26 FAB Questions to Bring in the New Year Mindfully
Tell me if this sounds familiar…
It’s December 31 and you’re feeling PUMPED about your list of New Year’s Resolutions.
Maybe you even signed up for a new exercise program or bought the latest health & nutrition book that your friends have been raving about or decided to do the Whole30 and give up alcohol for a month…
The new year rolls around and you stick with these new habits for a few weeks — maybe you even see some results.
But by mid-February, you are right back where you started, and those newly adopted habits have flown out the window.
What helps me is to first reflect back and ask myself some questions about this past year; and then I use those questions to find the answers to what I need to change to make the new year even better!
Take some time for yourself and sit quietly to reflect on these questions. And if you need some extra support this year, try out my F.A.B. Daily Lifestyle Planner + Workbook.
