Connecting with yourself means connecting with your emotions. This is what introspection is all about: turning inward and observing what’s going on inside yourself without judgment.
The relationship you have with yourself is the most important relationship you’ll ever have, and emotional health lies at the heart of this relationship. Emotional exploration isn’t easy, but it can form the foundation for a self-relationship that will support you in all other areas of whole-person health. Approaching your emotions with acceptance and compassion, checking in with them regularly, and creating space for emotional rest are core components of having a healthy relationship with yourself.
