T.H.I.N.K Before You Speak

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

So I just wanted to check in on you

and see how you went with bringing

more mindful speech into your day, likeI spoke about in yesterday's session.

So, um, of course don't worry if

you missed yesterday's session

or if you forgot about it, you

can always try this again today.

So, one of the most popular and

simple ways to remember the basic

principles of mindful speech

is by using the acronym, THINK.

So T H I N K.

So you see the idea is to

think before you speak.

So T is for is it true.

So we don't want to speak words

that we don't know to be true.

So that means that we're not speculating

or making assumptions about people or

talking about sort of our opinions.

We're only speaking what we

actually know to be true.


So H is for, is it helpful.

So a lot of gossip and criticism,

for instance, it's not really

helpful or nourishing for people.

So we want to speak words that help create

goodwill and connection as best we can.

I, is for inspiring.

So in other words, will

these words inspire uplift,

nourish, and nurture others?

Um, we want to, you know, really inspire

what's best in people rather than

creating sort of disconnection or pain.

N, is it necessary?

Sometimes we give our viewpoints, um, or

we say something that we regret later.

You know, we say things when

they're not really needed.

So sometimes it's good to just take

a pause and think about whether

something needs to be spoken.

K is for is it kind.

You know, we don't want to speak

words that create suffering.

We want our words to be sources

of love, comfort, and happiness.

So T is it true.

H is it helpful.

I, is it inspiring.

N, is it necessary.

K, is it kind.

So the invitation for all of us

is to see if we can apply these

principles in the way we speak

to others this week and beyond.

Now, it might feel a bit tricky at

first, but the more you practice

these principles, the easier it gets

until it just becomes a way of being.

So the more you practice it, practice

cultivating mindful communication,

the more you naturally unlock

your capacity for more authentic,

loving, and joyful relationships.

It dissolves tensions, opens hearts

and minds and creates true connection

in an increasingly disconnected world.
