Self-Reflection

Self Reflection

Anxiety, the life sucker! How many times have you heard that expression, or even felt it? Anxiety is different for everyone, but everyone who suffers from it knows that “feeling”.
 
Self-reflection is something that anxiety sufferers should connect with. Who you are and even the events that you’ve had personally help to lessen anxiety. Self-reflection will also help lessen depression. 

How we see ourselves

Everyone sees themselves in different ways. Smart, kind, slow, lazy, or even misunderstood. Any way that you view yourself, you know that no one fully knows you. This is our self-image. No matter what adjective you choose, it is the I in the face of the mirror, the I that has dreams, wants to explore, has feelings, and thinks. Our self-reflection is very powerful. Everything that we do, say, hear, and feel, is largely influenced by how we see ourselves.

Our thoughts can trigger different things in us. Stress being one. You might hear some from the Medical Field say that we must be careful because our thoughts can cause anxiety attacks. Of course, this is true for some of us. We have been able to notice and avoid our hormone stresses. Some that suffer will limit their inner awareness so that they don’t have to deal with it. Sometimes, this strategy can lead to trouble, because it is something that we DO think about, something that we keep out, deliberately. I believe that this makes us more aware of what we are doing.

Questions
  • If your heart could talk, what would it say?
  • What do your emotions look, sound, and feel like?
  • What do you remember about your 16th birthday?
  • When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
  • What is 1 thing that you could do everyday, for an entired year, and feel fulfilled from it?
  • What is your favorite smell?
  • Which song makes you feel good?
  • What film inspires you?

Self reflection will help you in understanding yourself on a deeper level.  It helps you in: 

  • Soul searching   
  • Greater self awareness  
  • Improves your confidence
  • Self Improvement
Respond vs React

We have all said things that we are not proud of, especially with those “In the moment” instances. Your reactions are just proof that there are no ramifications of your actions, you are simply reacting. Staying calm so that you can assess the situation, taking time to reflect on it, you can have a better, more thoughtful response. Make a rule for yourself. Give yourself time to address a situation that you are upset about.

Who are you?  What do you want in life?  This is a “know thyself” benefit.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What are my beliefs?
  • What ideas are important to me?
  • What are my core values?
  • What are my weaknesses?
  • What difference do I want to make?
  • What are my strengths?
  • What are my passions?
  • What do I love?

Thoughts

There are so many questions that we can ask ourselves in order to help with our self refelection.  These can be the most relevant questions to questions that we never thought to ask.  Here is a small list of questions that you might want to ask yourself.

Work on some of these questions.  Keep a journal to help you reflect.  Journals are great to have because you can go back & read what you were going through at that time and be able to see if it helped you with your anxieties if you suffer.  For a free journal workbook on self reflection, click HERE to download yours today.
