Reflections on 2013

So 2013 is drawing to a close. How has the year been for you? I love to use this time of the year to reflect, consider highs and lows, what I might want to leave behind and what I might want to take with me into the New Year.

If you suffer with stress, anxiety or low mood, this can be a great tool for gaining deeper awareness into what helps and what hinders in your life.

Here are some suggested questions you might like to ask yourself, noting that when I do this exercise myself or with others I like to start and end on a positive!

  • What were the highlights of 2013?
  • What did I learn?
  • What challenged me the most?
  • What did I do to help myself overcome those challenges?
  • What made me happiest?
  • What am I most grateful for?

Feel free to add your own questions and tell us about your year, we’d love to hear how it was for you and send you all good wishes for 2014.
