1. Feel your emotions physically:- Whenever you feel strong emotions such as anger, sadness or any of such, electrical signals course through your brain and trigger physical sensations in your body. Again, it requires practice to be mindful of these sensations. The more you practice, more you will be able to notice the sensations and take action. Sensations could be breathing quickening, pounding heart, mouth going dry and other physical pains or symptoms. The practice of mindfulness meditation can help you greatly in this regard. Also, being ‘mindful’ throughout productive hours requires a lot of practice and commitment. Let’s take a practical demo of this- Close your eyes and imagine one of the most exciting moments in your life. As soon as you start feeling the emotions, notice those sensations physically. Same can be done with emotionally arousing moments.
