How to Turn Your Word of the Year into a Phone Background

“What one word resonates most with you for the year ahead, pulling together all that you want to make happen?”

This question in the PowerSheets Prep Work fires me up because it gives me a focus for my time, energy, and goals. Personally, I went back and forth between a few different words as I worked through my PowerSheets, and I love the word I ended up settling on: ROOTED.

Now that I’ve settled on my word for the year (and the Cultivate team has chosen ours as well!), I’ve been looking for a way to incorporate it into my every day life, particularly something I touch each and every day!

Enter our Word of the Year phone background! We were looking for a way to help you get your word of the year in front of you each day, and what better way than by being intentional with your phone background!

 

 

Here’s a screenshot of how I used the iPhone background to write in my word of the year! It’ll serve as a great reminder for me!

Want to make a background using your word of the year? Here’s a quick way to do it in your iPhone Photos app in under five minutes:

  1. Download our free iPhone background, and save it to your Photos.
  2. Click “Edit” in the top, right-hand corner of the photo.
  3. Click the circle with three dots, and choose Markup.
  4. Choose a pen, and write in your word of the year!
  5. Click “Done” and use as your wallpaper!

Still deciding on your word of the year? That’s okay, too! Bookmark this post, and come back to it once you’ve finished your PowerSheets Prep Work! We wrote a great blog post with some of our best tips for choosing a word that is fitting for your year!
