How can I practice mindfulness during feedback?

Recommended Posts

You can use the Mindfulness to step back and catch "your breath" and scan your emotions when you notice that you can't stay neutral in the conversation. And then let go and perhaps name the feeling and focus on the facts.

Especially because you can become overwhelmed by emotions when the feedback looks like  a threath and can give you the feeling you are not respected or perhaps you are getting the idea that you will loose your job.

I agree @Henriette - I think taking that pause is so important so that we're not reacting to what is being said out of fear. My dad has often said, "Things always look different in the morning." And it's the same with even just taking a moment (or many moments) pause. Once we're able to get a different perspective on things, our response/reaction changes.

@Henriette this is great information about the mindfulness technique. I wish I had known about it much earlier in my life. It would have saved me a lot of anxiety and grief.

I love everything Deva Premal does, but really love this. I love doing mantra meditation. Imagine sitting comfortably in the sun, your whole body warm and relaxed, while listening to this music. Divine.

I just came upon this video, but when I went to listen to it, I realized I left my headphones at home! (I'm in a quiet cafe at the moment so will have to wait to watch it).

But, it seems really interesting and hugely related to this thread! Based on the title and description, it seems to cover the tricky realm of giving and receiving feedback. If anyone gets to watching it, let me know your thoughts!

    • yes thank you for your wishes - i am creating a slideshow video of her for my husband - and here is a picture of chotu, my kitten from india and beasley (beagle) cuddling together - a very rare moment as they have only known each other for 10 months - any ways i am just grateful this forum exists...here's a picture of luna - our blind husky also. Thank you for checking out the meditation - could you share the moola mantra link? - i have one by deva premal  , but not sure its the same one  🙂
    • Tell me about it! It took me years to realize how they saw me. I am not a perfectionist-you should see my house. I am what I call domestically  challenged. It is not awful but not great. I hear what you say about others having so little and I am always aware of the fact that what I have is so much more than many. I do not forget that ever. It is just the big picture of my life that is hard but you are right I need to practice acceptance more and  make my bed every day not just for neatness but there is something about getting that done that seems positive. I spend the first hours after breakfast doing online activist stuff and that is never fun.Such a list as you have is very easy to accomplish. I am good at those things.I am trying and I thank you for your encouragement. Good luck getting through that list! Reading is a wonderful thing which I do at breakfast, dinner, and at bedtime. it really is the smaller things that are important.  I am grateful although i may not sound like it and I will have to try thinking of 3 things every day. 
    • I am sorry to hear about Beasley. It is hard to see them suffer and I love the idea of the forest baths. My Henry loved the woods. I like listening to the Moolah mantra if you know that one and find myself singing/chanting as I walk sometimes. You love trees as I do and I am guessing you live somewhere beautiful. We are lucky. We do what we can for our animals and the answer is never clear. I made a decision and no matter what choice I made i would have questioned it. Beasley is loved and will go peacefully-if only all animals could do that. It will be hard for you and particularly your husband maybe. I understand. Thank you for the meditation. I did it and will save it. She has a peaceful manner. I will try to look up the playlist as well.    
    • such amazing shares from everyone here - i happened to listen to tara brach's rewiring for happiness part 1 - and i loved her suggestion to write or email 3 things we are grateful for, for the next 15 days - then when she asks us to whisper all the things we are grateful for, till she rings a bell, my last sentence was - i am grateful for being able to be grateful... 💚🙏🏼  
    • One of our dogs (actually my husband's dog, but i love her very much too) was diagnosed with congestive heart failure a few ago, and we started doing forestbaths which is to take the dogs into the forest everyday and its been so healing for us and a way for us to spend time with her and it invigorates here - which i imagine gives her a "new" lease on life...and we have been playing snatam 's kaurplaylist to honor the departed which is just beautiful and deva premal & mittal, and the dogs and my kitten (i brought hi from india)  seem to enjoy it...My husband is an arborist and so we love to spend as much time in the forest as we can. I also recorded a 5 minute meditation for my husband - as Beasley is his dog and i know that he will need many calming moments as Beasley begins to decline. so far we are giving her accupuncture treatments which seem to be helping and just wish we had the money and time for a heart surgery... and would love to share it with you guys since there is some much strife in the world at the moment, in addition to lockdowns, and quarantines...
