Self-awareness includes:

Understanding our emotions—what we’re feeling and what triggered it—so we can effectively work through and transform our emotional responses (instead of using them to justify unhealthy choices).
Recognizing our destructive thought patterns so we can redirect them.
Tuning into what’s going on in our bodies so we can learn from it and access our intuition.
Noticing our behavioral patterns and habits so that we can make adjustments to change negative ones.
Understanding our beliefs, assumptions, and expectations, and how they influence what we choose to do.
Accepting that we are responsible for our actions—even if we developed certain patterns in response to events from our past.
