#1 Be Present

The way to connect to those you love is by being present – over and over and over again! Being present means fully engaging in what is being shared between you in that moment – truly paying attention to the thoughts, feelings, and actions you are experiencing together. This may sound obvious and straightforward, and it is.  But how often do we let other distractions interfere with true presence? Without engaged presence, relationships quickly wither.
