A few years ago, I was introduced to the book “Tribes” by Seth Godin. The book is all about people’s tendencies to want to belong to groups, whether they be religious, cultural, or hobby-related. Lot’s of people get stuck in the same “tribes” for years, even after they have long outgrown the people within them and do not share the same ideals and aspirations anymore. This weekend’s #selfcarefeb challenge is to expand your current tribe (or create a new one!) by connecting with like-minded people. We already had a lesson on connecting with friends that you haven’t spoken to in a while, but today is all about forming some new connections.
- Comment in the comments section of five blogs that you enjoy reading. You’ll connect with like minds and also discover links to other blogs that contain similar content.
- Not finding what you want to read online? Start your own blog! Use unique tags and categories to make your posts easier to find.
Saturday: Social Media
- Follow, like and comment on posts, videos, and pictures that resonate with you.
- Share something that you typically don’t share with others. Do you have some creative writing or a poem to share? How about a video of an epic hike that you just took? Share it and connect with others who enjoy similar activities.
- Discover some new activities in your town that you could try to meet people similar to you.
- Sign-Up to volunteer. Try a one-time activity, or sign-up for for something long-term.
- Research courses available through adult continuing education or your local community college. They are a lot of fun and you’ll learn new skills while meeting new people.
Comment Below: Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you felt that you outgrew your “tribe?” How did you overcome this?
