Recently I launched the SELF LOVE SUMMIT and it was in one attendee’s words, “Magical!”
Wow! That pretty much summed up the evening. Meaningful conversation, meeting new people, delicious food, and a powerful discussion around identifying the highlights from 2018 and creating more of those moments and feelings in 2019.
As we discussed as a group, one woman said a word that brought the room into silence, nodding agreement… ISOLATION.
She went on to share that so many of us are disconnected due to technology, busyness, and not choosing to be in the moment. This really resonated with the group and we launched into an even deeper discussion around disconnection with ourselves and others.
Does this resonate with you? If so, here are a few tips to feel more connected and less isolated in your life:
- Put the phone down… or better yet, in your purse: Technology has almost become like a blankie we need by our side, our pillows, and our dinner plates. In the morning, rather than checking in first thing on social media, instead, check in with yourself on how you want to feel that day. When at dinner, put it in your pocket or purse. If you’re worried about emergencies, there’s an option you can assign to certain contacts that will bypass the silence button on your phone.
- Strength Train Your Mind: Practice being present with others and with yourself. Whether you are washing the dishes or having coffee with a friend, when your mind wanders, call it back to whatever or whoever is in front of you by saying “I pay attention on purpose… I pay attention on purpose….”
- Create Your Own Self Love Summit (or whatever you want to call it!): Feeling lack of connection in your life? Then create a group… a book club, wine tasting club, or simply follow the topics I use each month with my summit. You will be amazed at the response and how good you feel afterwards. There is such strength in community.
If you’d like to hear more about the exercise we went through at January’s summit click here to join my free Facebook community and watch the video I did yesterday. The group is called “Get Your Mojo Back!” and it’s full of tips and tools to increase prosperity in all areas of your life.
P.S. If you can’t make the next Self Love Summit February 5th be sure to watch for the fun exercise I’ll be posting on the “Get Your Mojo Back” group (click here) after the summit. It’s a powerful exercise around the topic of “Cleaning The Slate: How Physical & Emotional Clutter Can Hold You Back.”
See you soon,
