Emotional Flexibility

Emotional flexibility is about embracing the never-ending contradictions and cultivating your mind to hold everything at the same time.

Holding happiness, joy, and enthusiasm at the same time as anger, sadness and frustration provide us with resilience and a deeper understanding of life.

IDEAS

Validate your emotions
  1. Label the emotion. When you notice yourself feeling badly emotionally, simply describe what the emotion is that you’re feeling (sad, anxious, frustrated, etc.).
  2. Acknowledge the discomfort. Acknowledge that it’s okay to feel that way even emotionally if it feels uncomfortable or painful.
  3. Accept the emotion. Accept that the emotion is with you and that you can still proceed with life despite having that emotion.

Pretending you’re normal and trying to fit in with the innocents in your midst keeps you sad and negative.

Don't stigmatize your dissatisfaction or restlessness. Don't scold yourself for your feelings, but make more space for them. These sensations will lead you down a new path toward joy.
