Diary about the Self

Activity Description:


To explore your definition of self


  1. For 30 days, keep a journal that focuses on “who you are.”
  2. Each day, prepare a journal entry. For 15 – 20 minutes, describe some experiences that occurred that day and consider their impact on your self-definition.
  3. At the end of the month, summarize your conclusions. Consider how your journal entries pertain (or could pertain) to work-family issues. Relate the content of your journal to identity theory.
