Emotions out of control? Visualize your emotions as ocean waves and see them wash up on the shore. Use this DBT distress tolerance skill to ground yourself. Ride the Wave or Urge Surfing meditation is great for when you are feeling overwhelmed, distressed, anxious, angry, triggered, or craving sweets. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that is backed by decades of research that helps teach people how to live in the present moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, improve their relationships with others, and regulate their emotions.
