Stress Self-Help

Containing discomfort

Inner discomfort

In this practice, you offer your mind experiential evidence that enduring physical discomfort, including emotional discomfort, is safe, as long as it does not warrant medical attention.

While you may logically understand that experiencing discomfort poses no actual danger, your subconscious mind doesn’t always align with these logical conclusions without concrete evidence.

This practice seeks to provide tangible proof that it is safe to endure physical discomfort by encouraging you to persist in your resting state, even when faced with discomfort. The longer you stay still, focus on your breath, and maintain rest without experiencing harm, the more convincing the evidence becomes discomfort can be endured.
