Sometimes we're feeling uncomfortable and that's okay.
I used to push away my feelings because I didn't want to feel. I was searching for happiness. What I didn't realize was that I could only feel joy if felt all the other feelings along the spectrum.
Uncomfortable (and all other) feelings come and go. When I'm feeling irritable or tired, I acknowledge it, and ask myself what I need.
WHAT FEELINGS ARE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR YOU?!
Let's face it: we can't be in the present moment all the time.
I make time to meditate before I go to bed and make sure that I put away my phone so that I can enjoy what's in front of me.
THE BODY SIGNALS TO US WHEN WE'RE STRESSED
Whenever I'm anxious, I feel my heart racing. I used to ignore my body's signals. Now I've learned that my body's signals let me know how to take care of myself. When I'm feeling anxious, I get to recognize it and what's triggering it.
I know what it feels like. I used to be worried all the time, to the point where I couldn't enjoy what was in front of me.
I know...you might not want to hear it, but meditation helped lessen my anxiety.
I never used to like meditating. I didn't want to add one more thing to my to-do list.
I would get frustrated because I never felt like I was doing it "right".
I never felt as though I were attending to my breath. Before I'd try to push my feelings away and think, "Ahhh I can't stand being anxious."
What I did notice was that meditating has allowed me to identify thoughts and feelings that arise. I am now better at recognizing when I'm anxious. Now, I no longer try to push away the anxiety. Now I'm better at sitting with the discomfort and I feel the anxiety pass more quickly.
