Practice as an Observer:
The next time your phone rings stay still and let it ring. Listen to it ring. Observe your reaction to the ringing.
- What is your first thought/reaction? Do you want to rush to it? Answer it or check caller id?
Carefully observe what’s going through your mind and body without taking action or becoming attached to the thoughts and feelings that are being triggered.
Imagine your thoughts and feelings are like clouds floating across the sky.
- Record as many of your thoughts and feelings on your worksheet for the week.
