Most of us try to either escape our emotions, or try to fix them. The healthier way to manage difficult feelings is to change your relationship with them.
Instead of treating painful emotions as enemies to be avoided or eliminated, you can learn to treat them as friends to be understood and accepted.
Most people have developed an unconscious habit of intellectualizing their emotions—using highly conceptual and vague language to talk about feelings rather than plain straightforward words.
When you acknowledge how you're feeling in plain, simple language, it helps reduce the intensity of the feeling and teaches your brain a valuable lesson: emotions aren't things to be hidden or covered up-they're a normal, if uncomfortable, part of the human experience.
Pain is the messenger. Pain is your body’s way of signaling that there is something very wrong with your wrist that needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Sadness is uncomfortable but not bad. It is a normal response to the loss of something valuable.
The next time you experience a difficult or painful emotion, try to remind yourself that just because it feels bad doesn’t mean it is bad.
Replace your instinct to be judgmental about how you're feeling with the habit of being curious about it.
If you can cultivate a habit of cultivating a curious about difficult feelings, rather than judgmental, not only will those feelings subside more quickly, you will also be fostering a much kinder, gentler relationship with your own mind.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
