#WednesdayWisdom 🙏 We are social beings and need human connection. However, even at the best of times, this connection is damaged and distorted when we are not at peace with ourselves.
✌️ One of the best ways to secure this peace is through the development of what the Roman philosopher and statesman Seneca (c. 4 BC - AD 65) calls a “well-ordered mind”. This includes a clear conscience, alignment of values, thought and deed and self-control.
🧘🏽♀️ Today, this work is often referred to as #mindfulness or #meditation. It definitely involves #contemplation—something that those on #lockdown (not emergency workers) have unprecedented time for.
❤️ First, be good company to yourself—as we all know that loving others starts with loving yourself.
