Dealing with difficult moments

By: Aileen Baxter

During difficult moments here are some tips I’ve found helpful in getting me through the day. One of my favourite meditations when I am stressed is to sit and focus on my breath, imaging there is a mountain is sitting inside me and using the strength of the mountain to ground me, reminding me to be aware of how I’m feeling right now and accept those feelings. I also try to remind myself to take one step at a time, focus on the moment I am in and try and not think too much about what might happen in the future. If I find myself getting caught up in the worry cycle, coming back to my breath and bringing myself back to this moment. I hope these tips help, please get in touch if you want some more tips or to practice meditation together.
