Compassion Meditation

Schoolteachers who underwent an eight-week meditation program became less depressed, anxious, and stressed and felt more considerate of others’ feelings, according to a study in the journal Emotion. During the program, volunteers learned how to recognize and observe their emotions without judgment and learned how to recognize — and have compassion for — the emotions in other people.
 At the end of the eight weeks, participants showed less hostility and more understanding toward others and themselves.
A lot of our negativity in life comes from the judgments we put on ourselves and other people.
Learning how to observe our lives without criticizing them can put us on the road to a happier, less stressful life.
