Self-Regulation and Therapeutic Techniques in the Form of Meditation
For this discussion post, you will be trying out self-regulation and therapeutic techniques in the form of meditation. These are commonly used techniques that are trained over time in cognitive behavioral therapy. Go to the mindfulness meditations on this UCLA webpage. (https://www.uclahealth.org/marc/body.cfm?id=22&iirf_redirect=1) They are all free to listen to at home. The meditations vary in length from 3-13 minutes. Listen to TWO of these meditations and answer the questions below for EACH of the meditations. Which meditations did you listen to? Briefly describe it. What were your impressions of the meditations? a) For example, was it easy or hard to concentrate? Did you feel more or less relaxed afterward (or the same as before)? Was it hard to relax? Did it becomes easier to do the meditations over time? b) Which meditation did you like more? Why? Do you think that meditation is a viable option for you in the future? Why or why not?
