51 Questions For End Of Month Reflection

Tal, Teacher

Stop and think. 

When did you last take time to consider what drives you and how you can grow personally and professionally? 

How often do you find yourself doing the same things over and over expecting a different result?

Setting time aside at the end of each month to reflect on our feelings and behaviour is a powerful tool for driving change and effecting personal growth. 

Regular self reflection helps you:

  • Identify areas for change 
  • Develop new skills
  • Improve on what you’ve been doing
  • Increase your efficiency
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Understand our core values and work towards achieving them
  • Support making better decisions
  • Improve relationships

Whether you’re looking for personal reflection to aid professional development, or helping others reflect, asking the right questions is a good place to start.

We’ve collected 50 questions that can help you with your end of month reflection.
