When we practice mindfulness, we’re stepping outside our own thoughts and into our partners, allowing us to empathize and feel what it is like to be in his or her shoes. It helps build bridges that will increase our connection and intimacy, lower stress, lessen conflict and increase our overall happiness. In short, it makes our partner feel heard, prioritized and nurtured. – Stacy Kaiser
