Do not fight your emotions

Do not fight your emotions

Experiencing negative emotions is not a problem, in and of itself.

  • Although it is completely understandable that we might at times beat ourselves up for this predisposition, it is essential not to blame ourselves.
  • This does not mean that we do not take actions that will help us deal with difficult emotions. It only means learning to become more comfortable with having these emotionsallowing them to exist for the moment, instead of waging an exhausting and futile war against them.

Keeping the mind in the Now

People with higher levels of dispositional negativity often are quick to attend to negative stimuli in their environment and interpret things in a pessimistic style.

  • Become aware of them in the moment and then endeavor to replace them with more constructive responses.
  • One technique that could be employed is Mindfulness - paying attention to what is going on in our minds, our bodies, and the surrounding environment
  • The meta-awareness and the non-judgmental manner that characterize mindfulness are great tools for any habit change attempt in our lives.

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!
