We are so much more than just our bodies, our brains, our fingers and toes. We are spiritual beings living in a physical vessel that needs maintenance and the occasional tune up. We wouldn’t think of driving our car without ever changing the oil. We can’t drive it anywhere without the proper gas in our tanks. So why don’t we feel the same way about our bodies? Our mind and our spirit is contained within this amazing vessel we travel around in. Yet we seem to ignore what it has to say to us. It’s constantly communicating with us, everyday, every minute, every second.
Spend more quality time with yourself. A lot of people are quite uncomfortable by themselves. They always need company and when they are alone they try to avoid themselves by getting occupied doing something else. Quality time alone means shifting your attitude from ‘not being around anyone’ to ‘being with myself’. Take time to listen to yourself, observe and write down your thoughts, feelings and ideas.
Disconnect your devices and connect with yourself again. We are getting so connected to things and systems that we are gradually disconnecting from ourselves. Internet, personal mobile devices, PCs, TV, phones, whatever, have not only consumed our free time but have consumed the relationship with ourselves. Sitting in a waiting room anywhere, you always see people who haven’t raised their eyes once from their mobile phones in one hour – texting, playing, etc. Put down your phones or whatever and absorb your environment, think, imagine, create in your head.
