Be a Good ListenerHow good of a listener are you? This week, engage in a conversation with a senior and try actively listening to their thoughts and concerns.
In today’s world, it’s not always easy to stay focused in a conversation. We’ve got 100 things on our minds to get done, a smartphone in our pocket buzzing with updates and a constant feeling of “hurry up” when it comes to daily tasks.
Relax, take a deep breath, and disconnect for a few minutes before you have your next conversation with a loved one. By clearing your thoughts, you’ll be able to actively listen to their words, give better non-verbal cues and participate in the conversation with questions and suggestions – showing them the respect and dignity that is incredibly important to their wellbeing.
Tell us how your more focused conversation went in the comments.
