I read a recent post that suggested the ending of the year is a great opportunity to quietly reflect on what some of your personal or professional highlights were. What about your wellness highlights? That might be a nice lens to look through. What did you do for your own personal wellness in the last year, that you can thank yourself for? How did you recognize the importance of your own well-being? What self-care practice did you explore or incorporate? Here’s the challenge: DO NOT explore the ways in which you fell short from your standards or expectations. Instead, as Susan Reifer beautifully explained when she laid out how a gratitude practice can work, try focussing on something you have agency over, something you can thank yourself for doing.
I am thankful for the constant reminders that well-being is a joint effort, and this is absolutely the right place for me to be working on mine. That’s because of you.
And all our contributors. Who are willing to speak up, show up, and be seen. Which requires courage and vulnerability. And which makes us all better.
