One of the trickiest tasks we ever face is that of working out who we really are. If someone asks us to describe ourselves, our minds tend to go blank. We can’t just sum ourselves up. We need prompts and suggestions and more detailed enquiries that help tease out and organise our picture of ourselves.
The ‘Who am I?’ mindfulness journal (£15) is designed to help us create a psychological portrait of who we are with the use of some unusual, oblique, entertaining and playful prompts. The book is filled with exercises to help us develop our self-understanding within key areas of our lives, including work, sex, compassion and relationships.
Reduce stress and anxiety with the End of Day Wellness Journal from echor (£19.99). This semi-guided notebook explains the benefits of some powerful psychological mindfulness exercises. This includes gratitude, affirmations and reflections. Throughout the journal, you’ll find handy prompts reminding you to consider each one in your day-to-day life.
