Do you ever feel like you have a strong mindfulness practice or yoga practice but then when it comes to relationships you struggle to stay calm in conflict?
Margo Helman specializes in staying mindful in the ways we communicate especially during conflict.
Margo Helman, MSW is a therapist and clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience. She shares a lot of wisdom in this episode about mindfulness as a mental health practice, how to stay calm but confident in a confrontation, and how we can mindfully relate to everyone we meet.
In this episode we not only talk about why it’s so important to be mindful about the way we are communicating, we also talk about practical tips on how to stay calm in a conflict.
This has been a particularly helpful subject for me. It’s helped as I’ve learned to apply my mindfulness practice to more places in my life. Often I have a tendency to back down from a conflict. With some better techniques it is possible to stay calm in that conflict and stills stay confident and very present.
