Improving Your Wellbeing through Self-Connection

On a scale of 1-10, where’s your self-connection? Or, put another way, where would you rate your awareness and acceptance of yourself?

I ask because self-connection is a key to wellness.

But often we feel disconnected from ourselves and this disconnection can perpetuate feelings of insecurity and self-doubt, increasing anxiety, self-criticism, and negative self-talk.

On the other hand, when we’re feeling self-connected, our sense of self-worth, self-confidence, self-compassion and creativity increase. With self-connection we actively acknowledge our thoughts, feelings/emotions and become true to ourselves and our values.It is important to know that disconnection is a normal part of the human experience and self-connection ebbs and flows. 

If you want to deepen your connection with yourself, here are 4 tips:

1. Begin your day by asking, “What do I need?”

Place a hand on your heart, be present with yourself, breathe, and ask, “What do I need?” 

2. Use your breath 

Notice your breath and watch how your breath pattern changes when you are in different emotional states. 

3. Movement

When you’re moving your body in ways you enjoy, you’re in the present, connecting with yourself and processing emotional energy.

4. Write thought downloads

Through this writing exercise you become more connected and aware of your thoughts and feelings by doing a “brain dump.” All you need is paper, a pen and 10 minutes to allow yourself to pour out all your thoughts, worries, hopes, and dreams. 

Self-connection is an ongoing process. It starts with you choosing to build a healthy, authentic inward relationship with yourself. 

If you’re looking for personalized support and guidance with your nutrition, lifestyle and cultivating a deeper self-connection, let’s work together. 

Love, Your Wellness Coach,
