New Year…New You

by Dr. Kathleen Hall

Completing 2019 and Creating 2020

 It is the end of another year of your life. Before jumping into the next year why not dedicate time to reflect on the last 12 months of your life. This is a great process to do with your partner, family, and friends. Share your  yearly reflections with others and get their input. Our family has been doing this end of year practice for many years. I have kept a folder with our answers to these questions for decades. It is fun to look at past years together. Throughout the new year a buddy system helps you focus on your intentions for 2020 and keep on track. This 2019 yearly reflections, can inform and inspire you as you create your intentions and goals for the new year 2020.
