30 minute guided meditations
Top tips for dealing with unreasonable people
5 sessions with Jeff Simm
Ever had one of those days when everybody else has one ambition – to get seriously on your nerves? Or maybe it’s nearly every day when certain people seem bent on making your life unpleasant? If not, you are fortunate indeed.
But we can make ourselves fortunate. That is this week’s meditation challenge.
We can’t get rid of everybody. Or often even just one person. We can’t make them disappear physically but we can reduce our own ability to get annoyed or upset.
We can eliminate their negative impact on our lives.
If we don’t like someone, we can change our mind. It’s much easier.
How? In five step-by-step meditations.
Meditation 1. Don’t mistake your own feelings for reality
Meditation 2. Difficult people are just confused good people being difficult
Meditation 3. Don’t box yourself in
Meditation 4. We have more in common than we think
Meditation 5. Stop your mind picking fights it can’t win
