Have you ever found yourself feeling down after listening to a friend talk about her problems? Or have you ever felt enormous joy after learning that your good friend gave birth to her first baby? Did it seem like good and bad situations happened to you?
These instances where you show care and compassion towards people you care about are experienced by many people. It is called having empathy.
While people experience the feeling, they know very little about what empathy actually is. It is considered as the experience of feeling what others feel and understanding their thoughts. Simply put, empathy is all about putting yourself in other people's shoes.
Often, emotional empathy is confused with the concept of sympathy. While the two ideas may be similar in thought, sympathy is the feeling usually expressed in sorrowful situations. Empathy, on the other hand, covers both happy and sad times.
Empathy in the workplace is...
Most of the time, people are advised to think positive and wait for good things to happen. Some are even told to stay strong amid a crisis because soon things will work out just fine. There is no doubt that these words of wisdom have merit, but they do not work when people still choose to engage in their unhealthy behavior.
Negative thoughts, emotions, and feelings are sabotaging you in so many ways. They hinder you from building up on your mental health. Doing away with all this negativity can bring back the life in you.
People who want to build up their physical health go to the gym and exercise regularly. On top of that, they also control their food intake to make sure that they lose fat and build muscle.
And yet, what people...
Being angry at another person is only mad at yourself, and realizing this is only able to be digested and fully integrated through breath and humor.
People get angry for a variety of reasons, but typically it is because of an uncomfortable situation that seems to be repeating itself or because of strain in our relationships. There are four easy and simple steps to fall back in your better feeling self.
If we, in the moment, attempt to suppress the feelings that we have, we are telling ourselves that our emotions are not valid.
The breath must be practiced in times of peace and calm in meditation. If we are only focusing on your breathing when we are stressed and upset, then we will subconsciously associate the things. When my four-year-old daughter, Lincoln, gets angry, I have a beautiful practice to bring her back to her breath and finding her center. We've meditated together since she...
Have you ever gotten out of bed feeling as if nothing could ruin your day? Or are your days more about dragging yourself out of bed just to get ready for work? How you feel is a direct reflection of your state of mind.
Self-esteem and self-confidence are the two things that you need to propel yourself towards a positive mood. If you are always anxious about how things work out, you are putting yourself under a lot of stress. Everything in life, no matter what you do or how they turn out, will always feel like it's going awry.
At times when it feels like nothing is going right, it is your confidence that takes the strongest hit. But if you continuously remind yourself to live a life of gratitude, joy, and love, you will feel amazing from deep within.
You will always have that positive mindset that will keep you going. You will move through the day with purpose and complete every task with utmost enthusiasm. All these are a part of learning who you...
What makes you happy? Often, people attach their idea of happiness to a particular outcome. And yet, they find themselves disappointed when things turn out that way. They begin to ask if there is some way they can be happy on their own.
Learning how to detach yourself emotionally may be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. You must learn to teach yourself to live without what you are longing for. That’s the only time you can indeed be happy.
This paradox of life has made many people wonder if emotional withdrawal is the key to finding their ultimate happiness. When you recognize the truth that nothing or no one else can make you happy but yourself, that’s the only time you will see the difference in your life. But what does it mean to be detached?
The dictionary defines the term detachment as “the state of being aloof or objective.” You have to teach yourself to look at things from an objective...
How does your brain shape your thoughts? While people think that they are in charge of what or how they think, many different factors come into play before ideas are produced. Your thoughts are controlled by the language that you speak.
How does language influence culture? It does so in many ways. The syntax, vocabulary, tone, diction—all of these are affected culturally. Your view of the world is expressed through the language that you speak.
The cultural background of that very language affects how you think and how your thoughts are shaped. While it may not be as evident as the other influences, it makes you distinctly who you are.
What comes first—language or thought? Linguists have been trying to figure out what influences what. Do people who speak the language influence their ideas, or does thought influence the language that they speak?
It is a mind-boggling idea. But...
If you have not meditated before, don't worry. It's effortless and supportive, especially if the intention is increased clarity in decision making. Meditation is about listening, not about doing.
When we experience a lack of clarity in a decision, it is often because we have forgotten the WHY. Why are you doing anything? What are the things that more directly contribute to the fulfillment of the vision? Keeping a simple poster or sign up in your workspace with the idea, mission, or intention of your work will assist you in your decision making.
Don't give your power away in the sense of the person you ask, "knows more than you and therefore knows what's best." Rather, gather another perspective to consider. If you are stuck on a decision that you have to make, then the simple act of getting an opinion from someone unrelated and unattached to the outcome can assist you in getting...
Have you been feeling sick lately? Do you often get irritated by the simplest of noise that you hear? Are you not getting enough sleep at night? These are signals that something is not right.
Perhaps, it is not just your body who's trying to tell you something. When it seems as if you are worried about a lot of things and your mind is perpetually feeling exhausted, maybe you need to look into what's beyond the mind and the body.
All these things that you feel are symptoms that you should try cleansing your aura right away.
Before you try to learn anything about how to cleanse the aura, you must establish what it is and how you understand it. That's the only way to begin the cleansing process.
The aura is the energy field that surrounds your body. It is like a magnetic field that surrounds the body attracting all the different energies around it. Good or bad, your aura picks up on emotions, psychic debris, health, and even the...
The primary benefits of overcoming the fear of public speaking accrue NOT within the area of public speaking.
You realize that overcoming any fear is not about the ability to do what you are fearful of, but rather that overcoming your fear is a direct communication to your subconscious that you cannot be stopped from fulfilling your desires. Anyone can speak publicly so long as they can talk. This realization that fears being conquered is a step toward a more easeful, prosperous, happy life can be THE motivating factor.
Practice talking about a topic that you know a lot about.
Know that your personality is what needs to come out. Therefore, if you feel nervous speaking up in a meeting or to a group, this is not a BAD thing. There is just stagnant energy that wants to be moved. Getting in the flow is a prerequisite.
Particularly with public speaking, there is a particular aspect of overcoming this fear. There is a reason that it is one of the most common phobias. This...
