The Key To Connecting
Feeling connected is the key to fulfillment.
Whether it’s in your career, your relationship with yourself or others, when you feel connected, that’s also when you feel most fulfilled, meaningful, and inspired.
And likewise, when you feel disconnected from yourself, your partner, or the work you do, that is often when life feels most unfulfilling.
Feeling disconnected will not only lead to you feeling like you are on this journey alone; it also decreases your self-worth and confidence—two key ingredients to living an amazing life.
With that being said, I wanted to share something that my partner Mel and I have incorporated into our relationship that we started about three months ago.
This has been a game-changer for us and has helped us connect more with ourselves and each other.
Before we started doing this, we were having a hard time juggling both of our businesses and transitioning our work-life-balance. We found that although we spent time together, it wasn’t always quality time.
We made efforts to plan date nights, but we found that there was too much pressure to come up with a great idea that it took away from the point, which was to connect.
So to solve that problem, we created Connection Night.
The whole intention behind connect night is to connect. If it sounds simple, that’s because it is!
The simpler, the better!
Our intention is primarily to connect more and enjoy! The key is showing up and being present!
We have a non-negotiable date and time on the calendar, and during this time, there are no phones or electronics.
Sometimes we’ll explore new places, go for a hike, try something new, and sometimes we’ll just sit and chat.
The key with connection night is that it’s not meant to be big and elaborate. Remember, the simpler, the better!
This has been a game-changer for us and is now one of our favourite nights of the week!
If you are looking to elevate your connection with yourself or others, the best place to start is to consciously carve out time for it.
Make it a priority and treat it as such! There is so much power that comes from showing up and being present.
What is your favourite way to connect?
Lots of Love,
