Tip #24 for the holiday season: Be Present
The greatest present we can offer each other is our presence. So many people suffer in the world because they don’t feel seen, heard, or understood. Listen deeply and with compassion. Be curious. Ask questions. When you notice yourself getting distracted, gently bring yourself back to the conversation.
How presence is the best present from the Calm team:
Jade: It feels really special to be heard. I have felt most supported when someone has taken the time to listen to me, ask questions, but not try to fix or change my situation. It feels like someone truly understands me and helps me feel really supported!
Christi-an: I love it when I’m telling someone about something that matters to me and they say, “tell me more”. It feels so good to know that they are listening and curious.
