Urges come in all shapes and forms. From substances to food to shopping online to letting our emotions overtake us. In this acceptance practice, we ride the waves of our urges without giving into them. Please read the disclaimer at the beginning of the video, and only partake in this practice if it is safe for you to do so. You are practicing at your own risk.
This meditation can help us distance ourselves from our thoughts, feelings, sensations, urges, or memories. The point is not to get rid of these, but to create some space so we can go on with our lives. This meditation is helpful for anxiety, depression, substance use, chronic pain, and other physical and mental health conditions.
