New Year Mantras -

The start of every year brings me so much excitement and joy. I don’t know if it’s the idea of getting to start over or getting to build/add on your dreams, but I always love taking the time to reflect what I want in the New Year. Personally, I love laying out my goals, intentions, and mantras. And this year, I’m partnering with Cascade Ice Water to share 3 mantras I’m embracing this year.

Before I jump into my three main 2022 mantras, let’s meet Cascade Ice Water. Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water is made with two simple ingredients: carbonated water and natural organic flavors. Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water has 0 calories, no sugar, no GMOs, and are vegan. Plus, USDA Organic Sparkling Water comes in a variety of flavors including organic lemon lime, black raspberry, pomegranate mango, and more (check out the full list of flavors and store availability here). I’m excited to partner with Cascade Ice because they directly align with my first mantra of 2022.

Here are my New Year Mantras with Cascade Ice:

“I choose to love, nurture, and respect myself.” 

New Year Mantras -

In 2022, I’m continuing to prioritize loving, nurturing, and respecting myself. Loving and nurturing myself means taking the time to move my body with yoga, walks with my dog Boone and husband Brandon, and morning runs. Loving and nurturing myself also means being intentional about the food and drinks I put into my body. 

I’ve always leaned into intuitive eating, where I eat when I’m hungry and I stop eating when I’m full.  In 2022, I want to continue to raise my awareness for what I’m consuming and drinking. With Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water, I know I’m choosing a healthy drink option without sacrificing flavor and variety.

In addition to loving and nurturing myself, I’m also choosing to respect myself in 2022 by not overworking and being intentional about taking time off and breaks. As a full-time content creator, I love what I do, and it can be easy to work through weekends and holidays. Overworking leads me to burnout and fatigue. And in 2022, I want to prevent burnout and fatigue so I’m respecting my time and prioritizing my time off. 

“I invite well-being and joy into my experience.”

New Year intentions - New Year Mantras -

I’ve been repeating this mantra at least once a day because I truly want well-being and joy to be a dominant part of my experience. I know that life is supposed to be fun. I know that life is supposed to be about the joy and the journey. I want to enjoy my creative career and I want my body to feel good as I move about my life. I want to enjoy my time with my husband, family, and friends. 

“Dream bigger and allow yourself to realize those dreams.”

New Year Mantras -

As a full-time content creator, I’m ready for the next step in my creative career. I was nervous to admit and acknowledge these two goals brewing in my head last year. But in 2022, I’m ready to share them: I want to write a book for influencers and find a publisher. I also want to pitch and host a TV show sharing the best photo spots in America. 

I know I can be a successful influencer the next 5 years doing what I’m currently doing now. But I’m ready for the next steps – I’m ready to expand my creative career beyond the digital space. While it might seem audacious to write a book and pitch a TV show (without any prior experience as I worked 6 years in the aerospace industry, not entertainment), I see myself as a published author and tv host. 

I know a guide for how to get started as an influencer will be helpful for my audience. I also know that sharing the best photo spots in each city I visit will be a great niche travel show for gen z and millennials. I know I have the business acumen and the creative talent to forge my own path.
