When I find that Im feeling over emotional, my cup runeth over.... I always try to remember to suck a resue remedy passtile(www.rescueremedy.co.uk) or 2, it really does help to settle my nerves down and its a natural rememdy as opposed to anything from the pharmaceutical companies. Sometime just putting myself to bed to have a power nap can help to lift my spirits. Mind you when I feel really down the last thing I want to do is talk to anyone thou I do have a great life line on the other side of the country for when Im truely in strife and I can ring and be "put back together" especially when I can get stuck in my emotional body. I hope that helps.
I try to take some time alone and do things that I love, self-nurturing to make me feel better. This could be anything from reading, a hot bath, to taking a short trip on my own and reconnecting with my inner self. That sounds a bit like hippie mumbo jumbo, but it works for me!
lie down on my bed and stare at a poster on the celling and maybe go to sleep for a while:-/
turn-off the world, go within, and meditate...
true meditation is not thinking...it involves transcending thought entirely and existing in a "field" of Being or potential...in this place true healing begins...mind, body and spirit....
nope...try TM...transcendal meditation...good luck, my friend!
Sleeping helps me because when I wake up there's this fraction of a second where my brain is dis-oriented and I have no recollection of any problems and am just happy to fresh and rejuvenated.
Nooo, Many emotional vampires out there. Its like going through withdrawal. Instead of drinking I choose to sleep it off. :)
A Double Gin and tonic does the trick.
That is OK as well.
I tell people to sort their own stuff out in their heads,i get tired of the whinging.
I'm not that bad really,but thanks.
it depends what emotion has drained me
that kind of perfect storm often leads to suicide - or worse
don't worry, you're not there yet, i can tell by your answers
and the fact that you're engaging with everyone
it does help
Find a quiet place to withdraw too to be alone for a time..
It does for me. Plus it prevents me from saying or doing something unwise. In situations where you’re emotionally drained your judgement and self-control can be undermined. You don't want to do or say something you don't really mean and have to live with the results of that in your relationship.
True. In the end people have to assess the situation and do what they think is best. There is no one answer for all situations.
