Self exploration strategies to Try

  • pen your memoir.
  • Compose a letter for a time capsule.
  • Write your own obituary.
  • Create a family tree (or genogram, “a family tree with all the psychological details”).
  • Make a timeline of your life.
  • “Reflect on [your] best and worst day.”
  • Record your dreams.
  • Ask yourself, What would I do if I had three wishes?
  • Ask yourself, “Why?” whether it’s about your hobbies, likes, dislikes or your emotions and experiences. According to Howes, a few examples: “Why do I love baseball?” “Why do I dress this way?” or “Why don’t I cry very often?” “You might be surprised at your own answers,” he said.
  • Enlist help. “Sometimes the guidance of a friend, mentor, spiritual advisor or therapist” can help.
