New Year Reflection


Guided Reflection

Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? Do you normally make one?


Rather than focusing on a specific resolution or two, Kelly McGonigal, author, (“The Joy of Movement”, “The Science of Compassion”, “The Upside of Stress”) health psychologist, and educator and lecturer at Stanford University, has developed a practice over the years of an end of year/new year reflection.


In it, she asks a series of questions to help you make sense of the year that has just past and starts you thinking about how you can move into the new year with a sense of hope.


In listening to the 24-minute video, I was pleasantly surprised with how much the directed questions really helped me focus my thoughts on what might I be looking forward to this year and how can I help make this a better year not only for me but for those around me in my life.


And given the year that we all just experienced, what could be better?
