Motivation Monday: Reach Out Challenge
Each Monday, we're rolling out a new challenge to change the way you think, act, do, or feel. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be motivated to try something different for a week. And if you love it, keep it going!
Times change, people change. Chances are, whether you've stayed in the same city your whole life or are constantly hopping between provinces or countries, your nearest and dearest aren't all in the same place anymore. While it can be difficult to keep up with friends and family, there are some relationships worth fighting for.
This week, take the time to reach out to one person each day you care about that you maybe haven't touched base with lately. It can be as simple as sending them a text or an email, or something more involved - set up a video chat date, make plans to meet up, or even draft them a handwritten letter.
They'll definitely appreciate hearing from you, and it'll keep your friendship from flickering out. However you choose to contact someone, try to make the interaction personal. Don't just ask 'how are you?' Instead, ask about how their new job is going, or mention something you saw them post on social media.
This is one Motivation Monday challenge that's worth making a regular thing. If you conversation fizzles out after a bit, put a note in your calendar to touch base with that same friend a few weeks later.
