How To control Your Emotions By Meditating (with a meditation for beginners)

Discover an effective and easy way to control your emotions with a simple meditation for beginners

It’s been scientifically proven by groundbreaking research that observing and naming your emotions helps you control them, and the best way to do that is through meditation.

Brain scans have shown that when we associate negative emotions with words we calm the emotional centre of the brain. This is cited as being one of the main reasons why meditation is of psychological benefit because when we meditate we become better able to observe our emotions and thus to name them.

This news seconds the belief held by psychologists that talking about our feelings and emotions enables us to take control of them (and, vice-versa, being unable to talk about our feelings can lead to a person suffering depression).

Research by UCLA psychologist Matthew Lieberman showed that naming emotions caused the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex region—an area associated with thinking in words about emotional experiences— to become more active and activity in the amygdale to become calmer.

  4. You are now doing a basic meditation. Continue to focus on your breath and notice any thoughts or emotions that occur.
