The Daily Pause #12

Your words are the vessel of your day. Just as a vessel shapes the water that it is filled with, our words shape the possibilities that we eventually live into. Rather than get frustrated or fall into the why-me / victim setting, pause and reflect to uncover how you may have created the present moment with your language.

Dr. Mark Hyman interviewed by Katie Couric at Ariana Huffington's conference on Mindfulness.

Stress is contagious. When we're stressed, we are prone to be harsher on ourselves, sharper with our friends and family, and less sensitive to the needs of strangers. The pause can bring us back to the present moment, and break the cycle of automaticity of the stress response. How would you choose a pause when under stress?

Deep Listening: When in a conversation, pause to practice deep listening. Notice if your mind is racing trying to create a clever retort, remark or rebuttal. Resist the urge to be right. Waiting for your turn to speak is not listening.
