5 Different Types of Journaling to Explore Your Sense of Self: 

Your sense of self refers to your perception of the collection of characteristics that define you as a person. Your personality traits, abilities, likes and dislikes, belief systems, moral code and the things that motivate you all contribute to what makes your unique identity as a person. Exploring your sense of self through journaling, can help you to identify your self-image and learn more about what makes you tick!

Track your fertility or menstrual cycle, your mood, movements, tiredness/energy levels, sleeping habits and other feelings in your body to become more aware of your body and how it feels.
