As May's recognition of Mental Health Month comes to a close, Susan Lee, LCSW, our Comfort My People Coach, shares this video to offer tips on how to "Own Your Feelings"and find ways to better cope with challenging situations.
Don’t ignore how you’re feeling. Most of us have heard the term “bottling up your feelings” before. When we try to push feelings aside without addressing them, they build strength and make us more likely to “explode” at some point in the future. It may not always be appropriate to process your emotions at the very moment you are feeling them, but try to do so as soon as you can.
Learn more by downloading the Tools 2 Thrive handout on Owning Your Feelings(download the PDF). Be sure to see the lists on the second page of the handout to help you name those elusive feelings. You can also visit the Comfort My People webpage for more Mental Health Month resources.
