How does journaling help with self-reflection?

Did you know that writing in a journal by hand can actually rewire your brain? 

Journaling is more than just putting your thoughts and emotions on paper. 

It can transform your inner awareness into actionable steps towards your goals.

But how does this happen? 

When you write in your journal, your brain goes through a complex process of composing and synthesizing ideas, words, and visualizations. 

This process signals to your brain that what you're doing is important, and it responds by coming up with solutions, ideas, options, and ways to achieve what you're focusing on during journaling.

As a result, your body prepares to act and make changes. 

The good news is that you don't need to spend hours journaling to experience these benefits. Even just 5-10 minutes a day can make a difference. 



Here is how to put this into practice…


All you will need to do is to ask yourself 3 Journal Prompts For Self-Reflection


But first I want to remind you something you already know …

Here is the secret.


The better you understand yourself, the better you can influence the world.

Reflecting in a journal will help you understand yourself better, learn from experience and positively impact how you serve others…


Step 1: ask yourself these 3 prompts, and write the answers in your journal.

  • How do you set boundaries and avoid absorbing someone else's emotions and stress?
  • How do you trust yourself to make big decisions?
  • How do you forgive yourself when you make a mistake?

Step 2: Challenge to repeat this process at least 3 days in a row for 5-10  minutes daily to make it a habit and think even more profoundly.

Step 3. On a blank page, write an action plan for what you will do differently after discovering new insights.


Try it out and let me know how it goes!
