#LiveWholeHealth: Are You Listening?

1 min read

Listening is one of the most important skills we can learn, as it impacts every area of our lives. Listening is how we gather information, make decisions and build strong relationships. It can improve our health and well-being, make us more successful at work, and shows the speaker that we value what they have to say. Learning to listen mindfully is one of the best ways to improve this critical skill.

Mindful listening asks you to make a conscious effort to listen to the other person without judgement, recognize and let go of your internal distractions, and try to understand their point of view. Doing this helps you hear their words, remember what they said, and show them your respect.

Practicing mindfulness can help you improve your listening and observation skills. We invite you to spend 10 minutes with Dr. Greg Serpa from the Greater Los Angeles VAMC as he guides us through a Mindfulness of Sounds exercise.
