Reflections 🪞

This is my favourite season to reflect.

 

Here’s my annual review ritual: during the final week of the year, I go on a solo day trip with my laptop and journal, sit in the nature with a cup of coffee and go through this long annual review document (thanks, Chris).

 

Celebrate achievements, distill lessons learnt along the journey, and set new goals for the year.

I credit most of my success to my review system (annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly) as it keeps me on track and focused.

 

I will make a proper video about how I set goals next month.

 

For now, let’s spend some time reflecting on how 2023 went and what you want for next year 🍸

Mindfulness 🧘🏻‍♀️

Between you and I: I’m in the process of launching a brand new wellbeing quiz.

 

While writing about why most of us constantly feel overwhelmed, exhausted and distracted, I was reminded how simple life could be:

 

Be contented in the present moment.

 

Accept things as they are.

 

We don’t need to ruminate or worry.

 

In a nutshell, if we want to enjoy life and feel more fulfilled, we just need to be here.

 

And the quickest way to achieve that state is to align our body and mind.

 

Hence working out is my #1 form of self-care: when I’m in the water, when I’m upside down, when I’m progressively overloading, there is literally no way I can think of anything else without putting myself in some kind of risk.

 

Just be here.

 

What kind of mindfulness activity are you going to adopt today?
