Sitting with emotion is something a lot of people struggle with. Just allowing it to wash over you naturally, without turning to something that will smother it, numb it or block it out. Some use TV, gaming, alcohol or smoking. Others use retail therapy, gambling, social media, drugs or food. It can be revealing to just sit for as little as 20 minutes and observe what feelings pop up. Then notice which emotions are more difficult to sit with and produce urges to block. This might be where something needs working through.
