FACT: Relationships with people are complicated.
Whether the relationship is romantic, platonic or professional, interacting with another person who has their own set of beliefs, values and ideas can be a challenge. With social media surrounding us, it can be difficult to slow down long enough to identify how we feel about different situations and express those feelings in a helpful way.
Learning to work with people and communicate well in relationships will always take time, but I have found that the practice of mindfulness can help us slow down, understand what is going on with our thoughts and feelings and respond in the most supportive way.
I could go on and on about the benefits of mindfulness (and I definitely will! Stay tuned), but today’s episode is an intro to mindfulness, what it is and how it can help. Check it out!
