Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: What is your word for 2022! You can write about this, or any other running topic. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
It wasn’t hard to come up with my word for 2022. I feel that this word is applicable to many aspects of my life.
My word for 2022 is RELEASE.
1. allow or enable to escape from confinement; set free.
2. allow (something) to move, act, or flow freely.
I feel like I was in a contact state of stress during 2021 for various reasons. I don’t want to continue this pattern in 2022.
Like many other people, I have tons of anxiety and stress over Covid, especially this latest surge. I know I spend way too much time watching news clips and reading articles about record breaking positive cases and hospitalizations. While I always want to be informed, I know that I am overloading on the information. I want to work on releasing my need to keep up with the 24/7 news cycle. I also know that I’m taking all the necessary precautions to keep myself and my family safe, so I also want to release my constant need to second guess myself when it comes to this.
Sometimes at work I feel like I am pulled in so many different directions. I need to release the stress of this situation. I am going to plan on taking meditation and/or walking breaks when necessary. I’ve noticed that once I get to the point of being overwhelmed, my productivity is not great, so those breaks are necessary.
When it comes to working out, I know that I need to do a better job when it comes to warming up before a workout. I need to release the mentality that I don’t have enough time for this simple task. I also plan on working on doing more post workout stretching as well.
I’m really looking forward to taking the steps to release any negative habits this year and replace those with more positive and constructive habits.
Tell me: What’s your word for 2022?
