How To Live Your Best Life In 2018 (+ A FREE Workbook)

Wellness

It's always been important for me to start the new year off with self-introspection.


When looking back over the last year I always consider, how did I discover more of myself? In what ways did I allow fear to hinder me? What experiences taught me the most about life and who I chose to align with? Most importantly, how did I grow?

Self-introspection is the gateway to self-awareness, which allows us to guide our lives from within. With the practice of introspection comes the building of character, the confrontation of fear, and the gift of fair, critical thinking to make better decisions. In order to create a meaningful life that is full of purpose, I knew that self-introspection was the key I needed to empower myself and unlock doors leading to tremendous growth.

So much can happen in one year.

Often times, we may not even realize the growth that we're experiencing. The process may not always be beautiful. Growth can be an extremely challenging journey; there are no rules, no guidelines on how to get it all right. In the timespan of one year, we may develop new relationships, take further strides in our careers, invest in new hobbies, and reconnect with parts of ourselves we thought we lost, all by making the conscious effort to take our growth seriously.

Through introspection, we can begin to understand who we really are and what we desire out of life.

In a year's time, we can witness relationships beginning to fall away, causing us to question the people we invested our love into. The career strides we thought were paving the way for so much forward progression can start to feel like they are headed towards a dead end or restricting us from the energy we need to progress. Our hobbies can sometimes get put on the back burner due to loss of interest.

The connection with ourselves that we once had gets lost because we're questioning ourselves more than we ever have before.

This is the moment of culmination that we need to look within and tap into our own power again.

These emotions are only compasses to what we need to fix, mend, and tend to within our lives. Through self-introspection, I was able to empower myself by embarking on a journey where I asked myself deep questions, answered them honestly, and was intentional in my goal setting. It's been key in taking my power back as a woman who has big aspirations (Editor-In-Chief of a thriving online mag is just the beginning).

Part of taking back my own power was deciding to create a workbook that would help to guide others through their own self-introspection to create the year they want for themselves, and thus, the life they want for themselves. This workbook was designed to inspire you to take back your power and empower yourself in the year of 2018.

It's important that we take full responsibility of our lives by engaging in activities that push us to the limits - this is where we break through.

Is this the year you break through for your breakthrough?

The old habits, old relationships, old careers that no longer serve us might have tried to take away your confidence, your love, and your energy. But it's time that changes.

Through affirmations, assignments, and step-by-step exercises in the workbook, I am providing you with the tools you need to take your growth to the next level. You can use the workbook daily as a guide. It is with great hope that you will find the strength to continue this new year mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy.
