Effect on Emotions
- Mindfulness has helped me to be aware of what my emotions actually are. Up until a few years ago, before I started getting into personal development, I think my vocabulary for emotions was very limited.
- I thought in the beginning, maybe it was because English is not my first language. Maybe I just hadn't learned the words. But I've also not used the words.
- I actually just looked up the wheel of emotions where they break down the six core emotions into all the sub emotions and then it splits up from there.
- I looked at this chart and looked at the words and I've only used a handful of those words.
- So for me, the first step was learning the vocabulary.
- The journaling that I do has helped me reflect on those things.
Thoughts on Breathing
- Breathing is not consciously part of my mindfulness practice.
