Around this time of year, a lot of people begin setting New Year’s resolutions. If you are happy doing so, go for it. But if you’re like me, frustrated with their limitations and ineffectiveness, this episode is for you. Join me in exploring a better way to enact change. This week, episode 136 of the Positively Living Podcast is about practicing reflection instead of resolutions!
In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I share why I don’t do new year’s resolutions and give you actionable steps to take right now to assess where you are and where you’re going so that you can set the foundation for your goals and the habits that will support them.
I cover the following topics:
- Why resolutions aren’t preferred and how reflection is superior.
- The extensive list of benefits you can receive from practicing reflection on a regular basis.
- My guidelines for how to best practice reflection.
- My short set of open-ended questions that you can use in your reflection practice.
Reflection may feel overwhelming at first as a lot of feelings, emotions, and revelations may come up but it is important to process them so you can go into a new stage of your life feeling refreshed and ready for what’s next.
