Take time to relax and reflect this christmas lucystanyerlifecoach.comSeems obvious I know. But it’s easy to overlook the importance of taking time out from Christmas planning, visits to Santa and seeing family and friends to stop and reflect.

It’s a great feeling when we allow ourselves to take a step back and think about the goals that we set for ourselves in 2017 – whether we did this in a structured way or more informally.

It can change our perception of our lives immensely once we actually write out what we have done and achieved this year. Some of it may be ‘on plan’ and other things may have happened as you’ve gone along.

So why not take 15 minutes with a hot chocolate to recognise your achievements and feel more positive, capable and relaxed as you head towards the big day?
