Designing Your Reset Retreat
Happy 2019. Are you starting to write goals, resolutions, intentions for the New Year? I started my ReflectToReset process in December. I decided to go into reflection before starting my 2019 goals list. @RayDalio has a principle, that I love, “Pain + Reflection = Progress”.
I realized I needed reflection time and a staycation, which I named ResetRetreat.
It’s been amazing. I have been doing fun things for the past week. You can do this for yourself. You must do this regularly for yourself.
1. Do a 15 minute mind map or brain dump of the things that relax you or bring you joy. My list is in the photo below.
2. Now take that list and schedule 2-3 activities this week. If you need a complete reboot do 1-2 things every day.
3. Use your list to schedule activities for 1Q19. Pack your calendar with these things, it will turn an unpleasant day or week around. This is part of your self-care and resilience plan for 2019.
