Join us for a mindfulness of emotions meditation. In this practice, we follow our regular meditation object--say the breath or sound--but every 30 seconds we ask ourselves what emotion we're feeling. We label our feeling with a word or phrase, and then go back to our regular meditation object.
This practice can be helpful for us to understand our emotions just as they are arising. With negative emotions in particular, simply noting what we're feeling can help us get back to neutral.
