Do you take time of your day, week. month for self reflection? It's such a good way to check up on yourself, realize if you should make any changes, remind yourself what you love about yourself, it helps you re-think your goals and set new ones. Journaling is like therapy - you learn so much about yourself.

When self-reflecting you look at yourself from a distance in a non-judgmental way, you're being completely honest with yourself and focus your attention on what’s happening in your life and how you’re feeling. You think about it, write about it,  process it and learn from it.
It's best if you can take time to journal each morning and evening, however if you feel like that's too much, do it weekly, or at least monthly, take your time - it will definitely be worth it.

Some people find writing easy, so they just go with the flow and write whatever comes to mind, while others like to have a question list and answer them daily.
Today I compiled a list of journaling prompts for self reflection, if you prefer to have some questions while journaling use these ideas for inspiration:
