The Christmas Life Debrief

As we wind down and reconnect with people we haven’t seen for a while, Christmas is a rare opportunity for a personal end-of-year review – a time to reflect on what we’ve learned, and make plans for our future goals
ILLUSTRATIONS BY OANA BEFORT

Just like annual reviews at work, designed to help us uncover bigger-picture stuff, having our own-life debrief can highlight our strengths and uncover the areas which need attention. It’s not so much about digging around for New Year’s resolutions, more an exercise in checking in on our achievements and discovering what makes us fulfilled. But unlike your work review, you set the agenda, which requires some reflection. ‘It’s the best way to recognise where things have gone well and where they haven’t.

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the Christmas issue of healthy! In the December/January edition, we look at how to avoid stress and stay upbeat over the festive period. Plus, we’ve got some tips on making healthier choices at the Christmas party and setting achievable goals for the year ahead. Many of us suffer with stress over Christmas, so for this issue, we wanted to think about all of the positive things that come with it, too. From our fresh-thinking article on perfecting the art of getting tipsy, to advice on how to break the Christmas weight-gain/January diet cycle, we’re approaching the colder months with a positive outlook. In the name of balance, writer Laura Potter looks at why we should practise Pilates to build strength and improve posture. We also look into the benefits of art therapy, as well as offering some crafting tips for you to try. And if you’re hosting your own festive party this year, don’t forget to flip the magazine over for festive recipe inspiration in our dedicated food section. Find all of this, plus our usual expert-led content, in the latest issue of Healthy.
