Emotions can be managed and properly dealt with. Firstly, you must recognize your own emotions and know how they affect your thoughts and behaviour. This will help you watch out for early signs of negative emotions. You must always review your emotions in accordance with the word of God. Acknowledging the good aspects of life and giving thanks have a powerful impact on emotional well-being. In a research study, people who were asked to count their blessings felt happier, exercised more, had fewer physical complaints, and slept better than those who created lists of issues. It was realised that it is not joy that makes you grateful, but gratitude makes you joyful. Practise forgiveness.

When a negative event occurs, accept it fully and release your negative feelings surrounding the circumstance. Research shows that forgiveness helps us experience better mental, emotional, and physical health since it reduces hurt, anger and overthinking. Always recognise and understand how others will feel and consider their feelings before responding in situations (empathy). Try deep-breathing exercises as this helps slow your breathing and your heart rate. Practice the 10-second rule (if you feel your temper is rising, try and count to 10 to recompose yourself). Always seek clarification before reacting and never reply or make a decision when in a bad mood. Learn to channel your energy by exercising, listening to music, and smiling. Also, learn to compartmentalize yourself by not combining work matters and frustrations with family issues, academics, or social issues.

Apologize for any emotional outburst and focus on how to improve the situation. If you fear failing an exam, instead of sitting there and worrying, make time to study. It is also good to talk to people who can help you. Finally, let love lead you in everything you do.
