Covid-19 might have us bunkered down but we can still share and discuss social anxiety and improve social skills :) This week we'll discuss a quiet mind. It goes without saying that a quiet mind is useful, but how do we quiet our minds in conversation? This week will be talking about some practical skills to implement learning how to quiet our minds in a moment of stress.
Covid-19 might have us bunkered down but we can still share and discuss social anxiety and improve social skills :) This week we'll discuss anger. Everything we're going through often just lingers under the surface until we are set off by one little thing, and sometimes that thing is a person in front of us that just had poor timing. How do we navigate conversation when so much is bubbling under the surface? How do we find healthy ways to express anger and embrace it rather than avoid it/bottle it up? How do we use introspection in mindfulness to navigate anger and our daily lives and interactions? These are some of the things that will be discussing this week. It's important to remember that I am not a counsellor or therapist, I simply have a genuine interest in having real authentic conversations about things that we are all experiencing simultaneously. It is also important to remember this is a safe space to share and be vulnerable. The conversation will be directed around how things pile up and how mindfulness can help.
Covid-19 might have us bunkered down but we can still share and discuss social anxiety and improve social skills :) This week we'll discuss humor in conversation! I had a student once say that he wanted to be more funny. There's a bunch of YouTube videos and articles on how to be funny, but I think that it's deeper than that, like everything else :) I believe being funny requires being present and genuine in reacting to what you observe in the moment, but with everything else going on in our lives and minds, sometimes that can be hard to focus observing the present. Surprise surprise so it would be hard to be funny. Being funny also requires confidence, the ability to laugh at ourselves and not take things too seriously. Which is hard when the chatter won't stop and the fears keep us quiet.
