A couple weeks ago, I blogged about how a little self-awareness goes a long way. Since I am always striving for more self-awareness and work to get there with some well-time journal prompts, I thought I’d share a few that my students and I will tackle during the first week of classes this fall.
What do you most appreciate about yourself? About what are you most confident?
How do you care for yourself each day?
How do you show yourself a lack of concern on a regular basis?
What is your vision for yourself and how is that different from who you are today?
When I think about these questions, I consider my passion and compassion. I think about the way I take time to read and my desire to fuel my body with healthy food. I think about how I don’t get enough sleep. And how I sometimes overengage in things I shouldn’t. I consider how going vegetarian has made me pause long enough each night to provide a homemade meal– something I always wanted to do but was too focused on other things to do regularly before going vegetarian.
What comes to mind when you think of these questions?
