Every working day we push ourselves to get more completed and to do more. We continually are working on the big picture or the next great thing. We over work and are constantly thinking about work, however there comes a time to stop and live in the moment.
Spend time with your spouse/partner, family, and friends and really give them your full attention without focusing and thinking about work. Spending quality time with others keep us balanced, grateful, happy and feeling loved.
Usually the reason we work so hard is for our family, but they need to have our loving attention as well. It could be showing up to your children’s ball game. A date night with your spouse. Taking your parents out to lunch or shopping. Sending a text to a friend, “let’s get together for coffee”. Make it a point to do the little things to keep your relationships alive.
Life is more than work, it is about living a purposeful meaningful life. Put time and effort into your relationships, just like you do with work. You will feel happier and less overwhelmed. Life is to be expressed, celebrated and fun. Isn’t it time to have some summertime inspiration and go on a adventure with someone special?
What are some strategies you can do this summer to improve your relationships?
Please share this post with your colleagues, friends, family and on your social networks for others to get inspired!
