The Benefits of Self Reflection

"An unexamined life is a life not worth living” ~ Socrates 

How well do you know yourself? Do you think about why you do the things you do? Self-reflection is a skill that can help you understand yourself better.

Personally at the JMT Mind Gym I reflect via a journal on every client, workshop, and seminar post session. It enables me to compound learnings and deepens my understanding of clients, and more importantly my own feelings and insights

This April article explores the benefits and importance of self-reflection, as well as some strategies to help you practice it and incorporate it into your daily life. 

Spending time in self-reflection can help build greater self-awareness; involves practicing mindfulness and being present with yourself at the moment, and can help you improve your communication skills, which can benefit your relationships. 

Understanding what you’re feeling can help you express yourself clearly, honestly, and empathetically.

Below are my own reflection questions/template and fundamental structure, which you are welcome to utilise. 

What was the biggest win? What worked well? What went well? What didn’t work? What didn’t go well? 

What can be implemented next week to do the working well better, and what did we learn from what didn’t work? And what can we action to reflect learnings?

I hope this helps.
