Personal Retreat


Sourced from~Renee Trudeau

The main purpose of self-care is so we can hear and see what we most need to know about our next steps.

  • spend this time reflecting on what in your life is calling for your attention; think about how you want to allocate your precious time, energy and resources over the next 90 days.

  • A good place to start is by making a list of what activities in your life currently fuel you (which ones give you energy, nurture you, make you come alive) and what activities drain you (create a physical tightness or discomfort in your back, belly or neck every time they cross your consciousness). Often these drains are things like a financial issue that must be handled, a tough conversation that has been postponed, a disorganized space at work or home, or a timely career issue that needs to be addressed.

Plan a Solo Retreat DAY

"Design a day that inspires you and helps you gain clarity and focus, but trust your intuition; this isn’t a race and you won’t be graded! A primary goal of this retreat is to give your analytical thinking a rest and give your creativity and your “Wise Self” the opportunity to speak."

Here are some tips to help you get the most from your retreat:

Set aside a day or a weekend void of all distractions (a minimum of eight hours is ideal, but even four hours is great).

Quickie” journaling. How do I feel? What do I need? What do I Want?•Choose a location that is inspiring and conducive to contemplation—a quiet park or natural setting; a friend’s vacant house; a coffee shop.... but get out of your own house!

Unplug, reflect and ditch your agenda. Dream and be open to new possibilities and new ways of being. Ask with compassion and kindness, “What would be the best use of my energy and focus in the next 90 (or even 30) days?

Get the time on your calendar NOW! Otherwise it won’t happen. Think this sounds impossible? Well, if not now, then when?
