How2: Self-Reflect

Not only is this a mid-week post, this is also a mid-year post… The perfect time to pause and check in on where you’re at with your 2018 experiences and goals moving forward.

I have noticed that by taking the time to ask myself the important questions, I have gained a better understanding of my emotions, strengths, weaknesses and the factors that drive me.

Keep A Journal

  • For the past couple of years, I’ve kept a journal. It helps me reflect upon my actions, my emotions and more. I write about what I love, what I want, what I feel and generally what has just been going on with me. It’s my process of bringing inner road-blocks or wishes to the light. Another huge perk to journalling is that I am able to go back and re-read and re-experience what I had previously wrote.

Follow Bright Big Life

  • I am accustomed to mindlessly tapping through stories or scrolling through my newsfeed, so I felt refreshed upon discovering Bright Big Life, a local coaching consultancy. Following their Instagram (@BrightBigLife) has provided me with little bursts of depth that my life lacked before. They post meaningful content fairly often and frequently provide me with questions that I didn’t think to ask myself.

Be Real With Yourself

  • When thinking about deep questions, it is important to do it to the best degree of truth you can. At the beginning, it was tough for me to break out of social conditioning and of beliefs that other people have put onto me. If you really ask yourself, you usually can find a much deeper answer to a question.

Getting into self-reflection may be awkward or tough at the beginning. The Bright Big Life story highlights from the 10 days truth challenge helped me delve within!
