Kernaussage 1 von 8

We communicate using two kinds of speech: nourishing and toxic speech.

From personal relationships to multibillion dollar business deals, healthy communication is vital. But what exactly is “healthy” communication?

It's best to think of communication like food. Some of it is nourishing, and some is toxic and poisonous.

Nourishing speech is understanding and positive, while toxic speech fills people with negative emotions like anger and frustration.

Imagine you're waiting for feedback on a project, when your boss comes in and says, “This is absolutely terrible. You're a useless waste of space.” That would certainly be toxic speech.

On the other hand, if she said, “I think there are some things we could improve here,” that would be nourishing speech. You could use it constructively.

So, how can you work more on your nourishing speech, and develop a healthier communication style?

The first step is to understand your own way of communication. You have to practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness means fully concentrating on yourself, your body and your breathing. It allows you to communicate clearly without judgement.

When you're in a mindful state, you'll feel detached, which allows you to examine your communication objectively. You'll realize some things you might want to say are toxic, so you'll be able to stop yourself before you say them.

Mindfulness also helps you become immune to the toxic speech of others. When you're being mindful, you can judge people less. You will understand them, and see that their toxic speech really is a result of their suffering. You'll feel more compassionate, so you’ll know not to take their hurtful words personally.

So, to make sure your conversations are healthy and nourishing, practice being mindful.
