Good conversation is an art that seems to be fading fast in our tech driven society. At work, at home, at school, and at play – we too often become distracted by just about everything except for the person or the people we are talking to. We are losing our ability to listen carefully and respond creatively.
Mindfulness is a skill that helps us to become more aware of when our attention is elsewhere, so that we can bring it back and focus on being present and alert to what a person has to say.
It can’t be stressed enough how important conversation is into our lives. In fact, effective communication skills can help solve relationship problems. It is through this activity that we connect with people, share our hopes and dreams, learn a new thing or two, be challenged and inspired.
