- Fill in online questionnaires: structured questions encourage introspection and reflection
- Lose your self-limiting Gremlins, the soulless remnants of a judging family system. Forgive yourselves for imperfections, and offer yourselves kudos when you deserve them.
- Try daily check-ins: ask yourself how you feel. Consider what triggers contribute to the day's negative emotions. Assess what causes you to feel happy. Try to maintain a forward-looking and proactive mindset.
- Spend more time with people and less time staring at a screen. Human mirroring helps us establish our sense of who we are in relation to others.
- Asking feedback helps you gain a more objective perspective. Without the help of others who can be trusted to give us honest feedback, we might occasionally find ourselves living in our own little bubbles, unaware of how our actions affect others.
- Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. It can help you become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations in the present moment.
- Writing down your thoughts and feelings can help you better understand them and reflect on your experiences.
- Talk with a coach, mentor, or therapist who can help you explore your thoughts (before choosing the professional to work with, think about your objectives and the kind of support you require).
Self-awareness rarely happens immediately. It takes time, commitment, and practice.
