Lots of people either think they can’t meditate or it is a waste of time. This blog post starts with an Emotional Fitness Poster Coach briefly describing the One Minute Meditation; then, it links you to a longer meditation video.
Jon Kabat-Zinn remains a leader in the meditation movement. This You Tube is his introduction to meditation. It takes about fifteen minutes but if you have trouble creating calm, this might help. Watching it puts me to sleep.
If you are having trouble soothing or calming yourself, my newest eBook is out and offers an Emotional Fitness Self-Soothing course.
Overwhelmed with postings, mine and other people’s, one way to cut back is to subscribe to my newsletter.

If you have received this post more than once, blame my dygraphia. In my poster coach for this post, Breath and breathe confusion passed spell check to my dismay when I finally caught up with the error. Bad enough to have mistakes in the body of a post, but in the poster coach – arghhhh. Know my loyal readers will forgive me. Thank you all for your patience.
As usual for all you do to support me and others, thank you.
The first and most important: Emotional Fitness Training is a self-help and coaching program. It is not therapy. Nor does it replace therapy when therapy is needed. If the exercises and support provided here do not help you gain control of negative feelings, more may be needed. Support groups, coaching, and therapy are other paths to emotional fitness.
Anyone with suicidal thoughts, thoughts of harming other people, or who enage in harmfur or dangerous out-of-control behaviors needs to get professional help. Anyone with serious suicidal or homicidal plans need an immediate psychiatric evaluation. Call a suicide hot line if you are unsure of where or how to get help. Suicidal hotlines USA. Lfe can be better.
The second: I have dysgraphia, a learning disability that peppers my writing with mis-spelling and punctuation errors. All my books are professionally edited. Not so my blog post. Although I use all the grammar and spelling checks, mistakes slip by. If they bother you, seek another source of support for life’s less savory moments. Life is to short to let problems you can avoid irate you.
