Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- It’s perfectly fine and normal to feel down sometimes. It’s what we do with and about our emotions that makes the difference. Redirect any negative emotions toward something positive and productive by using some of the techniques listed above. These practices will provide you comfort and help you find meaning through painful, stressful experiences.
- When it comes to managing your emotions and changing old habits, it’s less a matter of strength and resistance and more a matter of knowing yourself. Analyze your past surroundings, the people that were in your life, and the influences within your environment. If you find yourself feeling the same emotions and performing the same behaviors, change your environment. Consider how the people within that environment may have influenced your emotions and reactions in the past. Avoid putting yourself in situations that cultivate negative emotions and the habits you’re trying to break. You might recognize a change for the better in your emotions and behavior.
- Our attitudes are contagious. When interacting with someone who’s in a bad mood, be strong in character, compassionate and engage in active listening. Know that you have the power to manage your own emotions and maintain a positive attitude. In managing your own emotions, and reaching out to others with simple acts of kindness, you are able to maintain positivity and help others better manage their emotions.
- Stress caused by experiences and the emotions that arise within those unexpected moments, are minor compared to what we are capable of doing, especially if we are prepared to handle it. Prepare yourself by leading a healthy life. Daily exercise, a healthy diet, and a full night’s rest will make you strong enough to withstand stress and maintain a positive attitude and emotions. Give yourself the advantage and the opportunity to enjoy life and make the most of every moment!
The Insight: Emotions take on several different roles and have a number of different influences in our lives. They are powerful feelings that can easily overpower us in certain situations. Remember that many emotions are temporary, all emotions are changeable, and your emotions are not the only ones that matter. Never lose your cool. Take a step back and create a plan to best manage your emotions in every situation.
Have a wonderful weekend!
