- Sit with a difficult feeling about a situation. Try to identify where the emotion is in your body. Pay attention to this sensation. Now gently let it go. Feel the sensation gradually dissolve. If the thought that gave rise to it remains, do not try to push it away, simply distance yourself from it. Observe it as if it does not belong to you. Allow it to fade away.
- Breathing with your belly: when you sit down to meditation, notice first how you are breathing. Make a conscious effort to expand your belly when you breathe. Breathe deeply and slowly into your belly. Continue breathing this way for five minutes and then return to breathing naturally. Practice this regularly.
- Say: I am more than these feelings. Say it out loud. Really mean it. It will help.
