As we come towards the end of the year and Christmas is in sight, it is so easy to get caught up in the rush of life. The endless list of presents to buy, the cards to write, the extravagant recipes to make. However, it is also one of the most wonderful times to practice mindfulness and reflect on the year.
It only takes 5 minutes to stop and reflect.
Whether reflecting on your happiest memories or greatest accomplishments in the year you can find the positives as we come to the end of this difficult year.
Because even though this year has been anything but easy there are many moments to be grateful for.
For me, it was having time this year to enjoy more of nature when going on walks. Also spending more time with my immediate family and pets. In the past, I’ve always been so busy that moments like these were rare, but this year they became a common occurrence.
So what were 3 positives about your year?
As well, you could even make mindfulness and reflection a part of your New Year’s resolution. One idea is that you could get a jar and throughout 2021 write down positive memories and so next New Year’s Eve you can look back and reflect on all that happened. Such a simple idea but a great way to make mindfulness a part of your daily life.
