Happiness, reacting and emotional triggers
The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. ~ Charles L. Morgan
It’s happened to all of us, you’re driving to work, you’re late and trying to hurry when the idiot on the cell phone, paying no attention cuts you off and you spill your coffee. Immediately your yelling, on the horn and flipping him off. Afterward you begin to the think of the consequences, he could have been nuts, could have been carrying a gun. Of course you’re also wired out for the next ten minutes from the adrenaline pumping through your system. None of it feels good at all.
Now for most of us this doesn’t happen every time you get cut off, hopefully it’s only when you’re extra stressed out and having a bad day. Regardless, it’s not a good thing and there is a benefit to keeping things on an even keel. So how do you do it, first of all it’s important to know what your emotional triggers are and finding ways to deal with them.
Searching on the web I found a great piece on this topic and figured I would pass it on:
Have a happy day my friends.
