Pay Attention to Your Response

Ask yourself a few questions to unearth how you respond in various situations and if these responses are coming from your heart.


You learned how to respond to others and to events when you were
between the ages of 2 and 8. You may have refined some of these
responses, but it’s common for us to be functioning through filters
and lenses created a long time ago.

Try this at the end of your day:

  1. Breathe in to the count of 8, hold for 8 and exhale to your count of 16.
  2. Repeat 3 times.
  3. Now that you’re more relaxed, consider fully your day.
  4. Recall the various interactions and events.
  5. Ask yourself how you feel about your part, your responses.
  6. Notice where you feel uncomfortable, this might be a physical sensation like a slight clenching of your stomach.
  7. This is a good sign that your response might not have been consistent with your values. Think about this.
  8. What might have been a better response?
  9. Can you clarify the difference between the old and the new?
  10. This is a way to begin learning new responses. Responses that reflect who you are now.
