Are You Responding Or Are You Reacting?

“Between stimulus and response lies a space. In that space lie our freedom and power to choose a response. In our response lies our growth and our happiness.” – Viktor Frankl

You know those times when someone’s driving you crazy? When your self-image of a kind and empathetic person is being tested?

Yep, we’ve all had those!

The bad news is that there’s no shortcut here. To respond mindfully can be pretty damn hard sometimes.

The good news is that it’s something we can work on, and it’s absolutely rewarding.

In this episode, I present several tactics for specifically this kind of work.

They’re based on nonviolent communication, Buddhist psychology, and neuroscience!

It all starts with an honest talk to yourself, it takes some deep breathing, and entails certain important reminders.

Don’t waste your energy on unnecessary worry, analyses, and anger – listen to this episode now.
