MindfulnessThe simple act of paying attention is really the kindest thing you can do for yourself. When our mind is scattered it creates pain and disconnection, and that pain and disconnection gets picked up by others. It’s contagious. You’ve likely experienced what it feels like to take on that pain and disconnection from other people. The fact is, we’re sending it and sharing it all the time. But if each of us can take a moment or two to pay attention to where we’re at and what’s going on, that’s the kindest thing we can do. It’s being kind to ourselves and that kindness wears off on others.
