We all have a busy life, there is so much on our plate these days, we are consumed with work almost all the time. And at some point, all of it starts to exhaust us, the tasks become difficult to carry out and slowly we start feeling detached from work, from people, from reality and from life in general.
And that is where the need for reflection arises. Take out time to understand your own thoughts and feelings. Try to figure out why you have chosen a certain path, your career or the course that you are taking. Find out why it is important to you, what to do you wish to gain from it, where you plan to reach. Find out the little details about yourself, your likes and dislikes, about your work, and everything else that is present in your life.
This will help you have a purpose in life, it will give your life a meaning. It will help you decide what you really want in life. You will regain the energy to take on certain tasks. You will have direction in life, and it will help you plan your future.
So, once in a while slow down a little, detach yourself from the bothers of life and use this time to reflect.
