   Humans are emotional, accept it!
  From being in crazy love to doing
  crazy over rage and anger or just
  not feeling like doing anything.

  Knowing now to use our emotions
  or keep them under control to not
  hurt ourselves is important.

  Here are some ideas on emotions.

        Burned Out 
Burned Out at the Job  |  Wall Street Journal [Video 6:09]                                                               02/28/2017
The problem appears to be worsening, resulting in steep turnover and
health costs.  
Burnout on the job is on the rise, to the point where
companies have farmed out their workers' well-being to employee
assistance programs, where stress and anxiety are cited in 70% of
incoming calls. Dr. Alden Cass, a clinical psychologist who treats
patients in high-stress jobs, discusses the causes and remedies of
burnout on Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero.


How to Recover from Disappointment  |  Linkedin, Scott Ginsberg                               02/14/2017
As I learned from my guitar teacher, everybody breaks strings, but being
an artist is about how quickly you return to the music.  
If a string breaks
and you suddenly lose your balance and scream out loud and smash your
guitar to the ground and cut the concert short by twenty minutes, you lost. 
Because you allowed the moment to be bigger than you. 

 Emotional Resilient 

Want to Be Emotionally Resilient? Science Says Do This  |  Inc., By Minda Zetlin
                   Do you worry a lot? Sometimes over things you absolutely can't control,
                   so that worrying about them serves no practical purpose? Do you think
                   you worry too much? Do you worry that all this worrying may not be
                   good for you?


How to Beat Loneliness  |  TED Article                                                                                          00/00/2015
Loneliness is a subjective feeling. You may be surrounded by other
people, friends, family, workmates — yet still feel emotionally or
socially disconnected from those around you. Other people are not
guaranteed to shield us against the raw emotional pain that
loneliness inflicts.
Why we all need to practice Emotional First Aid [17:24]  |  TED, Guy Winch          11/00/2014
We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So
don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional
pain: guilt, 
loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common
issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we
don’t have to. He makes a 
compelling case to practice emotional
hygiene — taking care of our 
emotions, our minds, with the same
diligence we take care of our bodies.


16 Ways to Create Your Own Happiness  |  HuffingtonPost, Dr Travis Bradberry          07/08/2017
Let’s face it, happiness and work do not tend to go hand in hand. A 2013 Gallup
study, which reported data from more than 180 million people, found that just
13% of us consider ourselves to be “happily engaged at work.”
Those who do rate themselves as happy are 36% more motivated, six times more
energized, and twice as productive as their unhappy counterparts.
The good news is that just 50% of happiness is influenced by genetics—the rest
is up to you.


Making Time for Mindfulness  |  Korn Ferry Institute, Daniel Goleman                                   08/22/2017
Executives' days are filled with difficult conversations, tough decisions, and
strategizing for growth and success in their endeavors. Under these inevitable
pressures, some leaders get stressed, while others can stay calm and focused in the moment.

When I tell executives that research shows that mindfulness meditation reduces
stress, some look skeptical. I can imagine they’re thinking, “Me? Meditate? You’ve
got to be kidding!
