5 Methods for Self-Discovery

There comes a time in everybody’s life when a person wants to learn more about themselves, and be more honest about who they are as a person. This can happen at any time, but is particularly prevalent in adult years. Whether it’s a young adult wanting to make sure the next steps count, a middle-aged adult who’s wondering about their own path in life, or even an older adult who is wanting to try those things they perhaps never did, many people will feel like this at some point.

Self-discovery is essential no matter your age, and being true to your own wants and needs is important for a positive life.

Here are some of the ways you can be true to yourself and learn more about yourself.


Keep a Journal
A lot of everyday life is spent thinking about what you should and shouldn’t say, and if you’re around different people, it may be that you’re unable to fully express yourself. Expressing yourself and being honest with yourself is essential for self-discovery, which means keeping a journal can be a valuable practice for organizing your own thoughts and seeing what you prioritize the most.

Daily gratitude journals can also be helpful tools for a relaxed and positive mind.

Take a Solo Trip
There’s nothing more valuable than taking a trip alone to discover more about yourself. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone in the realm of travel and having to spend this time in your own company and making your own decisions can allow you to learn new things about yourself and build confidence. Solo travel is a fantastic way to open your mind and put yourself in new surroundings, and you’ll feel more enlightened when you return.

Go Back to School
You know a lot more about yourself as an adult than you might have done as a student heading for university. This means that you may begin to wonder about a qualification you didn’t take (but might have wanted to), or perhaps your career goals or interests have changed dramatically. There’s nothing wrong with setting out a new education or career path for yourself. Furthermore, scholarships in Utah and tuition aid can mean that it’s easy to return to education as an adult if you’re looking to pursue a different qualification. CampusReel, for example, has a wealth of information on the best scholarships to apply for

Work for Yourself
If you’ve reached a point in your life and career where you no longer want to work in the same environment or answer to somebody else, then working for yourself can be a fundamental opportunity for developing your own skills and standing on your own two feet. Starting your own business venture can allow you to learn more about your own skills, the way you best work, and the hours of work you prefer.

Stop Worrying About What Other People Think
The moment you start saying ‘no’ to people without worrying whether you will upset them is the moment you learn more about yourself. Start by being honest about the social occasions you wish to attend and the times you want to turn down invitations and spend time alone.  Then try to stop worrying about what others will think about what you wear, say, and do. Doing so will allow you to embrace who you are and be honest about the way you wish to live your life - which will be very liberating.
