Project Me: Pick a Personal Word of the Year

When I stopped making New Year’s resolutions for the sake of having one on New Year’s Eve, it became easier for me to keep them. I often make New Year’s resolutions but now I do it at a point in the year when I need it.

It is my way to keep New Year’s resolutions that works.

The same can be said for choosing a personal word for the New Year. I thought about doing it last year when I saw all of the other cool blogger kids were doing it as a way to keep or instead of making a New Year’s Resolution but couldn’t come up with a word with meaning. The only word I came up with at the time was vague and too general. I knew I’d forget about it soon after January so I didn’t do it.

This year, I picked a personal word of the year a few weeks after New Year’s by happy accident.

My Personal Word for 2016 is the Danish word Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga.)

It is a cultural concept that many believe is the reason why Denmark rates as one of the happiest countries in the world. You can read more about what hygge is and how I plan to use it as my personal mantra for the year in this post on my food blog Lazy Budget Chef:
