Stop labeling everything

“It’s cold outside.”

“There is a bad pain in my lower back.”

No.

It’s not cold outside. “cold” is a label. There isn’t cold weather or warm weather. It just is.

There isn’t a bad pain in my lower back. The body just contains senses. “bad pain” is a label given to a sensation.

The problem with labeling everything is that there is an overwhelming temptation to turn life into a mental exercise rather than actually experiencing life — feeling and living the sensations and feelings.
