Another year has almost gone by, but now is the perfect opportunity to reflect and build a plan for next year.

I’ve come up with a set of questions to help you reflect, focus and build a plan to make your 2016 a successful year that embraces mindfulness and conscious living.

By reflecting on moments that happened in your life, externally and internally, you get deep into your subconscious and reassess whether your goals are in line with your priorities and values. Not only this process will help you get to know yourself better, but it will also help you reshape your focus and feel more inspired as you think through.

Go and get a pen, print these questions out and read them. When you’re ready find a happy place without distractions and write your answers down.

Remember, there’s no correct answers and you’re your own judge.
