Renewing our relationships

October 25, 2018

When we feel connected to other people, we become more resilient, energized and creative. As we increasingly learn that climate change is undermining our mental health, it is even more important to take care of each other.

 

Buddy up!

Go schedule something fun with someone you enjoy.  Set a date for that monthly breakfast with colleagues. Stick to your intention of traveling to see your school friends once a year. Building these activities into our calendars help us renew ourselves and our relationships regularly.

Reach out

Need a second opinion on how you want to tackle a problem? Want to get some exercise? Excited to try a new restaurant? Ask someone you haven't seen or talked to in a while to go with you. Sure, we are all busy and schedules might not line up but the simple act of asking them will let them feel connected and appreciated, and you may be surprised by who says yes.   


Share more

Along with building up our relationships, we all can benefit from generating and sharing more joy and positive energy. So when you think of something nice about someone else, share it with them! It doesn’t have to be something big or bold, but feel free to let your creativity run wild. Send over an insightful article, deliver a compliment, or just say hi when someone comes to mind. You'll get joy from the sharing and give joy to the receiver. What more can you ask for?

 

Befriend yourself

Sometimes the friend you need to connect with is yourself. It sounds a little weird but self-care is radically important to living healthy and connected lives. Give yourself the gift of an afternoon off or some time in your favorite place. The more content and peaceful you are, the more you bring that to all your relationships and the better they become.  

 

 

One of the best parts of our work is the connections we make. From customers to partners to investors, The Renewal Workshop is a business of connection. We bridge gaps and close loops and connect systems so we can all work together to do right by people and the planet. Thanks for being in this relationship with us.
