Never judge your feelings

It is human nature to label one’s feelings as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or as ‘positive’ or ‘negative’. By being judgmental about your feelings you tend to lose the ability to regard them and be mindful of them. By looking at the emotion just as what it is, will lend you an opportunity to apprehend it and find out what your mind has been trying to tell you.

You must question your opinions

Living in today’s era, it is easy to fall into an ‘opinion bubble’. This is a state of existence wherein your own opinions are continually reinforced by people sharing alike perspectives. It is suggested to take ample time to read the other side of the story and have your views tested. This will help you to be more open to new ideas.

Pay attention to your behavior patterns

While you are practicing your emotional awareness, you must consider observing your behavior too. Note the way you tend to act when you are undergoing certain feelings and the way that affects your daily life. Handling our emotions becomes effortless once we become more aware of the way we react to them.

London Bridge falling down was something that people at the time associated with weakness. But there is no evidence to substantiate the idea of immurement.
