These past two weeks have been a little bit hectic. Following the worsening situation around travel, I decided to change my flights to an earlier date and go to Czechia for nearly the whole month of December. Really lucky, I know. :) What I didn’t expect was, first of all, how much of a toll traveling would take on me (my flight got rescheduled to 5:30 am which meant waking up at 3 😱) and secondly, how much I’d miss my routines and space.
Slipping Into Old Patterns
Between spending time with family and trying to do some work, I gradually slipped into my old patterns of “Go, go, go! What’s next?” and have been going non-stop. It took another person telling me to make sure I got some proper rest over the holidays for me to recognize that this was happening.
How Often Do You Reflect?
Most of us, if we’re not careful, spend a lot of our mental energy on thinking about the future or, if we’re lucky, staying in the present. But how often do you make time to slow down and reflect? The end of the year is the perfect time to do just that.
Grab a pen and paper and jot down answers to these questions:
What were the highlights of 2021 for you?
What are you proud of and how did you grow?
How did you stand in your own way?
How will you make space for the things that you want to do in 2022?
And in the spirit of reflecting, here are the three most read blog posts from 2021. Enjoy!
