I have a very hard problem with mindfulness. One place I can do it very well is in the bath. I feel the water run over my hand, and focus all my attention on that.

When I'm distressed, I have a special problem with it because to be mindful and aware of the sensations in my body is a very uncomfortable sensation. Still, there is a difference between feeling them and observing them. A little gap in the experience.

I don't think I'm good at meditation. It usually slips into self hynosis and the opposite of mindfulness. My therapist hasn't had much luck teaching me the difference.

Is there anything that helps you practice mindfulness when you are already upset?
