Why self reflection is important

One fact that many people may not know about self-reflection is that it has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. Studies have found that regular self-reflection can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and improve overall well-being. Additionally, self-reflection has been linked to better emotional regulation, which can help individuals respond more effectively to difficult situations.

What is Self-Reflection

Self-reflection can be thought of like cleaning the mirrors in your home. Just as you clean the mirrors so you can see your reflection clearly and make sure you are looking your best, self-reflection allows you to take a closer look at yourself - your thoughts, feelings, and actions - so you can understand yourself better and make any necessary changes to improve yourself.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
