Mindfulness and anger

Next time you find yourself getting angry try doing something different. Try using mindfulness.

Notice what is happening in that moment. Notice the feelings and emotions that are being evoked by your anger. Notice your thoughts.

Tell yourself the truth: this will pass. Allowing yourself the knowledge that these feelings, thoughts and emotions are just that: just feelings, just thoughts, just emotions enables you to notice what else is happening in this moment. It enables you to observe the anger.

See how you experience anger without letting it control you.Β It enables you to separate yourself from the emotions and take composed action, if that is your choice.

The thoughts and emotions created by the anger will pass you by soon enough, they are not you. Know this as the truth and allow them to just ‘be’.

It gets easier every day.
