Looking for a Natural Way to Get Emotional Balance?
Emotional balance happens when we allow ourselves to feel whatever we are experiencing, particularly at the moment. It is best done without suppressing the feeling or being overwhelmed by it. Allowing ourselves to learn how to accept our feelings, without judgment, is a powerful tool. Often, just taking the time to stop and observe the feeling can be all that we are able to do. If it is too hard a task, then just observing can be OK for the present moment. Journaling about the emotion that surfaced, after the fact, can have an even more powerful impact.
