127: Just Be Nice

The next time you want to shout, “Hey, you a**hole!”, at the person who cut you off, try practicing some compassion. No really, it’s the single greatest tool to help you navigate rush hour traffic, a screaming child or a partner who has been getting on your nerves. It can sound a bit ‘woo woo’, but learning to practice more compassion toward ourselves and others can have a profound impact on our relationships and overall well being. Listen to today’s show to get the tools and tips to bring more compassion into your life.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Understand the balance involved in creating a truly compassionate life.
  • The tools and tips to become more compassionate to yourself and others on a daily basis.
  • Learn how to be curious about what the other person is experiencing in order to become more compassionate.
  • How understanding that everybody has a life story will help you be more compassionate.
  • The tips to realizing that kindness is always possible.
  • And much more!

Laura Jack, author of #1 best selling book, The Compassion Code: How to say the right thing when the wrong thing happens, teaches compassionate communication and how we can relate to one another more effectively during the challenging moments in life. Her mission is to cultivate a culture of compassion, starting with self, and to create a better understanding of loss and its accompanying grief.
