Socrates knew a great deal of things and he wasn’t wrong when he stated that us humans need to get to ‘know thyself’. Connecting with ourselves first and foremost is crucial for mental wellbeing, as well as connecting with the people around us.

Many people are completely disconnected from their self, and instead caught up in endless patterns of striving and seeking external pleasures to pacify them. Many people are constantly too busy, unhappy and punishing themselves on a path that they have unconsciously but willingly chosen, when really their true selves are yearning for something entirely different, even if it is just balance. But where do we start when we get to adulthood and are composed of layers of fears, unhelpful thinking and other people’s expectations? Who can we turn to in our professions to facilitate this connection? And what can we start doing today to move onto this pathway? Our relationship with ourselves is the foundation that everything else in our lives rests on. There’s a good chance that if you start connecting with yourself and those around you more often, you will be quite happy with what you discover.
