Noting Meditation – 20 Minutes
Noting is an exercise where by we observe what is happening in the present moment and “note” or label what we are noticing. This is very useful because many times we get caught up in our body or emotions or thinking and we automatically react instead of choosing to act.
When we NOTE what is going on, we see all our experiences as passing and this gives us some space to choose what we really want to do instead of compulsively reacting. Noting helps us see our experiences as just that; an experience. This allows us to see a difference between “us” and our “experiences”.
