5 Important Things To Do Before The Year Ends
Tradition is as tradition goes and we’re not about to give this one a miss. As the years draw to a close, we may feel the urge to reflect on our accomplishments and experiences over the past 12 months –challenges, obstacles, celebrations, and successes.
As we say goodbye to the past and hello to the promising new year of 2023, we'd like to invite you to join us in doing five things to mark the occasion.
Check in with yourself
Spend some time reflecting on your current state of health. Is your back giving you any trouble lately? Feeling less nimble recently? Can you say that you're completely overwhelmed? Consider your entire body and make a mental note of any parts that hurt, are tired, or need to be soothed. Those of us who are accustomed to a busy lifestyle might not notice this subtle change until we take the time to do it deliberately. When something doesn’t feel right, it's important to schedule an appointment with the doctor or counselors. It’s time to take stock of your health because when you feel great, so will your outlook on life.
Try something new where you live
Experience your city through the eyes of a visitor for a change; we all tend to take it for granted. It's common for people to pay the least amount of attention to the places they call home. After a while, we get comfortable with our routine and only venture to the same few places on a regular basis. If you have the chance, though, you might as well see what's in your own backyard. Check out the new establishments in your neighborhood, and research the list of happenings in town, the city is always bustling with interesting events. So go out there and support your local neighborhood establishments!
Make a list of all the things you’ve done well this year
People are frequently their own harshest critics. It is all too easy to dwell on the year's failures. Let's change the rhythm and focus on your accomplishments instead: they don't have to be major milestones like a career change, marriage, or the purchase of a new home. Small acts count as well, such as paying your bills on time, being able to include more mindful time into your routine, arriving early for appointments, reconnecting with long-lost friends, or even finally being able to exercise regularly. There is no such thing as a small victory that should not be celebrated because they contribute to a greater whole.
Reach out and make time for friends
Navigating adult friendship is hard. Work, family, and personal commitments have made it so that we can't even have a spontaneous get-together; instead, we have to plan our time ahead of schedule. Make time for meaningful conversations — now is the ideal moment to thank those who have supported, encouraged, and helped you over the course of the year. Don’t stress if you can’t, because a classic text, handwritten card, or a phone call will get the job done equally. There is no better time than the present to express to the people you care about how important they are to you.
Take a breather
Why? Because you're worth it, that's why! Finish off your vacation time before the year ends. Throw away the burden of a dreaded weekend and other obligation-related chores and use the time to do something enjoyable for yourself. Whether it's a manicure and pedicure, a therapeutic massage, a quickie vacation, or just staying in with a good movie, everyone deserves a little R&R every now and then. For you to be your best self, you should do whatever makes your heart sing to completely unwind and de-stress.
We hope this list inspires you to reflect on your journey over the past year and set your intentions for 2023.
