The new year is off to a fresh start. If you haven’t already, now’s a great time to: reflect on last year; and set your sights on the new year goals you really want this year.
You can (clearly) set goals at any point. BUT – I love the clean page a new year gives you to map out the changes you’d like to make and the dreams you’d love to see happen.
If you’re up for it, you’ll only need about 10 minutes. It’s a quick and powerful exercise.
It helps to put your phone on airplane mode, sit with your favorite cup of something (mine are Yogi Tea or Legacy Cacao), play relaxing music, light a candle (maybe even a fireplace??), snuggle under a blanket and journal your answers.
You can scroll through your calendar or camera roll from last year, and note significant events, who you were with and and how you felt. Also, answer the questions below that speak most to you.
Look back on how you’ve grown, who you met and what you learned in the past year. This can spark gratitude and wisdom to nurture your future goals. You’ll likely find uncelebrated achievements, life-changing lessons and magical humans who crossed your path.
