As the year wraps up, take a moment to think about what you've achieved and what you want for the future using these 50 questions.
Researchers studied New Year's resolutions in 2020 and found some cool stuff. If you want your resolutions to work, it helps to set goals in a positive way, like saying "be more active" instead of "lose weight." Also, getting support—having someone to talk to about your goals, tips for overcoming challenges, and extra exercises—makes success more likely.
You can follow these findings with a pro, like a life coach, or do it on your own. We're approaching the end of 2023, a perfect time to look back. Whether it's about your dreams, goals, or just how you're feeling, taking intentional time to understand yourself better is key.
So, try out these 50 questions to reflect on the past year, figure out what's working and what's not, and plan for the new year ahead.
