Handling your emotions in times of great distress can be one of the most difficult obstacles one could face in life. When facing your emotions you must be able to recognize what will help you recover and what will cause you to go into a downward spiral. Emotions are complex and effect us all differently, these ideas are from my own rockbottom experience.
This one is very important. From my own experience, using drugs to cope with your problems only masks your emotions for a very short period of time. You may feel good in the moment but as soon as you become sober all of those negative emotions will come flowing even harder than before.
whether its a therapist, friend, or family member, having someone to talk to and letting out your emotions in a healthy way is crucial to handling your intense emotions.
writing 1-3 pages every morning allows you to reflect on your emotions and mental state at a later time. This allows you to recognize what causes your intense emotions and enables you to release some of those negative thoughts.
Complaining about your current situation or emotions only makes the negativity stronger. It keeps you from living in the now.
Distracting yourself in a positive way allows your brain to use more power focusing on the distraction rather than focusing on your emotions. Putting your energy into more positive activities will yield more positive results than focusing on the negative.
Suppressing your emotions only makes them stronger and more intense. You're essentially a tea kettle ready to explode at any moment. Its not healthy for you or others around you. Instead, try distracting yourself by being around friends, family, or doing something you enjoy.
Remembering your morales and core values allows you to remember who you are. Who we're you before your intense emotions? This will force you to reboot and come out a better version of yourself.

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.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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!
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.
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.
