Mindfulness meditation isn't simply about putting aside 10 or 20 minutes a day to meditate and then being unmindful in the rest of your life...
It's a practice that we are training in, but which we want to bring into all moments of our life.
Today, see if once you have tried out the thought labelling meditation, you can notice when you are getting lost in thoughts throughout the day, and label those moments with the silent "thinking, thinking" mental note, as you practised in the meditation.
As you practice noticing where your attention is throughout the day, you will be strengthening your capacity to stay in the present moment and not get lost in worry and unhelpful thought loops.
