Daily Practice: Self – Discovery

This past month we took a journey of self – discovery. In order to succeed, you need to know yourself, be a few steps in front of your fears and self- doubt and take massive action. If you followed along so far, I can’t wait to dive into the next few themes of the month for continued self-exploration.

In case you missed it, here are the posts from the last month, here, here, here & here.

In the last post of each month, I will share daily practices of the month’s theme and some resources I read and listened to help stay focus on the month.

What can you do today & every day for more for self- exploration?

Change your environment from time to time – To all my introvert’s out there, being home all weekend isn’t helpful. You never know what you will experience and be inspired by.

Try a new hobby  Has there been anything you’ve been wanting to try? Listen to your body’s cue and see where it takes you.

Meditation  Guys I was pretty resistant to this step for a long time. I’ve just tried this and it was pretty powerful. Need some clarity? been overthinking too much? Meditation might be a fit for you. A lot of people really don’t understand meditation and think, I just can’t sit there in silence. It’s more than just sitting there. Meditation helps you with your awareness of your thoughts (the ones that keep coming up) and help you clear your mind from your mind clutter. Helps you to self-soothe.

Journaling Create a daily journaling routine. Here are some examples of the type journals you can create:

  • Daily Reflections: Jot down how you want your day to go. How you want to feel. How you anticipate certain interactions that you know will come up throughout the day. At the end of the day, reflect on your day and how things could have gone better or celebrated wins throughout the day.
  • Wins: Create a journal noting all your little wins throughout the day. Reflect on the wins daily and see how you have grown.
  • Visualization: If you could describe an ideal self in the future, the person you are trying to become, how would you describe that self? How would you feel? I am currently reading High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard, and in the book Brendon mentions:

     “Trying to imagine ourselves in the future with great clarity is hard work for anyone. That’s why most people tend to do it only once a year… new year’s eve. But high performers spend a lot of time thinking about their best self and the ideal they’re trying to grow into.”

Write daily prompts on who you want to become, this allows you to visualize your goal but provide you clarity on yourself and your future.

Things I loved this past month:

    I take time every night before bed to write in my journal and reflect on my day and feelings. It feels really good afterwards, especially if I had a hard day that day.

      Love that Dara, that is something that I struggle with. My coach recommends it all the time to journal and so does Brendon Burchard from High-Performance Habits… looks like your on the right track!

    As an introvert, I can definitely attest to the point about getting out of the house opening up new relationships and doors for me! Love your book recommendations… if you haven’t already I totally recommend reading The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. SO. GOOD.

      Is it weird that my perfect day is it’s raining outside, watching the office for the millionth time and working on my laptop?? I feel you. My home is my sanctuary. Thanks for the book recommendation… audible has been my obsession!

    Yay, for the Happiness Project! I actually don’t have a daily practice, but I definitely should. Great tips!

      Surprised that I liked the book, I actually want to reread it. Hope some of these inspired you.

    Meditation and journaling are my faves for self discovery. Both are very calming and beneficial to me.
