Case Study

Marco and Sara had been dating for the past three years. One day, Sara noticed Marco looking at another woman when they were sitting outside a cafe. Sara felt her pulse and her thoughts begin to race. She thought to herself, “That cheating jerk!” Because both Marco and Sara had taken a meditation course recently and they had both been practicing mindfulness, Sara was able to pause and take note of her arousal. Instead of yelling at Marco for checking out another woman, Sara took deep breaths and allowed her anger to subside. She asked Marco if he thought the other girl was attractive. “Not as much as you are,” Marco replied, “But I think I was in a class in college with her.”
