The New Year is a good time to take stock. After you have checked your smoke detector batteries:
- Update your hierarchy of values (HOV). Have your priorities changed?
- Review your cost-benefit analysis (CBA). Do you have a clearer picture of the pros and cons?
- Look over your list of vitally absorbing creative interests (VACIs). Should you be making more time for them?
- Take stock by filling in a lifestyle balance pie. Do you need to work on an area of your life?
If you’re making New Year resolutions, fill in a change plan worksheet. You can use the tools of SMART Recovery to plan and implement many changes in your life.
