MINDFULCOMMUNICATION DAYBecome a more mindful communicator by practicing. Productive practice takes time, effort, and attention. Start by being more aware of your surroundings, those with whom you are communicating, and especially, yourself. Focus an entire day on communication. Try to be more aware than you usually are of the various communicative elements that make up your interactions and environments throughout the day.Consider the following:• Who are the senders and receivers? Why are you and they motivated to communicate?• Notice instances of communication about making sense, sharing sense, and creating meaning.• What kind of noise did you notice?• How do different spaces impact communication? How do you adapt your own style and content of communication to the person with whom you are communicating?Keep these questions in mind and do your best to practice all of the communication principles outlined in chapter 1 of the text (and addressed throughout the book). They are listed below for review. **Give extra attention to the first communication principle; it is an excellent starting point in a plan to strengthen communication habits. Notice how being mindful and aware are both fundamental aspects of the other principles.Spend the day being as mindful and aware as possible, and see how you do with each of the five communication principles.A.
