Meditation Reduces Guilt Feeling
A study by the University of Washington has shown that meditation can reduce feelings of guilt, thus limiting reactions like generosity that are important to human relationships. Negative emotions may not be pleasant but can help navigate social situations and maintain relationships. When people feel guilty, it tends to make them focus outward, on other people, which can promote reparative actions. Meditating for short spells with phone apps can make people feel better, like popping an aspirin when they have a headache.
