Alignment is a word that’s become part of my vocabulary recently. Thanks to some ergonomic issues in my office, I’ve been forced to focus on alignment and the body. It’s not just our physical body that requires alignment in our workplace. Our mind and spirit also benefit from alignment in our work. The definition of alignment is “the proper positioning or state of adjustment of parts in relation to each other.”
When our God-given identity is not reflected in our work, we are out of alignment. We struggle to stay motivated, to find meaning in the work we are doing on a daily basis. We’re mentally, emotionally and spiritually all hunched over, in a defensive position. We feel frustrated and stuck. We don’t have proper positioning. Our parts are not in a state of adjustment in relation to each other.
