One Breath Before Responding = Better Listening

“Before you respond in a conversation, take a breath. Not an enormous, loud, obvious breath that screams out ‘I am trying a new technique for better listening!’ No, just a normal, simple, ordinary breath. That’s it. The whole technique, right there.”

—Kenneth E. Miller, “A Simple and Powerful Technique for Better Listening.” Psychology Today. September 21, 2018.
