End-of-Year Reflection for Growth & Self Care

reflect on the prior year to see where you can improve your self care

End of Year Reflection

Let’s just take a moment to reflect on the chaos of the past few years and recognize it for what it has meant for our lives and families. Whether the chaos has included health-related, financial, or interpersonal stressors, times have been tough for every household and situation. So, at the turn of the calendar, there’s no better time to stop for a moment and check yourself to see just what you want to take into the new year with you and what you’d rather leave behind!

Focus on your year’s highlights

Before you can figure out just how to make your new year as productive as possible, you need to take a moment to figure out just what has made your year as good as it has been. Focus on personal and professional things that have given you joy and peace of mind. It’s important to be grateful for those positive things in your life as often as you can!

Understand what slowed you down or made things harder

Just like you did with the positives, focus on what made things harder for you as well. What slowed you down, and what made you feel like you were just spinning in circles or wasting your energy? Understanding those stressors and problems helps you learn how to avoid them in the future so that you can have an easier path to success.

Make sure you’ve got your health and safety bases covered

One of the most important details to focus on is how you care for yourself. This can be about taking sick days, but it can also be the idea of protecting your safety through having your various personal insurance policies in place and up to date. A quick call to your insurance agent will help you ensure that you’ve got that peace of mind.

Make yourself a prioritybe sure you are giving yourself some grace and self care

This is one of the most important things you can do to end one year and start another. Focus on keeping yourself a priority so that you can take care of your most valuable resource: you. Self-care is essential, even if you hear a lot of people making light of it. You must take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else or anything else.

Make an actionable plan for your new year

When you’ve got yourself in a central point of view, it’s time to make an actionable and feasible plan for the new year. This plan should be detailed, organized into small steps, and take your personal and professional needs into consideration so that you can find success waiting for you around every corner this year.

The beginning of the new year is the perfect opportunity to grow your life and reflect on how the last year has been for you. When you focus on these two aspects, you’ll properly equip yourself to make it the best one yet in a way that will be detailed, feasible, and full of true promise for the future. If that sounds like exactly what you’re looking for, then consider this your invitation to make it a reality!

Don't forget to include reviewing your personal insurance into this plan of self care, because after all, should something happen to you, your home, your family, your property or your belongings, being covered is peace of mind.
