I have always believed that the most powerful and important thing we as health care providers have to offer our patients is our ability to listen. My young friend and I had such a fun and interesting conversation! Children are naturally mindful. It’s their default setting! Their minds are not so cluttered by the past and the future as adult minds. Having a genuine conversation with a child and truly paying attention is a powerful exercise in mindfulness. We can learn so much about ourselves, each other, and our world just by listening to children!
