“I can’t put my finger on the why or the how, but I will tell you this much, for me... I am just happier. And meditation has much to do with that.” – Meghan Markle Social Studies RESEARCH ON BEING HUMANS TOGETHER May I speak plainly? Looks like honesty truly is the best pol- icy. A 2018 study found we tend to overestimate the risk of being honest with each other. Research- ers asked par- ticipants try being honest, kind, or conscious in their communications. Being honest, the study found, was the most pleasur- able and socially connecting, and wasn’t detrimental to relationships as was expected. Walk in another’s shoes In a virtual real- ity study called “Becoming Home- less,” participants interactively experienced sce- narios that could happen if you lost your job—such as getting an eviction notice and looking for possessions to sell. Later, they were more likely to show enduring empathic attitudes about homeless- ness, and even take action to aid home- less people. The liking gap If you’re one of the many people who get anxious about talking to new acquaintances, a recent study may offer solace. Researchers followed strang- ers’ meetings and found that gener- ally, after an intro- ductory conversa- tion, we tend to underestimate how much the other person enjoyed our company: a phenomenon the authors referred to as the “liking gap.” “MCS was the school for me from the first phone call. Their priority was to help me build a solid foundation in mindfulness while becoming an intuitive and skillful coach. I now embrace a daily meditation practice that grounds me in the present, and supports me and my clients in actualizing our dreams. People People are in awe when I tell them I coach clients from Beijing, Beirut, Madrid, orth America - it's a global community!” – Sue Shibley, Apprentice Coach Register online or call us at +1.505.906.6700 Join mindfulness practitioners from around the world for lively and contemplative online classes, for coaches and non-coaches alike! www.MindfulnessCoachingSchool.com Mindfulness Coaching School 16 mindful February 2019 what’s new PHOTOGRAPHBYPAULMARRIOTT/ALAMY
