Hello, nice work for posting.
It is a good choice to make with the mindfulness; but yes I’ve had the same thing happen.
This is a similar path I’ve experienced, you start to hone your focus to your feelings, thinking it will help, for which it does for the main part, but there’s definitely a limit on thinking about how you feel all the time.
Ive decided that directing my focus outwards on things that make other people smile or to make time for things I love is helpful. I’ve started cooking often for my family and playing music to reconnect to my true values.
If you have a thing you love to do it can be a helpful break during the day to make time for it.
Or the typical answer.. EXERCISE. Cliche- I know, but it does help. Especially when you can make it something that’s exciting to do. Hope this helps
