A BOX OF SIMPLE ADVICE Build connection through digital-free zones If eye contact, touch, and the way we use vocal tone (prosody) can help create connection, technology dilutes it. It pulls our gaze away and reduces human physical touch and can give us a sense of connection that often stays at the surface. Consider how you can create some tech-free zones throughout your day to increase your relational awareness and foster deeper connections in your daily life. to someone, consider the following: Is it True, is it Helpful, am I the best one to say it, is it Necessary, is it Kind? See how your interactions change. We might even imagine what the world would be like if everyone practiced this a little more. 10 Practice “Just like me” DNA research has revealed that regardless of gender, ethnicity, or race, humans are 99.9% the same. If you want to foster a greater sense of connection in your life, as you go through your day and encounter someone who you think is different from you, silently say, “Just like me,” and see what comes up. You may just experience the awareness that each of us wants the same things: to feel cared for and under- stood, and to experience a sense of belonging. 11 Experience joy for others Be on the lookout for moments when you notice that others are taking care of themselves, experiencing a success or accomplish- ment, or even just having a good day, and see if you can be happy for them. Some- times this joy for another’s happiness naturally arises, and other times it’s some- thing we can intentionally foster. If you feel so bold, tell them, “Good job” or “I’m so happy for you.” Not only can this create or strengthen your connec- tion, but it can amplify your own good feelings. ● AD DharmaCraf ts THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES Meditation Cushions Inspirational Jewelry DharmaKids Collection since 1979 dharmacrafts.com 866.339.4198 Keycode MFA Request a Catalog Call for Volume Discounts on Cushions Sign Up for Teaching Emails December 2016 mindful 37
