Self-Reflection: Time for a Mid-Year Check In


Welcome June.  We are halfway through the year of 2019.

  • College graduation season has ended.
  • High school graduations are on the horizon.
  • The school year is ending.
  • Some companies are nearing the end of their fiscal year.
  • Seasons are changing.

Life is busy. It is very easy to simply go with the flow or operate on autopilot. In order to be intentional and effective, we must make time for self-reflection and planning. Mid-year is the perfect time for self-reflection. Self-reflection is all about analyzing and understanding your thoughts and behaviors. Self-reflection allows us to make our emotional, mental, physical, and financial health a priority.

Below are 25 questions to help guide your self-reflection sessions this month. Remember to be honest with yourself.
