How has your year shaped up this far?

The year is about half-way over and as we proceed with the next phase in our journey around the sun, why not take time to reflect about how it’s going?

Here are some questions to ponder. These can also be great to share and discuss with friends, family, colleagues or clients.

Find some things to celebrate and perhaps some areas you want to attend to in the second half of the year:

  • What can you celebrate about this year so far?  Where have you excelled and what successes have you had?  
  • How well have you celebrated your successes? – And learned from them?
  • Where have you failed? What have you learned from that?  
  • What habits (useful or not) have you developed this year?
  • How are you doing with your New Year Resolutions or intentions (if you set them)?

Some health and well-being related topics

  • Sleep: How much and how well do you sleep?  (It’s SO important!)
  • Food & diet:  How happy are you with your diet?  
  • Caffeine/alcohol/sugar: How much do you balance enjoyment and discipline with these seductive chemicals?
  • Body & fitness: What are you doing to move and keep your body fit, strong and flexible? 

How do you spend your time?

  • Devices: How much time do you spend on your devices (e.g., watching TikTok videos, fb reels, news alerts, doomscrolling or perusing other social media)? How satisfied are you with that time investment?
  • Friends/family: How much quality time have you spent with friends and family?
  • Entertainment: What kind of entertainment have you engaged in and how did it nourish you?  
  • Books/articles/podcasts: What have you read or listened to and learned from or enjoyed?
  • TV/movies: How happy are you with the time you’ve invested in front of these screens?
  • New learning:  What have you learned this year? What do you hope to learn by the end of the year?
  • Mind nourishment: How often have you taken time out, finding moments of peace and quiet or engaging in mindful activities?
  • What else would you like to celebrate or adjust for the rest of the year?

What’s next?

There’s no such thing as perfection, so we can’t stress ourselves out trying to be excellent at everything. Perhaps balance is the aim:  work/play, discipline/enjoyment, time with others/time with self.

Because our brains are always active, we are continuously seeing and experiencing new things and we can often think we would like to give something a try, if we can embrace doing this without the expectation of being particularly good at it, but simply acknowledging that we might find it enjoyable.

Enjoy your reflections, your celebrations and your planning!
