As we close out one year and begin another, it's essential to take some time to reflect on the past twelve months. What have we accomplished? What were our highlights and lowlights? What did we learn?
Taking a good, hard look at our lives can be challenging, but it's also incredibly powerful. It allows us to see where we've been and where we want to go. It gives us perspective on our choices and helps us learn from our mistakes. And perhaps most importantly, it allows us to set realistic goals for the year ahead.
How to Do a Life Review
A life review is simply a process of reflection. You can do it by yourself or with a friend or therapist. There are no right or wrong answers, and there is no specific format you need to follow. The only goal is to take an honest look at your life and see where you've been and where you want to go.
There are many benefits to doing a life review. First, it can help you identify your values and priorities. What's important to you? What do you want more of in your life? Doing a life review can also help you gain perspective on your choices. Are you happy with the way things have turned out? What would you change if you could do it all over again?
