Mindfully Connecting With OthersMay 11, 2017 Mindful Coping Skills For The Real World
Jeff talks about how mindfulness practice has changed his perspective on the importance of connecting with others in a more genuine way despite dealing with chronic depression and being naturally introverted and inclined to isolating himself sometimes. He shares stories about how his practice has enabled him to more deeply understand what goes on in his mind when he is in the company of others and why he aims for a life of balance between meaningful and enriching time spent with others and time spent in solitude. He reflects on how he has found profound healing in learning how to be with others in a way that allows him to be more "present in the moment" with them.
