New Year’s Questions – An Exercise to Begin 2016

I picked these questions up at a wonderful workshop I attended a few years ago and have found them very useful. I use them for myself every year.

Before beginning a new year in full force, it can be supportive to complete and acknowledge the previous year. I hope that spending a few minutes with the following questions will help you complete 2015 and start 2016 on a strong note!
