Foster Relationships with Mindfulness

Foster Relationships with Mindfulness

Article by: Team Dhyana

Relationships are built along the way of our life. Some are gifted to us biologically and some we choose on our own. For the latter, we might not be bound to them by blood, but we choose this connection and therefore, it is less about chance and more about choice. The beauty of choice is that you have control over how you can better the relationship or ruin it. If you are reading this, you are certainly looking for ways to make that mindful choice in bettering your relationship. Relationships can be tricky, and sustaining them is an even trickier task. 

Here are a few things you can do to foster your relationships with mindfulness.

Communication is key.

The first and the most important aspect is communication. Communication is the core of any relationship. Fortunately, or unfortunately, we cannot read minds and that is why speaking your mind becomes even more imperative. Communicating your expectations and needs brings in clarity which in turn helps avoid misunderstandings. You can only communicate honestly, if you are mindful and true to yourself. That is how mindfulness benefits not just you but also others involved in your life.

Learn to be present.

All relationships are about  being there for each other. It’s not the highs but the lows that test the bond. When times get tough, the best thing you can do is be there for your friend/partner/co-worker or even an acquaintance you are trying to build a better bond with. You may not always have advice to give, but lending an ear that can empathise with them, surely helps. However, sometimes listening to their problems can overburden you. To avoid this, know where to draw the line. As empathy can also attract negative emotions, protecting your energy is paramount.

The S word.

We always think more means better and mistake quantity for quality, resulting in barely giving each other space. Space is as crucial as being there for each other. Spending all your energy on the relationship can be overwhelming and eventually become more of a task, therefore, taking time off and focusing on yourselves is key. Space keeps monotony away and ensures time spent together is cherished and not taken for granted. 

Ace Acceptance

There is no greater joy than the feeling of being accepted. We try to mould and change people our way, so that they are accommodated in our life just the way we want. Practicing mindful living teaches you to accept people and experiences as they are, which helps you avoid battles that can sabotage your peace. When you accept people the way they are, you surrender the obsessive need to alter things, you are at peace and you allow the other person to feel great about themselves too. 

While the above-mentioned points are idealistic, any ordinary person who wants to nourish their relationship, can ace it effortlessly by simply learning the art of mindfulness. Implementing mindfulness can ensure any bond goes a long way. It’s the key to improving the quality of your relationship, avoiding unnecessary barriers and building bonds that survive the test of time. If you wish to get started on your mindfulness journey, we have got you covered at Dhyana. Our Dhyana ring accompanies you on your journey towards becoming mindful, self-aware, and content.
