Pressing Pause

Episode #77

A guiding word for the year ahead

Gabrielle Treanor


Never mind making resolutions or setting SMART goals and you can definitely forget the new year new you nonsense! There’s one practice I love to do at the start of a new year that feels supportive and inspiring without any pressure.

In this episode we look at:

  • What choosing a guiding word for the year is and is not
  • How you can find the word that will best support you
  • What my word (or words?!) are for the coming year


  • Rooted – the self-study, instant access course to help you feel calm, in control and confident you can cope – is available to everyone, click here for more info. And I’m making it available for free to NHS staff
