My name is Harsh Patel, 3rd year medical student at University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine with an interest to pursue Psychiatry!
I wanted to write this short post on how powerful our thoughts can be and a way to deal with difficult emotions.
The COVID-19 pandemic brings about many surprising emotions within us during these uncertain times. Anger, helplessness, despair, loneliness, agitation, you name it! We can choose to react to them reflexively or take a proactive approach and build our tool kit to better gain control over them.
I encourage you to explore your emotions through self-exploration. One of the ways I’ve found helpful to do so is through Meditation. I urge you to sit with your thoughts and delve into your spirit. Human life is beautiful, let your inner-self shine.
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, comment your thoughts on meditation, and share your experiences of dealing with difficult emotions. We all have something to learn from one another.
