You can learn some mindfulness meditation techniques for thinking about the feeling, identifying it, identifying the physical sensations and thoughts that you interpret as "frustrated" (or whatever), and sort of "stepping outside" of your thoughts and just viewing them, instead of being carried away by them.
There are a lot of different apps that can help you get started with meditation, with guided meditations. They are of varying quality – some aren't actually very good. One that I have liked is Waking Up.
I like this idea. Justin also said on Discord that he likes the Waking Up app.
I have two reservations:
- I find Sam Harris annoying on his podcast. Maybe I’ll be biased against him. I could try a different app or book or something. Or I could try Waking Up and see how it goes.
- I’ve tried meditation briefly a few times before and not gotten anything from it. Maybe I was doing a different kind. ingracke talks about thinking about feelings and stepping outside your thoughts, which seems like it could help people understand their feelings and thoughts better, which seems good. What I did before seemed like trying not to have any feelings or thoughts, which I didn’t see the point of.
I will give Waking Up a try. It’s got a free trial that covers some intro sessions and some audio essays.
