Do you sometimes feel like you’re about to burst? From happiness, joy, love? Any form of overwhelming positive feeling? Do you find yourself confused, perplexed even? What should you be doing about it? Should you be doing something about it?
My answer is hell yes!
I sometimes wake up feeling ON TOP of the world. Other times I have so much love within myself that I can barely contain myself! And other times I feel like I can take on the world, g*ddammit! I feel so positive it hurts. What do I do about it? Well, read on to find out.
These are my top tips for how to deal with your happy, bouncy, vibrant emotions:
- Accept it
Acceptance is a big part of a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. Accept that you’re feeling great. I don’t want to hear any “oh, but I’m not good enough” or “I’m not worthy”. You are totally worth it! And you deserve to feel this good. This is a great sign that you’re starting to heal and on the road to recovery. Woo!
- Embrace it
Ride that positive emotional wave, baby! Society teaches us to subdue/manage our emotions but actually I don’t think that’s a very healthy thing to do at all. I’ve suppressed my emotions for
far too long and it just numbs all feelings in general, be they good or bad. So just sit back and enjoy!
- Amplify those positive vibes
Make the most of your happiness, joy or whatever great feeling that is coursing through your body. Do something kind and loving for yourself to increase those awesome feelings. Have a lovely cup of earl grey tea, go for a walk, read your favourite book, do your happy dance in the living room. Do whatever makes you happy! You can even make a little ritual out of it so that when you next feel this great (or greater!) it will be less of a shock to you and you can accept and embrace the feelings more easily and quickly.
- Get creative
We’re all born creative. It is such a cathartic and wonderful release once you tap into your inner creativity. Don’t worry what others will think – you’re doing this for yourself. Journal, draw,
paint. You will feel sooo great afterwards, I promise!
- Share with your nearest and dearest
Feeling the love for those in your life? Tell them! Feeling happy because of a great weekend away with your bestie? Tell them! Have you been offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Share it,
girlfriend! Sharing and celebrating is a natural human behaviour. Make the most of when great things are happening.
Give the above a go when you’re next fit to burst and let me know how you get on!
