Give Your Empathy a Boost | Psychology Today

Whether you are a man or woman, empathy is a dying art. Life is so loud and distracting it becomes harder to sense what is going on around us. The less we are aware in the moment, the harder it is to tune into other people’s feelings and intentions….

 

To increase your empathy, you have to both control your wandering mind and strengthen your capacity to empathize through practice. Here’s how:

 

Be quiet, inside and out…

Fully watch as well as listen…

Ask yourself what you are feeling…

Test your instinct…
