Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

Mindful Mondays, with Waylon Lewis.

“Every Monday, I offer a mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

Rough workload? Overwhelm? Busyness, conflict?

Try a little tenderness.

“You’re going to hear a lot of trite advice. And that’s because cliches are often have some truth to them.

Taking a deep breath is vital.

Being kind to yourself, but also being honest with yourself is vital.

Overall, I just wanted to give what I think is one little secret little ingredient: try a little tenderness.” ~ Waylon Lewis

Watch the first half of Waylon’s Mindful Monday video this week:

Or listen to the podcast version: 

“If we can keep that little spot of tenderness and openness and actually listen, instead of always trying to be right in every conversation, we can actually both share our experience and our ideas, but also try to listen and learn and correct course. Then we can actually be of benefit.

At Elephant Journal we use this hashtag, which is our mission: #mayitbeofbenefit. And that’s what it’s all about, right? We can go through life sharing and cultivating a little bit of kindness.” ~ Waylon H. Lewis
