Be the reason someone feels seen, heard and supported.
Wellbeing is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.
Wellbeing is a combination of a person's physical, mental, emotional, and social health factors. It is linked to happiness and life satisfaction. To sum it up simply wellbeing could be described as how you feel about yourself and your life. Every area of our life affects our wellbeing.
One of the areas that affect our sense of wellbeing is our relationships which are influenced by how we communicate.
Effective communication is a skill.
One of the simplest ways we can enhance our communication skills is to be present.
Being present is simply giving your whole attention to the other person. Listening without trying to formulate a reply or judge or making mental assumptions. When we are present its easier to engage in active listening.
