I've got this meditation app on my smartphone that's really made a difference for me. I can choose from a variety of 5-10 minute guided meditations depending on my present mood.
One quote from a recent meditation is playing over & over again in my head:
"At the most basic level, you are alive and breathing."
Close your eyes for a moment.
Let that sink in.
Powerful, isn't it? Especially when your whole world seems like it's on the brink of apocalyptic destruction - this phrase is vital to bring you back to the present moment.
Next time you find your emotions and feelings spiraling out of control, take a few minutes to breathe and repeat this to yourself:
"At the most basic level, I am alive and breathing."
How did that feel for you? What came up for you?
