Teens: Learn how to identify, regulate and release emotions

Leave a comment

• Put your emotions into a few words helps you respond with control rather than with an unconscious, habitual reaction. For example, say to yourself, “I’m feeling hurt” or “I’m feeling excluded.” From this non-judgmental starting point, you can begin to deal with the issue without it overwhelming you.

• Be prepared in advance to deal with routinely irritating situations—your emotional triggers—can help reduce their power over you.

• Once you’ve identified an emotion, take time to breathe in and out deeply. Exhaling an unwanted feeling helps deflate its power.

• If you’ve got a trusted friend or family member handy, share your experience of uncomfortable feelings with them.

• Work out your emotions via a brisk 30-minute walk or bike ride, pound a gym workout, or do whatever vigorous exercise you prefer. Exercise helps you regain balance.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
