Just stopping to talk sometimes helps

Connection

There are days when you feel like a hamster on a wheel, spinning and going nowhere. Wandering in the house from room to room forgetting your intention, which becomes clear when you return to where you started. By the end of the day all the back and forth can leave you feeling both exhausted and unproductive. Providing service to a loved one can also leave a feeling of anxiety and insecurity. How do yo have fewer struggles and  find ease?

  1. Explore where you are.
  2. Ask yourself where you want to be.
  3. Find a goal that is uplifting and feels good.
  4. Seek understanding and compassion.
  5. Reconnect with yourself and loved one through meditation or prayer

What matters most? Being connected!
