18 Questions For Checking In With Yourself
Being self-aware is extremely beneficial, and allows you to have a deeper understanding of your emotions, actions, and why you do what you do.
As you become more self-aware, you will learn about your strengths and weaknesses, and in learning those, you can strive to change as needed. Self reflection has been found to enhance focus, decrease stress, and even improve emotional and physical health!
