4 Meditations to help manage difficult emotions

During this stressful time, we may be struggling with difficult emotions or body sensations. Here are four different meditations that may help:

1. Here is a short (8 min.) meditation: https://www.uclahealth.org/marc/mpeg/05_Working_with_Difficulties.mp3

2. Mindfulness Daily brings you a free 40-day training with two meditation  teachers, Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. Each daily 10–15 minute lesson includes a short talk and a guided meditation:  https://www.soundstrue.com/products/mindfulness-daily

3. Remember to find time for you today – even if it is just 10-15 minutes. Try this Body Scan meditation:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS2yDmWk0vs

4. This walking meditation will help you connect with yourself and nature. 

Go for a walk and expand your awareness like a floodlight to everything that you see and hear.

Feel your feet on the ground and take time to notice that you are connected with the world around you. Pause, really feel your feet connect to the earth. Take a few moments to sense your head rising up toward the sky, connect with the universe above.

Gently start strolling and take time to notice each foot fall and your muscles that are involved. Take note of everything around you as you walk (if you can stay with this for 5-10 minutes).

At the end, send positive thoughts to yourself and the world and find one thing to be grateful for.
