Following on from my last post about emotions coming and going, today I want to talk about how we can look after ourselves when it comes to emotions.
- Be aware. That is key. Just being aware of how we feel. Start the day asking yourself how are you feeling?
- Balance. Find a balance though the things that you are doing in life so that you do not become overwhelmed to the point where there is no switching off.
- Find a good way to express emotions. This can be though the use of music, writing, drawing. Just don’t bottle them up.
- Find out what truly matters to you. By discovering what is important, it can help us to control our emotions through factoring in the time to do these things.
Emotions are part of the journey. If you can master your emotions, you will be able to be happier and live a more peaceful life.
