Take some time to reflect.

Introspection and reflection are helpful tools for self-awareness. While rewinding the activities of the day may seem like a ‘Dear Diary’ idea, introspection delves a little deeper into your thoughts, going beyond what you did during the day. When done with purpose, regular introspection can help make better decisions, increase confidence and communication at work, and creates resilience.

We’ve put together a worksheet with prompts and questions to help make your introspection journey easier. You can print the worksheet or just fill the answers out separately. You can make this a daily, weekly or monthly occurrence — whatever works best for you! 

A worksheet to help you check in with yourself.

How is your heart feeling? How is your body feeling?
