Hello SOTGC community,
Are you lonely?
If you’re like most people, you probably never think too much about it.
It’s certainly something no one ever talks about.
But take a quick look at your life. I bet you’ve been so busy either building your career or growing your business to even notice that you’ve went literally days without really having a conversation or interacting with anyone … other than to say a quick hello.
Did you know that we, as humans, are hardwired to interact and connect? It’s how we build our communities.
So if you’re sitting in your home office behind the computer for weeks on end, or eating lunch in your cubicle while you work … day after day … you can soon feel the effects of loneliness and may not even know it.
Loneliness is an emotion. Just like happiness is an emotion. So think about how you feel when you’re full of happiness. You feel energized and excited. Loneliness can leave you feeling run down, tired, and like something is just missing from your life.
As important as it is to make an impact on the world through your business or career, it’s equally important not to forget about you, and that you need the connection of your community to lift you up emotionally and spiritually.
Here are three ways to transform your loneliness.
1. Let’s Have Lunch
I know you may not have time for lunch every day, but plan a weekly or monthly lunch date with one of your co-workers or connect with someone new at the office. If you work from home … join a local networking group that holds monthly meetings. It’s also a great way to meet other entrepreneurs. Just getting “out of the office” will leave you feeling refreshed.
2. Don’t Forget the Ones You Love
It can be easy to watch another week fly by on the calendar without so much as a phone call to your best friend or an evening out with your loved ones, but it’s important to stay connected to the ones you love. After all, these are the people who are there for you when the going gets tough.
3. Those in Need … Need You Too!
For those of you who live far away from friends and family … volunteer. Making life a little easier for someone else not only helps them, but also helps you.
I know some of my suggestions might involve stepping out of your comfort zone, but sometimes that’s what it takes to move you out of your routine and to make some positive changes.
This week … plan your first lunch!
To your success!
Tip of the week …
Never apologize for who you are!
