Welcome to the CONNECT series. Over the next few weeks, I will share simple tips for connecting more deeply with yourself. After all, if you don’t know yourself...who does?
When I was teaching full-time, raising my son, getting my masters, volunteering and basically running myself ragged, I would have laughed in your face if you told me I should CONNECT with myself. Seriously? Who has time for THAT?? Who even cares??
Part of the reason I was frustrated, overwhelmed, bored and stuck was because I had no real direction. No clarity. I had no daily routine other than cursing my alarm clock and falling into bed each night exhausted.
That changed significantly when I began the simple, daily routine of sitting on my patio without technology, for 10-15 minutes, at least once per day. If it was morning, I drank my coffee. If it was evening, I might have wine. As an introvert, I craved this alone time, but rather than fill it with social media rabbit holes or checking off a to-do list, I used the time to think, plan, imagine, listen and learn.
Making time to connect with yourself is worthwhile. It’s not selfish. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
