On the first Wednesday of each month we have a post with the month’s theme. The month theme is something to think about, journal about, include in your daily intentions, and/or be mindful of all month. It’s also a good topic for folks doing our Page Per Day Challenge.
This month’s theme is communication. These days there are so many ways to communicate via texting or on social media, we tend to feel shallowly connected to a lot of people but deeply connected to few.
This month, focus on how you can meaningfully communicate with the people around you. Make a point to talk to people face to face. If face to face interaction isn’t possible, call someone on the phone instead of texting. This is a shift from what everyone is used to these days, so it might be hard at first. Set yourself a challenge to speak face to face and/ or over the phone with a certain number of people each week.
In addition to communicating directly with people, be intentional about your message. Remember, the point of communication is to make yourself understood to the other person, and for you to understand them. Are you communicating clearly? Are you listening thoroughly and really trying to understand the other person’s message?
Improving your communication will strengthen your relationships, and make you feel more connected to the people in your life.
The Month Theme comes out on the first Wednesday of each month. You can see all the month themes here.
