Life gets chaotic, and we don’t always take the time we need to work on or connect with ourselves. It’s time to slow down. Self-reflection is an important aspect of personal growth. When we non-judgmentally observe our thoughts, emotions, and experiences, we can better understand who we are and what path we want to go down. Incorporating mindfulness and reflection into your daily routine can enhance your self-esteem and boost your desire to become the best version of yourself.
To help you in your journey, here are 30 prompts for self-reflection:
- Who are you?
- What did you succeed in today?
- Are you happy? If not, what can you do to change that?
- How do you advocate for yourself?
- When do you feel safe?
