Managing Emotions Mindfully
Face into your emotions with an attitude of Acceptance
Identify what is this emotion?
Where is it in my body?
Can I intuitively describe it? does it have a shape, a colour or particular texture?
Then name it: “This is sadness” or “This is despair” or “This is annoyance” or whatever it is
Acknowledge that the emotion is there
Allow it to be
Breathe into it with some deep breaths
Wonder about: What is behind the emotion? What has set it off?
Let go of the need to control the emotion. Let it flow and move. Allow what unfolds.
