We are at the midyear mark and our main question is how are you taking care of yourself. As you crash those goals, and slay those business steps are you taking time to breathe, relax recuperate? I find it very important that we celebrate our milestones when we are mid point and here are reasons why it is important to do so:
1. It's good for your self esteem and mental health: Yes! It is important to celebrate your milestones and achievements because sometimes the mid year can either make one feel good or unaccomplished. But if you take the time to jot down the goals you have accomplished so far, it gives you the boost you need for the rest of the year. Also writing things down you find out that there are some things you accomplished that probably weren't even on your goals list for the year!
2. It helps your community understand the importance of celebrating milestones: Too often we like to get into the next moment, or the next thing, but what if sometimes we just took he time to slow down and just be more present? This is what celebrating your milestones at the mid year mark does, it allows you to reflect and just relish in the moments.
3. It helps you identify your strengths as you move into the second half of the year: We all know we sometimes need that extra push as we head into the second half of the year. Well celebrating your milestones will help you identify what you accomplished, how you did it and the people who helped you do it. It helps you tune into your strengths, your community as well as your focus. Being able to identify the strengths that made you accomplish the goal will allow you to leverage those strengths as you move into the new year.
