Journaling prompts to reflect and inspire at the end of the year

In the time that nature finds a gentler pace, our social calendars fill with a flurry of parties, presents, dinners, and dates. But as a new year beckons, there’s no better occasion to reflect on the last twelve months and reset for the next.

From challenges to triumphs, and hurdles to highlights – sitting down with your thoughts can help you transition between seasons with clarity and calm. Setting resolutions and goals can be overwhelming, so we recommend a gentler approach to welcome the year ahead with more thought and less pressure.
