3 Questions to Ask Yourself in the New Year

Welcome 2017, we’ve been waiting for you

It’s 3 days into the New Year, and you’ve either made New Years Resolutions or you haven’t. I for one am not that fond of the idea of “resolutions”, they make me feel like I have not done enough in the past and do not make me feel that empowered for the future.

Chances are that you’ve made New Years Resolutions in the past that were short-lived. Whether it’s to lose weight, get healthy, find a new job, go out more, stop smoking, cut down on sweets or to spend more time in nature, we end up not fully completing our resolution for whatever reason (I’ll go into how to keep yourself accountable in another e-mail).

This year, I’d love you to try something different when it comes to your “resolutions”

3 Questions to ask yourself

Instead of making resolutions, I like to create a broader space to cultivate the things you want out of life. These can include all the stuff you want for yourself such as new healthy habits, job, relationships, etc.
With all of these questions, do not over think it. The answer that naturally comes first is usually on point.

1. What do you want to leave behind?

This is about identifying things, situations, emotions or people that are no longer serving you. Is it a relationship? Feeling? Emotion? Person? Habit? You may chose to leave many things behind.

When you think of these things, close our eyes and exhale it out.

2. What is worth keeping?

Identify what is going well for you. What is working and functioning for you that you’d like to keep doing into the new year?

When you identify what is worth keeping, strengthen it! You’re already doing it, how can you keep doing it and get even better at doing it? Be grateful for it. It’s already working for you and you’re doing amazing at it.

3. What do you want to introduce into our life for the next year?

What do you want to create for yourself? What would you want to manifest? A new quality in yourself? A new habit? How does this look like? What will our life be like when you introduce this to your life?

Inhale this idea and feeling into our body.

Finally, we all want to create better lives for ourselves, but it’s also important to be grateful for what we have and what is available to us because-
“gratitude turns what we have into enough.”
