Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

Last night, I wanted to eat candy, but identified that I wasn't hungry. Started to wonder if emotions were lurking below the surface. I decided to play some meditation sounds from nature. I didn't feel up to a full meditation session, maybe because I am scared of exploring how I really feel. The background sounds helped me to center myself and see the dynamic of eating to dull my emotions. I am going to try this approach again today to avoid overeating and to allow space to look at my emotions.

I’ve noticed that excessive cell phone usage (especially when on social media) can pull down my mood, so I use an app called RealizD that constantly runs in the background to monitor my total time spent on my device. It may be discouraging at first, but it has improved my awareness and allowed me to make the necessary adjustments in my life to raise my mood accordingly

I try to remain in the present. I use my 5 senses to help me do this. Through touch, sight, sound, smell, and taste I can bring myself out of all my scattered thoughts and back into the present.

I try to spend some time practicing each day being present in this moment, rather than the future. It is very difficult for me but I am slowly making progress.

A coping skill I like to use is when I'm feeling sad, or upset, or jealous, or any down feeling emotion is to say something good about myself. If I feel unloved, I'll reassure myself that I'm loved and I'm important.

I do a senses walk: 5 things I can see; 4 things I can touch; 3 things I hear; 2 things I smell; 1 thing I taste.

I think about my future. My own apartment. Our cat. My beautiful girlfriend. Our bed. Rainy days. Watching cartoons. Laughing. Pictures together. I've got one more year. Then I'm moving out

I think about the beach. I imagine myself just laying there listening to the waves crash onto the shore. Breathing in the ocean air. Looking at the never ending horizon of water. It's beautiful

I was recently taught proper eating hygiene or mindful eating. Eat slow, eat without doing other things and do not eat on the run.
