When you start understanding and processing your emotions, you can work through them in a healthy and positive manner. This will help you gain more control over your mind and you will be less stressed, happier, and more relaxed.
Identify which emotion you are feeling.
Over the next two days, anytime you feel a negative emotion, identify which type it is: discomfort, fear, hurt, anger, frustration, disappointment, guilt, inadequacy, overwhelmingness, or loneliness.
Identify what you need to do to make it go away.
Why are you feeling that emotion in the first place? What do you need to do or change in order for the emotion to go away? Is your perception of the situation triggering the emotion, or do you need to take physical action?
Cultivate beliefs to make your negative feelings go away long-term.
For example, if you notice yourself feeling abandoned or lonely very often, remind yourself that you can never really be abandoned, as caring, loving people are always all around you.
