Over the course of the pandemic, many people were sheltering in place and in each other’s space far more than ever before This can naturally cause a lot of tough issues to arise.
Six Effective Practices For Those difficult Moments
- Connect to your breath: Slow down your breathing and take deep breaths in and out your nose. Down regulate. When you connect to your breath, you can connect to your mind and body. When you do that, you can express whatever you are feeling more accurately. If someone is expressing anger towards you, practice deep breaths too. It will eventually slow everyone down enough to the point where you can hold a real conversation versus a screaming match.
- Attack the problem, not the person.
- It’s only a problem if you label it as such.
- What is the unmet need that is really at the root of it?
- Discover how to share what you are experiencing in the moment without having to resort to blame, shame and assigning guilt.
- You can be right or you can be in love but not both.
