Being able to express what we’re feeling, or what we like or don’t like, can help us de-clutter our minds. 

There are no good or bad. emotions. Every emotion is important and essential. What makes it healthy or unhealthy is the intensity of the experience, and how it was expressed.

Ask for help

When you feel sad, challenged, frustrated, confused, angry, or just simply overwhelmed and unable to cope, speak to someone you trust – a spouse, friend, parent, sibling or relative.
