Find an appropriate place
First, try to find a place where you are alone and can think about your life in silence and solitude. You will have to be as far away from distractions as possible. In case you can’t find a place at home, or even in a nearby park, you can always opt for a place far away from your home. A beach is always a good option. In case you can find a quiet park, you can always visit it often and give your mind some time to relax and think about yourself.
Let the thoughts float in
Once you have found a place to relax your mind, it is time for you to let your thoughts float in. Think about each and everything you have gone through in the recent past. Go through the positive thoughts, and the negative thoughts. Think about what you have done, the good decisions you have taken and what they have resulted in; and the poor decisions that you have taken and how they have not paid off at the end. This will help you take better decisions in the future and you will understand the adjustments that you need to make in your lifestyle in order to change it to your benefit.
Another way to start reflecting on your life is to use the mirror technique. You can always look at yourself in the mirror and talk about everything. The mirror always helps you talk to your true self.
Let yourself out, open up and shout out each and everything that you have felt in the past. Speak about the experiences and how they made you feel. Once you talk to yourself, you will start to realize the mistakes that you have made, and you will also be able to pinpoint the positives from each and every situation you have been a part of.
