Spending time reflecting can help you make positive change

Updated: Sep 11, 2019

Processing helps us learn and when we learn, we understand. We are then more likely to create change or take action. The importance of processing (I like to say ‘thinking) is often underestimated or not even considered. It isn’t tangible so we don’t see it as being ‘productive’. We have lived 000’s of days. They happen, they pass and they’re not given a second thought.

We all ‘go through the motions’ (which is possibly the saddest saying ever). There are so many days that we don’t, and will never, remember because we didn’t stop to take note of them. You may remember the odd one - because something major happened, an anniversary, something significant (whatever that may be for you). These are important, but what about all the others? All of the smaller stuff that happened, that we witnessed, that we heard, saw, felt, took in.

New scenarios, situations, experiences happen all the time. We learn something every single day but not if we don’t take the time to stop and think about what happened that day. Stop to process, to record, to think – the days simply pass us by. If you spend more time thinking and reflecting on your day and what that means in your reality, you will learn, and you will understand. This is where you take control. You create change.
