Wellness Wednesdays: Mental health tip – lovingkindness meditation
Counseling Services continues to provide resources on mental health strategies to encourage undergraduate students as keep going on this Virtual Salve journey. As remote learning continues, it’s easy to become stressed about friends, family and yourself as you navigate this time.
The video below is by Meghan Shea, licensed clinical social worker at Salve Regina. In this video, Shea guides you through a lovingkindness (or metta) meditation. A metta meditation uses words, images and feelings to evoke friendliness toward oneself and others. It can be used to recognize hidden emotions like anger, grief or sadness and to help you process and let go of these things for more compassion, mercy and lovingkindess for both yourself and others.
