Eye - to - Eye meditation: The eyes are the “windows to the soul.” When we gaze deeply into the eyes of another person, we can see beyond their physical form and personality into their essence. The practice of eye gazing is an ancient Tantric practice. It is found in the Hindu, Buddhist and Sufi traditions and is considered to be a path to enlightenment.
Empathy for another: not only helps the person you empathise with, it also is healing for one’s self. It is the best kind of connection creation. On the other hand, people spend too much energy on complaining about their situation rather than doing something about it such as connect with other people.
Laughter yoga is a new twist on an ancient practice. Not only does it increase happiness, but it also strengthens the immune system, reduces pain and lowers stress. More contagious than a cough or sneeze, laughter relaxes the whole body. It triggers the release of endorphins, promoting an overall sense of well-being.
