Listen to Yourself and Learn What You Truly Need Today and Every Day

Take a break infographic

Listen and learn…

When you listen you learn. And when you listen to yourself, you may be especially surprised at what you learn.

Yet, finding time to really listen to yourself seems a challenge that defeats many of us.

It’s so important, and it sounds so easy. But more often than not, it seems to be the last thing that we get to. Or it’s the first thing we let go of when we get busy

Can you relate?

The best-laid plans…

Picture your day unfolding.  You have priorities and a plan, and everything is going along right on schedule.  Then something unexpected happens and you need to re-prioritize.

What’s the most likely thing to get jettisoned?  I’m guessing that it will be that half hour you had planned for meditation or journaling or for a quiet walk.  Too often, the time slots we reserve for self-care or reflection or for simply checking in with ourselves don’t carry as much weight as other priorities. But you can help yourself with this. And it’s important that you do.

It’s your job to listen…

We tend to not see these things as our responsibility or as key ingredients in our life’s work, but they actually are.

In fact, I would argue that these opportunities to LISTEN to ourselves are precisely what allow us to carry on our life’s work in the most meaningful, Heart-Based and Spirit-Driven way possible.  Listening keeps you connected with YOU and with the deep and personal wisdom that you carry inside.

Here’s another scenario.

Again, imagine that your day is buzzing along and you are accomplishing things left and right.  Gradually, though, something starts feeling “off” to you.  You are cranky, depleted, and can’t wait for the day to just be over.

What do you do?

I’m guessing that many or most of us just plow through with whatever is on our To-Do lists.

But what if you stopped right then and took some time to LISTEN to yourself?

Compassion and Curiosity Help

When you greet these unexpected and unplanned moments with compassion and curiosity, they can provide openings for deeper self-knowledge.  That’s because whatever is pulling at you ALWAYS has something interesting and important to say.

It’s all in how you approach this inner voice.  If you are annoyed and impatient, then, like anyone would, your inner voice is likely to clam up.  But when you are interested and allow it space, you’ll be amazed at what you learn.
