Mindful Listening 2

Mindful listening begins with grounding yourself.  Take a few moments to focus on your breath and allow your mind to transition to receiving new information.  Quietly set an intention for yourself to simply listen without commenting, problem solving, or interrupting.  If possible, indicate your attention by using eye contact and other forms of non-verbal communication.  Maintain an air of openness in your body language, smile, nod your head, and emit an occasional “um-hmm”.  These actions can be extremely helpful in improving communication and building rewarding relationships.
