Self-care homework for today, you ready? Write (draw, doodle, email yourself) the last 5 times you felt alive. Take a few minutes to reflect on your life and focus in on the times when you felt more like "you." Being alive is that moment when you feel deep inside, "Yes, this is what I was created to do!" Once you write them down zoom out and see if there are any themes or connection points.
For example, some possible connection points or themes might be...
- A certain person that helps you remember who you are
- Being in nature
- Doing a certain task in your job
- Trying something new
There are all kinds of themes that might emerge. And if you do not find any, no worries. It is still a good practice to notice what makes you feel connected and alive. Because it's a good practice to try to return to those regularly through the week.
If you are struggling to remember a time when you felt fully alive and more connected to your true self, then that's okay. If you are in Nashville and want to talk about this, then schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation.
