Some of my readers asked me how to use journaling for self-reflection.
Reflecting in a journal can sound complicated.
But in reality, it is more easy than it sounds, and you can do it in 5 simple steps.
Here they are:
Step 1: Record what happened: describe a situation, event, relations, etc.
Step 2: Write what you felt about this, your thoughts and reactions
Step 3: Ask yourself “why” it happened a few times and write in a journal about it
Step 4: Write a takeaway and learn from your reflection
Step 5: Plan your action: what will you do differently armed with lessons learned?
