Download: Getting To Know You Workbook


We’re making this helpful workbook available as a free .pdf download because as a pre-cursor to self-care, we need to understand who we are and what makes us tick.

If someone asked you to describe yourself in 5 words, would you find it easy?

How about if they asked you to name 5 things that make you happy, (or 5 things that don’t)?

…yeah, we might struggle with it too.

The thing is, it’s really difficult to create a life that you’re happy, or comfortable with, when you don’t know what makes you happy, or comfortable. Without a clear sense of who we are, we can find ourselves being moulded only by external influences: by other people, and by society’s expectations and pressures, being pulled this way and that, trying to satisfy pretty much everybody but ourselves. It’s easy to find yourself waking up one day and not really recognising the person in the mirror.

It’s never, ever, too late to start learning about ourselves though. This workbook will help you do exactly that. It’s crammed full of exercises that’ll allow you to get reacquainted with you. As you work through them, you’ll get clear on who you are: what your best bits and worst bits are; what you like and dislike; how you feel about certain things; what drains, energises and soothes you. All of the nitty-gritty bits that are the jigsaw puzzles pieces of you.
