The art of balance requires us to be okay with the inner turmoil, and willing to go inside the storm.
When we resist or suppress an emotion, it grows inside us, but if we stay with our emotions and let them dance, it flows out of our system.
MORE IDEAS FROM The ABCs of Emotions - Mindful
When we dig deeper and feel the intensity of the emotion, observing our body sensations, we need to gauge the intensity and take care of ourselves by stepping back and moving away from entertaining the emotion if it heats up above boiling point.
We can make use of our friends, family, online resources and healthy habits to manage our intense emotions.
Support can also mean self-compassion, meditation, patience, mindfulness and breathing exercises.
Simply be aware of your current state of mind, the feeling you are experiencing right now.
Then label that emotion, becoming a witness to it. Labelling detaches the emotion from us, and we begin to see it as a separate entity, no longer identifying with it, or being at its mercy.
An individual's motivational intensity is how strongly they are compelled in approaching or avoiding certain things.
It is an important variable that affects the scope of attention because an individual can experience "pleasantness" and have low motivational states - they're not really determined to pursue anything; however, those who have "desire" have higher motivational states thus are more focused on completing a specific goal.
