One of my favorite tools as a coach is Self-reflecting, it gives you so much perspective. Self-reflection is a process in which you look "inside" yourself to examine your thoughts, feelings, experiences, and actions. Reflecting supports us in gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves and our lives. Self-reflection can be done in various ways, including journaling, meditation, or simply taking quiet moments to think and assess.
