Every new year I use this template to reflect on how the previous year went- the highs, lows, and everything in between. I’ve found that it’s not only really therapeutic in helping me to avoid feelings of overwhelm, but it also provides me come clarity for moving forward in mindfulness.

Take a moment to consider each category and reflect on the moments that made up your 2019. Think as you go about the things you’d like to bring along with you in to 2020 and the thing you’d like to leave back in 2019.

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES + PIVOTS

On the paths we set, we may come across challenges that threaten to lead us away from our goals. When we name them in advance and find a route away from them, we increase the likelihood that pivot, but we stay on track. List a few below.

The final step is to take a moment and create a visual representation of where you are going and what you are creating. Read through your answers above and create a visual in your mind about that particular goal being accomplished and what that LOOKS LIKE for you.

Focus on this visual and cement it in your mind so you can revisit it any time for motivation as you journey through 2020.
