Avoiding a heated exchange

When we disagree with someone, it doesn't have to turn into a heated argument.

Staying mindful during the exchange allows us to select conversation and debate in ways that do not aggravate the situation.

How to be mindful in an argument

  • Start with yourself. How do you relate to the person or topic discussed?
  • Check in with your body. What are you feeling - are you uneasy, frustrated, angered, fearful? Note it, and allow yourself to be in it.
  • Pause, breathe, and return to your center. What are you arguing for or against? What outcome do you desire? Can you let go of your desire for it?

Defusing an argument

  • Try to agree on what it is you are trying to resolve. Many arguments are the result of miscommunication.
  • When you express differing opinions, try to do so without coming across as angry.
  • If the disagreement continues, speak your truth even when it is difficult.
  • Remain calm and try to be respectful of the other person.
  • Keep an open mind to find a peaceful resolution.
  • Be thankful for the experience. It can help you grow and learn about yourself.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
