How Do You Renew?
In this world where we’re going a million miles an hour and we’re plugged in 24/7, how many of you find it difficult to really slow down and connect? Connect to the people you care about most? Connect to yourself and find a way to hear your own voice in the cacophony that is life? I would venture to guess that many of us have trouble with that these days. The thing is, it’s impossible to continue at that pace and still maintain a level of excellence. Something gives. Whether it’s our relationships, our health, our attitudes, or our effectiveness, we cannot bring our best if we haven’t recharged.
For me, there’s nothing more renewing than to spend time out in nature. I suspect growing-up in NW Montana has something to do with that. When I was growing up, our home was perched high on a hill, providing a vista where I could see for miles. There weren’t many other houses around, so everywhere I looked I just saw nature. With the pastures in the foreground and the mountains in the distance, I would sit there for hours and just…think and dream and..be.
So next week I’m off to some hidden cove in the middle of Maine to renew! To think and dream and be…
I’m giving myself one hour a day to plug back in (if you read my blog about “exceptions” you’ll understand why). But that’s it!
I’m exited about making the time for renewal – as I know I’ll be a better me on the other side.
I hope that you find a way to do the same, however you renew best. How do you renew?
