Speaking to Stylist Magazine Moyle says: ‘Listening is a skill, and one that is sadly and too regularly lost in everyday life, especially as currently we are almost always multitasking between what we are doing an our phone screens.’
But why should we try it?
Moyle says: ‘When we give someone our full attention, and ask the question “How are you?” openly listening to their answer, we are showing them their importance. To have someone’s full attention is a demonstration that we are worth it and important enough to deserve it, which makes us feel special.’
A survey of 2,000 people by Bupa UK found that 68% put their health on a backseat over the holiday season.
According to Happiful magazine, the data also found that 30% of respondents would ignore symptoms of anxiety and a third said they would ignore feelings of hopelessness during the December period.
Speaking to Happiful magazine, Dr Luke James, Medical Director at Bupa UK, said: ‘When it comes to any mental health condition, early detection and access to treatment can have a positive impact on the long-term prognosis, so while that last bit of shopping may seem like a top priority, we should also try and make time to visit our doctor with any worrying symptoms for a happy, healthy New Year.’
