Quarterly/Yearly Personal Retreat Topics
Time to dream and bring those dreams to life
You are the navigator of your ship. At least every 3 months and definitely once each year, step back and review the voyage you are now on. Could your life be more interesting, more rich and fulfilling? Where might you go, where you’ve never been before? Open to new possibilities for new destinations and new venues and important side trips.
The Quarterly/Yearly Re-Treat Topics below focus on aspirations, holidays, successes, failures, life lessons, relationships, health, finances, life purpose – on what is most important to you.
Ideally, give yourself one full day every 3 months for life planning. Treat yourself to a real Re-Treat. If possible, go away to a new location – getting out of our normal sphere helps bring new perspectives. Really put your life under a microscope and do an in-depth review. Then get out the telescope to raise your sights and shoot for a new star.
Take a minute right now and book in your calendar a Quarterly Re-Treat day every 3 months to do this important review.
Quarterly/Yearly Personal Re-Treat Yourself Topics:
- Create sacred space – Ideally, give yourself a whole day for rest and inner reflection. If possible, go to a different place where you can enjoy solitude and new surroundings. If you like, use a personal ritual or meditation to affirm your intention to open to your higher guidance.
- Spend time in stillness and nurturing – Pamper yourself! Throughout the day, give yourself blocks of free time. Take a few deep breaths and relax. Try a short meditation or do nothing at all to give yourself space. Or engage in activities that truly nurture you, like singing, playing or listening to music, dancing, artwork, taking a hot bath, spending time in nature, etc. Just be with yourself. Go inside and observe and sense yourself – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Watch your thinking, experience your feelings, accept what is and let go of resistance.
- Review your monthly review notes for the last 3 months.
- Do some or all of the quarterly Smart Questions.
- Review your Life MAP to see if anything is to be added or brought forward at this time.
