Commit to activities that are rhythmic and repetitive when you are processing super-charged emotions.
Consider a rocking chair, or a swing, or immersing yourself in your favorite music... you can do exercise or projects or notice your breathing... the options are endless, just find that activity that will get you out of your head and into experiencing the present moment.
Set aside 10 or 15 minutes and throw yourself into it completely.

Any activity can be a meditation if you get immersed in something other than your mind chatter. Yep. That's my definition.
All types of meditation focus us on something besides that ever-spinning hamster wheel of mostly repetitive, often destructive thoughts. We are addicted to our thinking!
When we observe our thoughts without engaging them, we can enter the stillness between the thoughts, and that's where the magic is folks.
I think 99 times and find nothing.I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.― Albert Einstein
