This year we want to help you put yourself first, so that you feel good and make a positive start to this brand new year.
A great way to start 2020 is with a yearly review, where you dedicate some time to take stock and appreciate all of the accomplishments you made last year.
Here are some thought starters to help you really step back and look at 2019 in a positive light. It might be a good idea to write these down if you’re doing this exercise on your own. You could also use them as discussion points if you carry this exercise out with a partner, friend or family member.
- What were some of my best accomplishments last year?
- What steps did I take to improve my life?
- What steps did I take to improve my relationships?
- What changes did I make to my life that are now making me happier?
- What do I wish I had given more time to?
Consider these questions in relation to all areas of your life, there are no wrong answers or accomplishments that are too small. Evaluating your year like this will help you appreciate all of the positive achievements of the year as well as helping you to identify areas you’d like to make further improvements so that you can set yourself new goals for the coming year.
The most important thing is to prioritise yourself this year, make time for yourself each day to work toward your goals, because when you are feeling happy and fulfilled you can offer more to the people around you. Next week we’ll be sharing our top tips for self-care.
