"Mental Labeling" Technique

A mindfulness and emotional regulation technique to reduce stress and develop clarity.

There's a difference between feeling

an emotion and becoming an emotion.

A lot of us are familiar with

what it's like to be consumed

by an uncomfortable experience.

One way to work with that is by

noting your emotions, AKA putting

a mental label on the emotion.

What does this look like?

Well, if there's an experience of

anger, instead of getting sucked

into the anger, lost in the anger,

you would observe it with presence

and then say, oh, this is anger.

If there's an experience of sadness,

you might say, this is sadness.

If there's an experience of impatience,

you might say, this is impatience.

This will help you transition from

being caught in an experience to

being aware of the experience.

Allowing you to respond

with intentionality rather

than react on autopilot.

It will also make the emotion

a little less overwhelming.

So it's great as a regrounding practice.

Try it out and take care.
