Christine Paulus Online Coaching new years resolution word 2022

Your word for 2022 represents your energy, captures your attitude, and is your companion for the year. It’ll be your daily reminder of what’s most important to you, help you to make decisions, give you focus, and lead you with clarity.

Let’s look back a couple of years: In 2019, my word for the year has been creativity. It guided me to take a month off to purely focus on reconnection with my inner creative side. That led to a lot of spontaneous and unexpected experiences. I took acting classes, acted as an extra, and even filmed my very first own short movie.

My process to discover my word follows the same structure every year. Follow these five steps to find your word for 2022:

1. Reflect

  • Which insights did I get in 2021?
  • How would I like to embrace those in 2022?
  • Which wishes, dreams and needs do I have right now?
  • How do I want to feel in 2022?
  • In which areas would I like to develop personally and professionally?

This will provide you with some first associations and ideas for your word.
