Humans desire interaction and connection. Some may like interactions more than others but we can agree we all desire connection in some form or another. Connection is not just about engaging with others. It’s also about connecting with ourselves. If we don’t know who we are, where we want to go, or understand what’s going on within our internal dialogue, how can we truly relate to someone else. How can you be present and listen when there’s 900 things meandering in your mind?
In our society, it’s common to disconnect and numb ourselves (can you relate):
-endless hours on the internet
-playing games on your phone
-doing something else while talking on the phone
-spend hours on social media
-eat too much
-drink too much (or dampen our senses with stronger substances)
Instead try this:
-call someone you’ve been thinking about
-engage in meaningful conversation (instead of how are you? Ask, what’s been the best part of your day?)
-do something that brings you joy
-do something with someone else that brings them joy
-send a thank you note to a friend, family member or colleague
-do something that get you excited
-do something that relaxes you
Instead of disconnecting, let’s truly connect to ourselves and with others. Take a minute today and let someone you know you care or what they mean to you.
