377: Using self-reflection to learn and grow

In this Get Merry podcast episode, we delve into this month’s MerryBody theme which is, self-reflection. 

“People who have had little self-reflection live life in a huge reality blind-spot.” — Bryant McGill

This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • Self-reflection is a way to understand ourselves, how we interact with the life around us, and how we learn to do better.
  • Self-reflection is a place where judgment should not exist. Rather than judgment, go in with acceptance front of mind.
  • There are certain Yoga poses inside the MerryBody App, such as forward folds, that really invite self-reflection and going inwards. You’re gazing inward on yourself, you’re forward folding toward yourself and getting to know you.
  • Where is the time for self-reflection and how do we make time for this? We listened to the Founders podcast episode about Brunello Cucinelli and how he would spend hours and hours in contemplation.
  • Practising Yoga is a method to go inwards and can help you realise your morals and ethics.
  • Self-reflection helps us understand perception vs. reality. This realisation helps you let go of your righteousness.
  • How do we actually practice self-reflection? Yoga is a great practice, especially yin yoga. Write, journal, walk in nature. Sit by yourself and welcome in your thoughts. 
  • If you haven’t done a Yin Yoga class, check out one of our classes on YouTube. It’s called Love Your Liver Yin Yoga.

Self-reflection helps us to learn from the past and live better in the present.
