Your Year in Review: 50 Questions to help you reflect, appreciate and get excited for 2017

Your Year in Review: 50 Questions to help you reflect, appreciate and get excited for 2017

This is a repost of one of my most popular posts from a couple of years ago, improved and fully updated. There's also a free 5-page worksheet that you can download at the bottom of this post.


These few days between Christmas and New Year's, when everything feels festive and special and you get a break from your usual day-to-day routine, is the perfect time to reflect and look back on everything you have experienced, discovered and achieved during the last 12 months.

A yearly review is also a great exercise in mindfulness and conscious living. It’s a way to slow down, reminisce about your favourite moments, make you sure you take the time to appreciate all the little and big things that were a part of your life in the past year, and also to draw some conclusions about which kinds of things make you happy and which don’t.

If you are into setting goals and already have some ideas for new year’s resolutions or things you want to achieve in 2017, looking back at your past year will also help to ensure that your goals are truly in line with your priorities and values.

To get your annual review started today's post features 50 questions that you can use as prompts to reflect on different aspects of your year. Write your answers down, either in full sentences or even just as bullet points. If you like you can also use this little worksheet that I made with all the questions and space for your answers.

P.S. I finally pulled the plug and changed my blog URL from to INTO MIND hasn't felt quite right for a while, so I thought what better time than New year's to make the switch. If you subscribe to my blog via email or Bloglovin' nothing should change for you, but if you follow me via RSS you may need to check the feed.
