Approaching the end of the year can be a great time to reflect and set new goals. That is why in todays post we thought it appropriate to address this in todays post.
Disclaimer: We know this time of year can be really hard for many and our thoughts go out to anyone experiencing a difficult time. Please check out our post Christmas blues as it may very well resonate with you.
10 Questions of Reflection
Reflection is always good guiding us and helping us evaluate. Offering healthy, successful progression, and today we want to provide you with 10 questions as a guide for reflection.
We encourage you to go through these and write down your answers. These questions are also great to do with your child.
- What has been your best highlight of this year and why?
- What has been your worst highlight and why?
- How do you best capture your year in 3 words?
- If you had any goals, did you reach them? How does that make you feel? (If you did not reach them, know that everyday is a new day and it is never to late to start again.)
- What are you grateful for?
- Do you have any new years resolutions or goals? What are you going to do to ensure you get there?
- Where would you like to be this time next year?
- How would you rate your mental health state throughout this year out of 5? (5 being my mental health has been really good and 0 being it has been absolutely terrible)
Disclaimer: If you have rated yourself under 3 please do speak to someone. We have our trusted, qualified therapists here at Bennu, where you can in get in touch for further assistance and mental assessment.
9) What have I enjoyed doing this year? How did it make me feel?
10) What do you hope to discover about yourself in the year ahead?
Now that you have reviewed this year take some time to think about how you are feeling about entering a new year. Are you anxious? Are you excited? Or perhaps a bit of both. It is normal to have some anticipation towards the new year. Perhaps in the new year you are making a commitment towards your mental health as it is so important to take of your mind. Our qualified and trusted therapists can assist you with a mental health assessment as well as therapy and any other questions you may have, please do get in touch with us today here or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
