of what we are lacking only works to charge self-criticism, not positive change. 
I recently checked out the Intention Cards by Stoned Crystals which is essentially a new product that helps to guide and focus our goals in life. So the idea is that when you create and set intentions, we're setting our minds with positive mantras and affirmations towards the goals we set. It's definitely a great reminder to visualise the mantras and affirmations for everyday as I place the acrylic stand on my study desk. 

The Stoned Crystals Intention cards is now available here (RRP $39) and it includes 5 x instructional cards, 25 x intentional cards and 1 x acrylic stand all encased in a box. 


How do you set your goals for 2018?
