We all have those people in our lives — people who make us feel frustrated or anxious.
Practicing compassion for the people who hurt or frustrate us can be tough. But it’s one of the most important parts of being mindful.
MyStrength, a free benefit through Asante, offers a guided exercise to help build your empathy.
- Are arguments too overwhelming? Know that it’s OK to take a break. Take a deep breath. Then, let the other person know that you need a couple of minutes. Use the time to calm down before resuming.
- To truly see the benefits, you’ll have to build a regular practice.
