I was at a conference recently on Mindfulness and the speaker discussed some ways to stay in the moment and to avoid creating unnecessary tension or stress, particularly when engaged with another. He used the acronym WAIT to stand for "why am I talking"? This is not really a new technique, but one that seems like a good reminder to all of us when we feel some of the more turbulent emotions bubbling up inside. A little whisper of WAIT can keep us quiet, safe, and resistant to making a difficult situation worse.
Have a great day, listen, and enjoy that which nature and others bring you.
