Reviewing Your Life – Walking, Jogging, Praying, Blogging or Vlogging Reflection Takes Many Forms.
Reflection takes many forms. Some keep a journal, some pray, and others take a long walk or jog. Personally, I use daily meditation as my mindful habit. – Bill George
I pray, walk and meditate. I think that it would be good for me to keep a journal. So far this month I’ve been reading and posting about self awareness and I’ve came across many articles telling me to do so. Hey! It can’t hurt to try it out and do a weekly review of my life. I’ve also read that we can romantici…ze our memories or down play them. So a journal might keep me on track.
Vlogging in addition to Journaling could provide a different aspect to how you see yourself. When you record yourself you can see your mannerisms, pick up the different tones in your voice, hear your own accent.
Seeing yourself recorded is a lot different then talking to yourself while looking into a mirror. When I see myself in a mirror, I say wow that’s a nice color on you, did you clean your teeth good enough, is my hair nice enough to go outside?
I haven’t vlogged yet, but I’m already assuming that my thoughts will be just a bit more judgie. I also know that I should be greatful. Hey, maybe when I start journaling and or vlogging I’ll start with what I’m grateful for. Being grateful always cuts down the negative thinking.
Well, if you try any form of reflecting let me know by leaving a comment.
The quote from Bill George came from one of his articles. If you have time check it out. Also, I found a short video on How to Journal – A Journaling Technique for Personal Development.
