Reflect before 2022

As the end of the year approaches, you may be suffering from the holiday season burnout.  The season can be incredibly fun but notoriously stressful at the same time. Let’s remind ourselves to take time to relax and to reflect as we enter the new year. You might be thinking, “What does this mean?” or “How can I take time to relax after months of constant stimulation?” The answer is simple: gratitude.  If we approach the new year with gratitude for all the accomplishments, hardships, and memories that we have made in 2021, we can pave the way for 2022. 

One of the best ways to reflect and practice gratitude is to write in a journal. We’ve compiled a list of journal prompts if this is new to you. 
Gratitude and Reflection Journal Prompts:
1.     List ten things you are grateful for going into 2022.
2.     What is something that you are proud of?
3.     Think about a time of hardship this past year. How did you handle it? Did you handle it well? How can you improve?
4.     What is something that brings you comfort in times of struggle?
5.     Describe what you are looking forward to in 2022.
6.     What are your strengths and how do you use them to better your life?
7.     Who is someone you are thankful for and what would you want to tell them?
8.     Overall, how would you rate your 2021 on a scale of 1 to 10? Explain.
9.     If you could change anything about the past year, what would it be?
10.   Describe your favorite memory of 2021.
Of course, you’ll need a special place to write. Though any old piece of paper will do the trick, we have a few favorites to share. Stay grateful and self-aware through journaling with the Engraved Peacock Feather Non-Personalized Notebook from Crane.

Another way that you can show gratitude entering the upcoming year is by thanking the ones you love. Of course, there is no better way to thank your friends and family for all they have done this holiday season than by writing them a thank you note. One of our favorite styles of thank you notes is Crane’s Round Corner Thank You Card Stationery/Thank You Notes! These thank you cards are the perfect mix of elegance and class with their cream color and gold details.
