Practicing Reflection


If your year started like mine, it left you reeling from a packed schedule and more on your plate than you thought you had. I came into 2021 with a peaceful mindset, having just taken the bulk of two weeks off, but somehow still felt a little blindsided when my first day back at work came around.

I decided I needed to do something before I allowed my year to continue down this path. So this past weekend, I spent some time reflecting and planning and now I feel even more ready for whatever the rest of this week - or 2021 brings!

If your experience has been similar, or if you just really enjoy reflecting, then check out this episode of "Practicing Connection in a Complex World" - In this episode, we take some of our favorite reflection questions and put them to good use.
