Reflective Journaling Session: Set aside at least 30 minutes for an uninterrupted journaling session. Reflect on the following prompts:

  • How have my understanding and management of emotions like anger, fear, and resentment evolved?
  • In what ways have practices of mindfulness, compassion, and letting go of control impacted my emotional well-being?
  • Can I identify moments where my ego influenced my emotional reactions? How did I address these situations?

Gratitude Reflection: End your journaling session by listing three specific aspects of your emotional growth journey you're grateful for. Gratitude enhances positive emotions and helps in shifting our focus from the ego's negativity bias.
