It is traditional to reflect on life and make resolutions at the end of a year or the start of the new year. However, you donít need to wait until the end of December to look back over the past few months and acknowledge what you have achieved and where you want to go from here. I think any time is a good time to do this. In fact, part way through the year can work better.

At the end of December we are often worn out. There has been all the end of year stuff to attend to and the emotional and financial stress of Christmas. Many people experience some sadness over this time as they remember loved ones who have passed and relationships that have fallen apart. There may have been arguments or disappointment that Christmas wasnít the perfect celebration of fairy tales.

New Yearís Eve arrives and we may be involved in organising or attending a party. Perhaps we have a quiet time at home, but not by choice. We may feel we are missing out on something. On the other hand we may be relieved to avoid attending a party, but worry we are being anti-social.

On top of all the turmoil of the Christmas/New Year period we may feel we should be assessing the past year and making resolutions or setting goals for the following year. Is it really the best time to do this?

Up until now I have been one who does make new yearís resolutions, accepting the belief new year was the time to do this. Until recently I hadnít considered choosing a different time to appraise my life, make resolutions and work out if I need to make changes.

Recently I was reflecting on the things I have sorted out and achieved since late last year and realised any time of the year can be appropriate for reflecting, appraising and making plans to move forward. Often part way through the year is a better time to be doing this because there is less stress. Perhaps any time is also a good time to stand still, take a deep breath and relax for a while before continuing on.
