A 2-Step Process to Choosing Your Primary Intention for the New Year

As I look ahead to the new year, and all the dreams and plans I have for myself and Jewish Food Hero, it’s easy for me to create a lot of projects and ideas.

The thing is, those projects and ideas can’t all get done at once. When we have so many choices, it’s common to freeze instead of choosing one soft way to start in the new direction you want to go. And it’s easy to spend too much time on some projects at the expense of others that would have a bigger impact, just because they’re on the to-do list and not prioritized.

Reflection and Intention Setting for Rosh Hashanah (+ a Worksheet With Prompts)

How I would like to prepare for Rosh Hashanah: by using the sacred time as an invitation to reflect on the past year, renew myself, and create my vision for the upcoming year.

I’d like to change my approach to Rosh Hashanah preparation this year, and I invite you to join me.

Journaling

When I was younger, journaling used to be a big part of my life. I journaled to process the events in my life and understand my own feelings.

I am slowly returning to it again, and it feels like I’m reconnecting with a good friend from my past. Now I journal by writing lists, drawing mind maps, and creating word strings.
