When You Have Big Feelings

What is one to do when they have big feelings? You know those times when you feel overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude and power of your feelings. Those are times to breathe deep, exercise or even journal. Sharing your feelings with a trusted friend is a way to calm troubled feelings. We all need to know the ways that best fit us, that help us calm our anxious thoughts and disturbed emotions. Do you know how to soothe troubled feelings? If not, I encourage you to sit back and reflect on what best tends to settle your emotions down so you can think clearly.
