Practice Empathy

Omni and Fatima


Empathy is the ability to see the world as another person, to share and understand another person’s feelings, needs, concerns and/or emotional state. Empathy is a selfless act, it enables us to learn more about people and relationships with people – it is a such an important skill for us to practice!  Here are a few steps for you to try this week:

1. Listen attentively to others

2. Demonstrate interest and understanding with your body language – smiles, tears, head nods, eye contact

3. Reflect on what the person just said, take some time to reply

4. Validate and show understanding with your words

5. Offer help – if you have the skills, talents and abilities this person needs volunteer to use them

How will you practice empathy today?
