Even Introverts Need Connection

IMG-1628

Even an introvert like me needs connection.

During what has proven to be a very stressful time, with everything that’s currently going on in the world related to the pandemic, I’ve done everything I can to practice self care.

Today I connected with nature, and back to myself. It was a good feeling, since I’ve felt a bit lost and disconnected lately. Getting outside in nature is one of my favorite places to practice self care. I listened to the birds chirping – I saw flowers blooming and a budding branch canopy above me – I smelled the damp earth beneath my feet – I leaned into a tree and hugged it long and hard, getting as close as I could, and thoroughly enjoying the connection – I laid on the grass, looking up at the branches swaying in the breeze, and watched the clouds as they rolled by… effectively grounded myself.

To all you extroverts out there, I can only imagine how you’re feeling. Hang in there! I hear more businesses will be safely opening very soon. Providing you the opportunity to get out and connect with others in person while establishing new social distancing procedures after staying-at-home.

I encourage you to do everything you can to practice self care on a regular basis – it’s more important than ever! Get outside in nature, meditate, breathe deeply, practice yoga, watch a funny movie, read a good book, cook a healthy meal. Find enjoyable activities that relax you and create new routines that promote a self care lifestyle. One you can sustain when things go back to normal. Although, I’m thinking that going back to normal will be a process of creating a new normal. I recommend looking at this time as a chance to create a new, and perhaps better, foundation that puts self care first.

When we think of self care, we need to think of ourselves first. This is not selfish; it is necessary and it is our responsibility to build a firm foundation in which to live, interact and work. Being our best for ourselves has to be first so we can then be our best for our family, friends, community and world.

My goal in sharing is always to support and encourage others. If you found this blog helpful, please share. Let’s focus on doing what we can to support each other during a challenging time.

Until next time, Laura Li Lifestyle
