A 10-Minute Meditation to Work with Difficult Emotions

When we deny what’s difficult by putting our heads in the sand, we create more suffering. Here’s a 10-minute meditation to reverse the tendency to start digging. ​​Can you feel the heat? Life feels a little more intense these days: at home, work, out in the world. When life begins to feel more intense than normal, it’s important to remember to slow down, turn toward these bigger feelings, and see the bigger picture. Take each day at a time.
