R is for Reflection

Join me on a journey towards a simple, sustainable and meaningful life. Throughout November we will be exploring each category of the A-Z guide to a simple, sustainable and meaningful life. Today we’re looking at R… Reflection.

This guide has been written from the point of view of someone living with chronic illness but the topics and concepts discussed are relevant to everyone and anyone.

R is for Reflection

Part of being mindful is to take the time to reflect on what you have done and where you want to be in the future.

I try to set aside regular time to sit and just be with my feelings and thoughts by meditating. I also try to spend time each year (or 6 months) to reflect and plan for the next period of time. It’s a way to help me continually review where I’m going and make sure I stay on track or change tracks when appropriate.
