You know there is a lot of rubbish talked about emotion. Among the blokes mainly who seem to believe that it’s a ‘girly’ thing and not for the lads! Well here’s the thing: your emotions so affect the way you are and my advice would be to ‘get emotional’.
The guys seem to think that it’s all about sitting with a box of tissues through a weepy movie, but no, although if that’s what makes you happy in the long run then by all means indulge!
The thing is that your emotions are important to recognise and understand for they affect your well being and that is the most important aspect of happiness, and let’s face it that’s what life is all about, or it should be! Sadly we tend not to appreciate that happiness is ours for the accepting.
No, not taking but accepting! You see your emotions dictate your mood. If you let something or someone get under your skin, in a bad way, how does that make you feel? It could be the way your bus to work is always late that puts you in a bad spot with your boss. You arrive in a bad mood and full of negative emotion, trying to explain it was not your fault. Wrong! Get the earlier bus and get in his good books and then how do you feel? Better still how does he feel? Maybe you will get the rise he promised!
You see if you look carefully and deeply into your feelings about every aspect of your life you can fix most of it by a simple change in you, because it is only you that can change anything for the better. You will immediately be filled with positive and happy emotions. Your Well-being index will go off the scale.
How does that make you feel?
Feeling better about just one thing in your life will allow your health to improve and your positive attitude will show in your work and in your relationships. How would you feel if you turned everything round for the better? You see the way things can change in your life? But it’s only you that can make it happen. As I said before get emotional and begin to feel the Feel Good Factor.
You can do this is so many ways: Make a list of all the things you are grateful for, adding to the list every day. Then write down all the times you were really happy and remember those emotions. Make a list of all the things you want like having enough money, having good health, being in a good relationship etc.
Don’t think about the negative stuff like the opposite to those lists but concentrate only on the things that make you feel good, healthy, happy and positive. Remembering always that you deserve to be happy and full of the Feel Good Factor.
