What is reflection?
Reflection means to process our thoughts and feelings; it is useful in stressful or upsetting situations. It allows us to look at things in different ways and to understand why we may be thinking a certain way, it can promote understanding for us, making things easier to accept and understand.
Reflecting on things allows us to explore areas of weakness and strengths we may have. Sometimes when we are telling someone something we end up telling them everything, this pulls us away from reflecting and leans more to us describing a situation.
One of the good things about reflecting is it helps us to do things differently going forward, it may prevent us from making the same mistakes again or it can remind us of the details of special events which help us to create important memories.
