commMindful Communication

Words we use are double-edged swords. They can inspire and bring hope to someone or they can hurt and diminish someone’s spirit.

Good communication is essential to any healthy relationship, whether it’s between spouses, family members, friends, or co-workers. Mindfulness, the practice of nonjudgmental awareness can help us communicate more effectively and meaningfully with others in our personal and professional lives. The practice of mindfulness awareness in communication can change the way we speak and listen, enhance our relationships, and help us achieve our goals.
