Mindfulness and Loneliness

Mindfulness can help us be more resilient in a time of isolation by helping us to cultivate a new relationship with loneliness. The attitudes and practices can provide a clearer and more compassionate lens through which we observe experience.

Relating Mindfully in a Time of Social Distance

In times of uncertainty and physical separation, the ability to relate to one another mindfully is more important than ever. Every call, text, email, and other means of relating across distance is ripe with the opportunity to make a meaningful connection through mindful communication.

Mindfulness and Relationships

Research is demonstrating that mindfulness can help us build stronger, more satisfying and resilient relationships - yet another example of how this innate human potential, when cultivated with benevolent intention, might help us reduce suffering in the world and increase wellbeing.

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EI), or the awareness of and ability to modulate emotions and interact with others empathetically, is positively correlated in the research with mindfulness and meditation practice. Cultivating EI helps us communicate, manage stress, and solve problems more effectively.

Self-Care as Responsibility

Self-care is something we must prioritize and attend to, not only for our own wellbeing, but also for the benefit of those we love. When we practice mindful self-care, we build the patience, trust and confidence needed to sustain compassion for self and others over the long term so we can truly make a difference.
