In this episode of Beyond the 1st Response, Christy and Ciara talk about how actively listening doesn’t just mean listen to others, but also to yourself.
Christy and Ciara chatted this week about active listening, and how actively listening can help not just you but your relationships. How it is healthy to listen to yourself, what you need and what you chose to do for yourself.
Having active conversations is so important for the mental health aspect in all areas of life, including your own self. It is ok to listen to yourself and say “I need to decompress”. Listening to yourself and what you need, will help you actively listen to the people around you, whether it be in the office, at the dinner table or with friends.
Christy talked about her annoyance with hearing people eat, and how it is linked to the fight or flight. We now learned that it has a scientific term as Misophonia. Christy now has a broader perspective on how she can sit down at the dinner table with her family and have an active listening conversation. Ciara will be having a deeper conversation with herself about getting into a better routine and going to bed earlier.
What can you do to listen to yourself better? And how can that active listening to yourself improve your overall life?
