What it’s like to become emotional.

Can you manage your emotions?

Like being swept away by a strong undercurrent and brought out to a sea of turbulence—that’s what it’s like to become emotional. 

At best, you have been through it at some point in your life. 

But worse, you suppressed your feelings and turned your heart into stone.

Do you know that there is such a thing as emotional literacy? 

It is the art of learning and understanding your emotions.  
The objective of this psychological approach is to learn more about yourself. 

For every emotion—anger, jealousy, fear, joy—there is a corresponding physical reaction.

For example, a couple is having a heated argument over money or fidelity, and the effect on the body is the same—it gets physical. When strong feelings are involved, the signs are manifested and felt—high blood pressure, palpitations, hyperventilation, shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches and unexplained body pain. 

More often than not, the heart, brain and stomach are affected.
