meditation for anger

It’s easy to get angry, isn’t it?

Especially when you’re tired, you’re hungry, and you’ve had one of those days

Anger can be a very destructive emotion if you let it get the better of you. If unmanaged, it can have detrimental effects on your health and well-being.

Other things such as your relationships, job performance, anxiety and depression, sleep pattern, even your sexual performance can all be negatively affected by anger.

Regular meditation practice helps you to become aware of your emotions without becoming attached to them. There are times though, that no matter how much you try, negativity gets the better of you.

Here’s a 2-minute meditation to guide you through those moments…
