There’s no denying, this year has been a really tough one for many of us. Having a break from the stringent lockdown rules over the Christmas period has given us all a chance to have a little breathing space - something that’s essential for the mental health of so many people. It’s the perfect chance to reflect back on a tough year and plan ahead for the next, hopefully more positive one.
Reflect back on your favourite moments on this tough year
And as you look back, reflect on those favourite moments you had during 2020. No matter what’s going around us, you can still focus on making the world around you a little better. For us, that means focusing on creating cherished memories and sharing precious moments with our families. It’s about making each day a positive experience for everyone we come into contact with.
Yes, COVID has made that all a little difficult - but that’s why it’s so important to focus on the positive. Take a few moments to think and reflect back on your favourite moments of 2020. Put the bad memories away. Talk about what lifted you up this year and find those moments that made you laugh or smile.
Remember what makes this time of year special
Because that’s what this time of year is all about. It’s about celebrating what you have achieved, being grateful for what you have, and planning ahead for a positive and bright future. It’s a special time of year, where people traditionally come together - whether that’s in person, chatting on the phone or video calling loved ones - to celebrate.
And this year we can all do with a little celebration and love. As we reflect back on what has been a tough year for many, remember those cherished moments of happiness and joy.
Here at Bella and Bow we’re all about creating cherished memories and for those to happen, you can be in any situation, place or with or without other people around you. You create those memories and moments so they keep you warm and smiling - they keep you moving forward - regardless of what’s going on in the world around us.
Reflections and new plans for the future
Talking of moving forward, don’t spend all of your time reflecting back! Yes, it’s been a tough year, but spend some time over the Christmas period planning ahead too.
It’s a great time of year to turn those reflections into future actions - don’t wait for New Years eve! With so many of us having extra time at home, many hobbies were started and plans made during lockdown. So what can you do to implement and improve on those things? What plans can you make, to give yourself something more positive to look forward to next year?
There’s no doubt that this year has been a tough one. So look after yourself, your loved ones and your mental health. During this Christmas period create some memories and positive moments to cherish. Spread a little joy and happiness and share a little more love and positivity. And on that note, we want to do our bit - by sending you lots of love and wishing you all a merry Christmas and happy new 2021.
