Self-reflection relies on taking time to look inward—to turn over experiences in an effort to understand our own emotion, how we are in relationship to ourselves and others, and how we occupy space in this life—and it can take on many forms. Self-reflection practices are the methods we can use to promote self-exploration and analysis, and it is the crucial first step in almost all personal growth.
