Keeping a log or diary of your emotions is a good way to understand how you're really feeling, and in turn, manage how you feel
I think to manage so many emotions swirling around in you, you must try to identify them. Just be aware of what you are feeling. Each emotion might need to be dealt with in its unique way, so identifying the emotion can help you with that step.
Recognize them first and then try to work through them one by one, don't rush into things if you think you aren't ready! Take your time and you'll get there and things will start to feel clearer
Just Breath And Understand That Everything Will Be Okay No Matter What! Also Know That Life Is A HUGE RollerCoaster And We Just Got To Live It
By not identifying with them. When we feel lost within our emotional state in a stream of what seems to be conflicting emotions we forget that we are not the stream. Emotions are like waves on the surface of the ocean, we are not the waves but the ocean itself. It is great to feel emotions deeply and fully and even greater to express them, but only if we don't lose ourselves in them and forget that we are the oceans upon which they ripple. The good way to practice that is mindful meditation where you train yourself observe that waves while not act upon them in a safe environment of your own psyche
If you're feeling overwhelmed you have to take things one step at a time. Take a step back and take a deep breath because things will be okay even if it doesnt seem like it right now!
I find it helpful to write small poems or draw doodles based on certain emotions. Even assigning a color to a emotion helps.
You need to recognise and understand the emotions you have. If you can't figure things out by yourself, you can always talk to other people to understand it better. Aside from recognising and understanding, accepting the emotions also help you to be able to manage them.
Check out our Managing Emotions guide: https://www.7cups.com/help-managing-emotions/ Remember to breathe and that it's okay to ask for help
breathing is something that people use a lot, breath in 4 seconds, hold for 7 exhale for 8, this works for any kind of emotion
Try focusing on one at a time, if they're bad emotions try figuring out how to demolish the emotion.
It really is best to feel them first and then think about how to go about dealing with them, with the most suitable choice that you have.
It is not easy, but you are in complete control of your emotions. You must actively practice and have a strong desire to control and manage your emotions. The best way to do this is whenever you find yourself reacting to something. stop for a moment and consider the best way to handle the situation and which emotion would be most appropriate.
Honestly idk. Hope for the best. Emotions will be emotions. Just don't let them take control for the worst. You're better than that.
Take it one day at a time and realize that feeling are normal. Likewise, it is important to grow emotionally through self aware and reflection to understand and process feelings accordingly.
Variety is the spice of life . When you are angry punch a bag, take deep breaths. When sad, share your thoughts. When happy, do a little victory dance, smile. When overwhelmed, vent it.
By letting them be as they are. Giving them the right to just exist. By validating them and not judging them.
You can either run from them, or embrace them. The choice is up to you. Knowing which choice to pick can come naturally, but if it doesn't then trying both might be useful. There is a pool of emotions inside us that are constantly struggling. The best way to swim in that pool without drowning differs from person to person.
Nobody is perfect! That being said, our entire lives are full of emotions and how to master them. That's part of the beauty of life: the ups and downs of experience. :)
Label your emotions and take them on one at a time. Taking them all on at once can make your life very difficult.
Managing emotions is tough sometimes. The best thing you can do is take a deep breath, let it out slowly and think before you act.
Sometimes to help me manage emotions, I talk it out with a friend or family member. Sometimes it's easier to get another person's view so you can find the ability to manage all of them.
I suggest you think about each one of them and think about which is the most significant and fix it.
Focus on one at a time get through that one then focus on the next one, don't let yourself get overwhelmed :)
One of the best things you can do is to write down those emotions as you feel them so that you get them off your mind.
The idea is not how to manage them but how to go through them. There is a place and time for everything and has humans we definitely have emotions. So whenever you feel that u have to deal with these emotions. Give yourself some space and time to go through it.
One thing that resonates me when it comes to emotions is what I learned in meditation. We are not our emotions, your emotions are emotions. Acknowledge them and let them go. Try meditation for 5 minutes a day, as your mind becomes clear increasing your time will come naturally. As you acknowledge your emotions in meditation remember to return to your breath. This helps you stay mindful of the present. Emotions are demanding but as long as you acknowledge it, your inner self will not feel neglected. Emotions are just as important as daily excersise, it takes work but in the end it's worth it.
You're absolutely right, there are so many emotions that we experience! I advocate for experiencing our emotions as they come to us in waves. It can be uncomfortable; however, it could be more soothing to view emotions as messages. Feelings are the physical sensations we experience within our body, which often prompts us to cluster the feelings and name them as an emotion that we are experiencing. I recommend leaning into our emotions and being receptive to what they are meant to offer us; for instance, if my current emotion is anger, this might be a message for me to separate myself from a person or situation, to take time to reflect on myself and my physical sensations, to practice resiliency tools to help me calm down, etc. Emotions can absolutely be overwhelming. They aren't good or bad, they just are.
