Mindful labelling practice
I’ve tried labelling distractions before during meditation, but I’ve never had as much success with it as I did just now! I anchored myself in my breath, and when my mind wandered, as it always does, I gave the thought a label and gently returned to my breath. I used short nonjudgmental labels, such as sound, feeling, and friend. The second I used a label, my mind released that thing, and relaxed even more into my breath, every single time. I progressively released and relaxed more and more. I feel cleansed and renewed now and it’s beautiful. Namaste. Thank you.
