Looking after our emotional wellness helps us get the very most out of life. When we feel emotionally stable, we feel more centered and connected to our intuition. We become more productive, better at making decisions, more present, and more fulfilled.
So now that we’ve covered eight big “don’ts,” let’s close with a few rapid-fire “do’s” to improve your emotional stability and wellbeing in general.
- Understand that the problem is not the problem – the problem is the incredible amount of over-thinking you’re doing with the problem.
- Realize that just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Just because it’s easy, doesn’t mean it’s worth your while. Do what’s right in life, not what’s easy.
- Know there’s a big difference between empty fatigue and gratifying exhaustion. Life is too short. Invest in the activities you deeply care about.
- Admit when you are wrong, and then embrace the fact that you are wiser now than you were before.
- Be comfortable to say “no” so your yeses carry more weight.
- Be so busy loving the people who love you that you don’t have time to worry about the few people who don’t like you for no good reason.
- Focus more on being interested than being interesting.
- Express gratitude and be thankful for the wealth you have – your family and friends are priceless, your time is gold, and your health is true wealth.
- Realize that if the grass looks greener on the other side, it’s time to stop staring… stop comparing… stop complaining… and start watering the grass you’re standing on.
- Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it.
- See transitions in life as the perfect opportunity to let go of one situation and embrace something even better coming your way.
It’s all about being at peace with yourself. If you haven’t mastered your emotions yet, it’s not too late. Every day we live, every day we have the opportunity to learn, to be stronger, to be the master of our emotions and not the other way round.
