Learning Something New

When someone (someone else or ourselves) is learning something new we need be patient and kind. Everyone learns in their own way and at their own pace. Mistakes are a natural part of doing something new. When teaching someone, offer encouragement and positive reinforcement. Whether we’re learning something new or showing someone something new, it’s helpful to stay relaxed, present and focused. Remember to breathe, slowly, smoothly and deeply.
