Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being

Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being | Thanks Attitude | Scoop.it

Feeling sad, mad, critical or otherwise awful? Surprise: negative emotions are essential for mental health.

 

Anger and sadness are an important part of life, and new research shows that experiencing and accepting such emotions are vital to our mental health. Attempting to suppress thoughts can backfire and even diminish our sense of contentment.

 

Instead of backing away from negative emotions, accept them. Acknowledge how you are feeling without rushing to change your emotional state. Many people find it helpful to breathe slowly and deeply while learning to tolerate strong feelings or to imagine the feelings as floating clouds, as a reminder that they will pass. I often tell my clients that a thought is just a thought and a feeling just a feeling, nothing more.

Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's insight:

The point is always the same... If we refuse something, this comes back even bigger! Whike if we accept we are made of different parts (emotions), without putting an excessive judgment on it, we will soon experience a real balance and a steady well-being!

We can be mindful of our negative emotions, just as we can our positive emotions. Nonjudgemental. Overtime, negative emotions may be experienced less.

A lot of insight in those so called negative emotions. When they are truly heard, they tend to integrate better, and become harmonious.
Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, August 7, 2013 11:34 PM

We learn so much about ourselves when we are aware and allow our negative emotions with a sense of curiousity. Learning to walk alongside instead of up against our negative emotion is important to our emotional health.

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads | Thanks Attitude | Scoop.it

The reason a compassionate lifestyle leads to greater psychological well-being may be explained by the fact that the act of giving appears to be as pleasurable, if not more so, as the act of receiving.

 

Another way in which a compassionate lifestyle may improve longevity is that it may serve as a buffer against stress.

 

Yet another reason compassion may boost our well-being is that it can help broaden our perspective beyond ourselves.

 

Finally, one additional way in which compassion may boost our well-being is by increasing a sense of connection to others.

 

Given the importance of compassion in our world today, and a growing body of evidence about the benefits of compassion for health and well-being, this field is bound to generate more interest and hopefully impact our community at large.

Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's insight:

Very interesting!!! And when you feel compassion through the heart, all of a sudden you understand that you are the creator of everything you experience!

 

And, as a consequence, you automatically Thank for what has allowed you to learn things you had to learn for your own evolution!!!
