Mindfulness Meditation IV: Sending Thoughts Away on Leaves
Much of the emotional distress people experience is the result of thinking about upsetting things that have already happened or anticipating negative events that have yet to occur. Distressing emotions such as anger, anxiety, guilt, and sadness are much easier to bear if you only focus on the present - on each moment one at a time. This exercise will help increase your mindfulness of the present moment so that you can clear away thoughts about past and future events.
