29 Dec Pause for year end reflections
Well, another year has passed. And what a year it was! We are not going to re-hash all of what 2020 has thrown at us. You have your own list of how the year has changed you and your loved ones.
We do invite you to reflect on this year though…have you ever completed a personal “year in review”? Contemplating and reflecting on things like:
- How did I grow?
- What are some of my best memories?
- In what ways can l be more compassionate to myself?
A few benefits to spending some time on this include, but are not limited to: spotting opportunities for life and personal growth, deepening self-knowledge, clarifying goals, and envisioning your dreams.
Conscious Pause has created a year-end document that is full of prompting questions to get your self-reflective muscle working…and maybe even stir your creative side to add your own important thoughts to the list.

*And now, to end 2020 on a positive and fun note, here are a few fun traditions that are used to ring in the new year from other places in the world:
In Brazil, as well as other Central and South America countries like Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela, it is thought to be lucky to wear special underwear on New Year’s Eve. The most popular colors are red, thought to bring love in the New Year, and yellow, thought to bring money.
Residents of Denmark greet the New Year by standing on chairs and jump off of them together at midnight to “leap” into January in hopes of good luck. Carefully mind you.
In Spain, it is customary to eat 12 grapes – one at each stroke of the clock at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Each grape represents good luck for one month of the coming year. In bigger cities like Madrid and Barcelona, people gather in main squares to eat their grapes together and pass around bottles of cava.
We’d love to have a conversation about what you discover. Share your thoughts with us on Instagram or Facebook using #bye2020 and #yearendreflections.
We hope you have a safe, joyful and conscious new year’s eve!
See you in 2021,
Sara and Karen
