Here are few activities which may lead you to self-discovery and know yourself better. The initial step will always be difficult but once you start moving, the momentum will take you forward; and in future, you will cherish this new beginning.
Record your life journey:
List down your thoughts, ideas, experiences, beliefs and feelings in a place. It may be in a diary or in your computer; but make sure only you access it. It’s like documenting and summarizing yourself over a period of time. You may not have to do it everyday. Just do whenever you feel like writing; let it eventually grow on time. But do write it sincerely. Going through the document will make you understand the new realizations in your life.
Analyze the people around you:
There may be umpteen numbers of people in your life but you would like to keep only few of them closer. Find out a reason as to why you like being with them. What influence do they make in your life and how they lead you in your journey. This will help you to understand what kind of a social person you are.
Pursue new hobbies:
You can discover new interests & talents and divert yourself from doing routine activities. Find your new passion and get insights on yourself.
Study your state of mind:
Are you uber cool by nature, usually happy or sad and grouchy, often stressed or just go with the flow? What would be the reason behind the mood? Can it be pursued everyday or avoided?
Bring new people on board:
Take a leap to find new people in your life. They may bring fresh perspective and experience. Look for positive, like-minded people who will support and inspire you. Who knows, you may lease a new life with that person.
Find what pleases you the most:
Eating? a sip of a coffee? a serene walk? or an easy talk? Find out what pleases you the most so that when you are depressed or feel bad, you can do these activities to move on.
Evaluate your goals:
Consider the cause behind the current goal in your life. What is the fundamental motivation behind it and what would be your state-of-mind if you travel in other direction from your goal? If you find hard to uncover the motivation, re-evaluating the goal will help you to proceed in a right direction.
These are only few activities; a tip of an iceberg in the ocean of self-discovery. Some may work for few people and some may not, after all that’s what makes us unique from everyone else. Should you have more ideas on this? Please do share in the comment section :-)
