Techniques for Expressing Your Emotions

Finding the Courage to Express Your Feelings

Techniques for Expressing Your Emotions

Life is full of situations where it can be difficult to say what we really think but silence sometimes comes at a high cost.

In a recent article in the British newspaper The Guardian, a nurse reported that failing to express our true emotions is one of the most common deathbed regrets.

Read on to discover the major benefits of speaking your mind and constructive ways to get started.

Benefits of Expressing Your Emotions

  1. Lead a fuller life.Dare to take on difficult issues. You’ll learn more about yourself, your loved ones and the world around you. Taking on more challenges will help you discover your true potential.
  2. Become a more authentic Martial artist. On the off chance that you constantly smother your actual sentiments, you may get to be new to them yourself. Become more acquainted with the genuine you and acknowledge yourself for who you are
  3. Banish your fears. Fear and anxiety build up when we try to shelter ourselves from difficult truths rather than facing them directly. When you see yourself successfully negotiating a disagreement with your boss, you’ll feel more confident in your abilities.
  4. Improve your relationships.Clearing the air promptly can keep resentments from building up. Ask your spouse to share in more of the housework rather

5. Liberate others.Courage is contagious. Your willingness    to be direct and honest makes it easier for others to do the same.

Techniques for Expressing Your Emotions

  1. Clarify your intentions.Everyone benefits when we devote ourselves to promoting the common good. It beats worrying about being comfortable or universally popular.
  2. Consider the risks involved.There may still be situations in which you need to choose restraint. Maybe you have valid concerns about an office policy but know that your supervisor is unlikely to be receptive to suggestions.
  3. Take accountability for your own emotions.State your feelings in a way that avoids putting the blame on others. Recognize that your unpleasant feelings have more to do with your mindset rather than external events.
  4. Start out small.It’s okay to proceed gradually.Talk with your best friend about how her showing up late for appointments affects you. Soon you’ll be able to approach people who may be less directly concerned with your well being.
  5. Practice regularly.Like any skill, open communications improve the more you practice. Notice daily opportunities to speak up so you’ll be in shape when more difficult conflicts come along.
  6. Remain tactful. Even when you need to confront difficult truths, you can pick a setting and language that will make the message more palatable. If tempers are

  1. Respect other’s boundaries. Just because you’ve decided to become more forthright, other people may still have different priorities. Unless someone’s welfare is in serious danger, be sensitive to the topics they may prefer to leave untouched.
  2. Listen intentionally. On the other hand, you may find that others welcome the opportunity to be candid. Give people your full attention. Show that you’re attuned to their concerns. If you feel overwhelmed by what you’re hearing, ask for time to reflect before continuing the discussion.
  3. Share good news too. Sometimes we shy away from pleasant feelings as well as the unpleasant ones. Get in the habit of handing out more compliments. Let people know how their kind acts improve your life and how much you care about them.
  4. 10. Find the cause. What is the cause of the circumstance in your life? Sometimes, limiting beliefs can serve as warning signs that help you avoid danger. What can you learn from this so you avoid triggering a similar situation in the future?
  • If the cause of your situation is unclear, ask friends and family for their input. Others see your life from a different perspective, and their input can be valuable in determining the root of your difficulty.

If you want to live life to the fullest, get in touch with your true feelings and bring them out into the open. You’ll enrich your own experiences and empower those around you to do the same.

Simple Ways to Overcome Boredom

Everyone at one time or another has experienced some degree of boredom. Children are usually the quickest to say “I’m bored,” but as adults, we experience our share, too.

Don’t you sometimes wonder why you feel bored? It may be a feeling of laziness, exhaustion, or even a lack of mental stimulation.

Whatever the case may be, we all want to keep our mind and body at its peak. We also want to be an active player in our own lives. When we’re feeling bored, neither of these needs is being met.

However, with a bit of creativity, there’s no reason why you ever need to experience boredom!

Here are some simple suggestions to help you conquer boredom and liven things up:

Read. This sounds rather obvious, doesn’t it? Well, it is! But it’s often the simplest ideas that are the most powerful.

Reading is a wonderful activity for the mind that can transport you into another time, place or situation. With so many genres to choose from, reading can be most interesting and even intoxicating.

