Control Your Emotions with Mindfulness [Jeffrey Schwartz]

Control Your Emotions with Mindfulness [Jeffrey Schwartz]


[uplifting somber music]>>An effective way of
regulating or modulating emotions that is very consistent with
the way I’ve helped people treat obsessive-compulsive disorder, which is also very
consistent with mindfulness is using techniques that basically put labels on the emotion. So that you basically
learn how to identify using language based labels like “I’m feeling worried”,
“I’m feeling angry”, “I’m feeling agitated,”
and then place those labels in a constructive narrative that helps you control how intensely
the emotion affects you. I have developed the Four Step method, and I definitely developed
this Four Step method to help people with
obsessive-compulsive disorder, but in my book You Are Not
Your Brain, I’ve expanded this method considerably
to make it very applicable to any person. What we want to do is help
people construct true narratives that take their long term
goals and values into account. The way you do that is
getting in touch with what I call your Wise Advocate. Your Wise Advocate is really just another term for mindfulness. Honestly, the term
mindfulness became so overused in pop psychology that some of its meaning was kind of being washed
away the way things do happen when things end up in pop psychology. I thought it was time to try another term, so together with my
co-author, Rebecca Gladding, in the book You Are Not Your Brain, we came up with the term Wise Advocate as a proxy term for mindfulness. Wise Advocate is an inner
guy that you can talk with, you can inner dialogue,
create constructive narratives based on your capacity to
label the way you’re feeling. And in that process, control
your emotional responses and make them more adaptive. That’s a simple way of putting it, but it’s a simple way of putting
it that, hopefully you’ll be able to see, certainly
has the potential for having a greater spiritual, and even divine, significance. [bright somber music]
