Mindfulness is about living in the moment and being fully aware of what is going on at all times. When we “practice” this while mindfully meditating – following the breath and not allowing any thoughts in…letting them float by like clouds on a windy sky…then there is a “spillover effect” into everyday life: being able to be mindful while doing (almost) anything and having clearer focus, greater calm and enhanced creativity-productivity!
It’s easy to forget to live in the moment while keeping the big picture in sight. It’s helpful to remember that life is transient; many “unfortunate” or “worrisome” things are temporary and that the only time that truly exists ever is right now. RIGHT NOW is the ONLY time you can do or change anything in your life. And NOW is the only time you have. There are few of us that live in the present, we are forever anticipating what is to come or remembering what has gone.
I’ve been trained in the practice of mindfulness by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and co-facilitated MBSR groups with a local medical doctor. Mindfulness is in the curriculum for Anger Management, and is highly effective in helping to create good choices in all areas of life and career. Corporate and organizational seminars and classes onsite are available.

There is no reason to let a difficult person or situation have power over your state of being. Sometimes we encounter those individuals who, for whatever reason, can be difficult to deal with. The behavior/words of difficult people can even make you feel like losing your temper. Keeping your cool and staying calm is important, especially if/when you are ready to confront them.
Avoiding a difficult person is not always in your best interest, especially if you live or work together, this can become a source of stress and anxiety. In these situations, it is best to kindly address the problem while not letting their actions or mood affect you. You may want to think about what you want to say to a difficult person before you actually talk to them to express your feelings directly, ie: tell the person how their actions/words make you feel (without taking on the role of a victim) and when possible encourage them toward a more positive course of action. Another approach for dealing with a difficult individual is to gain a deeper understanding of who that person is by asking them why they do or say certain things, and perhaps guide them to a shift in perspective.
Often a lot can be accomplished when you take the time to listen actively and perhaps offer up alternative perspectives. Try to approach the conversation objectively without being judgmental or defensive. If the person is open to the idea, try coming to an agreement. If approaching them fails, let it go and move on. When this is impossible to do it’s important to find help and get support.