Boredom is something we allow and hold control over. By actively using our mind, boredom won’t be a concern again. Try expanding and cultivating your mind by taking a day trip to a museum, going to an art exhibit, or seeing a play.

If you’ve never been an avid reader, it’s possible that you simply haven’t found the right book. Experiment until you find the one that gets you hooked. You can also explore audio books and podcasts to keep your mind busy.

No one enjoys being bored, but thankfully there are countless ways to overcome boredom and get our mind and body active again. Use these tips to get you started, and enjoy a myriad of wonderful benefits in the process

Create the time to read. It might be 20 minutes before bed or during your lunch hour. We feel like we don’t have the time because we over-schedule our lives, watch too much TV, and spend too much time surfing the Internet. Let go of some of that stuff and read instead. Make reading a habit by doing it regularly.

When you’re reading, only read. This isn’t a time for one eye on the book and the other eye on the television set. If you’re going to get the most out of it, then really commit to what you’re doing. Just read during your reading time.

Avoid thinking that you must finish every book you start. We have to suffer through some things in our lives that are less than exciting, but your books don’t have to be one of those things

Hormone changes can cause your teen to shift moods quickly

Warning Signs Your Teenager is in Serious Trouble

Warning Signs Your Teenager is in Serious Trouble

Your teenager could be in serious trouble, but it’s not always easy to recognize it. Teenagers are masters at hiding their issues and emotions.

If you’re worried your teenager might be in trouble, consider these warning signs:

  1. Isolation from friends and family. If your teenager suddenly chooses to be isolated from friends and family, then you may want to ask questions.
  • An outgoing teen who suddenly becomes reclusive and avoids others may be hiding trouble. A sudden change in behavior can be a serious warning sign. If you notice this in your teen, it’s important to explore it.
  • Your teenager may be hiding in their room more often because they don’t want you to see them using drugs, alcohol, or other substances.
  1. Extreme mood swings. It’s normal for teenagers to have mood swings because of changing hormones. However, extreme mood swings that include aggression and violence are warning signs. The teenager may be experiencing serious health issues, drug issues, peer pressure, or other concerns.
  • Hormone changes can cause your teen to shift moods quickly. However, these mood swings shouldn’t be scary or overwhelming.
  1. Taking unusual risks. Teenagers want to push boundaries and explore their world. However, if your teen starts taking unusual risks that aren’t part of his or her typical behavior, be on the alert.
  • Extreme risk taking can be a warning sign your teenager is in trouble. The trouble can range from drug or alcohol abuse to serious peer pressure.
  1. Falling grades. If your straight-A student suddenly starts to get failing grades, it’s important to find out why.
  • A teenager who suddenly stops paying attention in class or stops doing homework may be in trouble. Teens may earn different grades throughout high school, but sudden and dramatic changes could be warning signs. Your teen may even drop out of school.
  1. Strange new friends. Did your teenager stop being friends with their old pals and join a new group? Are you concerned about the new friends and their influence on the teen?
  • New friends may be a sign of trouble if they’re pressuring your teen or offering drugs and alcohol. New friends may also be a sign that the teen is simply growing and changing. It’s important to carefully evaluate your teen’s closest friends.
  1. Sudden issues with memory. Teens may forget things on occasion, but teenagers who frequently forget everything may be in trouble. This could be a sign of drug and alcohol abuse. It can also be a sign of mental health issues and other physical health issues.
  1. Is your teen suddenly suspicious of everything and everyone around them? They may be suffering, but they’re not able to express it.
  • Paranoia and suspicion can be signs of mental health issues. They can also accompany drug and alcohol abuse.
  1. Destructive behavior. Destructive behavior can range from physically demolishing furniture at home to other issues such as hurting themselves.
  • If your teenager starts to hurt animals, family members, friends, or themselves, then it’s time to intervene. They may also try to destroy property and physical items.
  • It’s important to take action before the destructive behavior leads to arrests or hospitalizations. The teenager’s actions may even create permanent and lasting damage that hurts others.

Teenagers may try to hide the seriousness of their situation. However, if you learn the warning signs, then it’s easier to recognize that they’re struggling and help them.
