Relating Mindfully - Yosemite Valley

Mindfulness is not just an introspective activity, in fact mindful awareness becomes a gift to those around us in relating to them.

We become less reactive, more present with people and more loving;

Some ways to be more present in your relationships:

  • Take the time to connect with your partner: On waking, leaving the house, arriving home and before sleep, take the a few moments to really connect – to look in each others eyes, say hello and have a hug
  • How are you really? – when someone asks you how you are change it from a unconscious “fine” to an opportunity to be mindful of how you really feel.
  • When something someone says triggers you – your partner, your boss, your friend, whoever, try this. Take a few breaths, feel your feet on the ground and PAUSE. Feel any emotion in your body and use your breath to centre yourself. And then decide whether you are ready to give a measured response now or if it better to take some time out and come back to them later!

In this way mindfulness is a gift to others and can transform your relationships!
