Navigating a post-pandemic world has brought about many new ways of living. More of us are working at home and connecting mostly-virtually for the first time. For many, 2021 served as a reminder of the importance of slowing down to embrace the small wonders of the world.
While it may be difficult to imagine any good news, there was a lot to celebrate in 2021:
What about you? What achievements did this year bring? Were you one of the 65% of workers making a career change? Perhaps you’re part of the growing number of people prioritizing wellness? Maybe you visited a new place on your Vika+?
Before the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, take some time to reflect on the year, using your reflections to both celebrate yourself and your efforts, as well as pave the path for your 2022 intentions.
Now’s the time to harness the already-building momentum towards supporting health and wellness. Here are a few things to consider as we welcome the new year:

Self-reflection is key to continue improving yourself. Be sure to carve out time to see the progress you’re making towards your goals, or determine if any adjustments need to be made. Also, give yourself some well-deserved credit. You’ll be setting goals and sticking to a schedule to become a better version of you—and that’s worth celebrating.
