How do you already practice mindful teaching in your classroom?

Mindful teaching can take many different forms in the classroom. These include being reflective, practicing meditation, stopping and paying attention, and exploring multiple perspectives on an issue. You may already be using some of these mindful teaching practices regularly without calling it "mindful teaching." Assume for a moment that you already are practicing mindful teaching. How would you describe it to a friend, colleague, or student?
