Choosing an all-encompassing word for the year is one of our favorite New Year traditions!

You’ve said goodbye to 2021 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.

Today, we encourage you to take a few minutes to sum up your hopes and dreams for 2022 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!

Why You’ll Love Having A Word For The Year

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

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. Let your word be your prompt for intentional living this year.
