Keys to Your Wellbeing I: Dealing With Feelings

Feelings often have a message for us. Grief tells us that we have lost something important to us once and for all. Jealousy speaks to which direction we would like to go. Disappointment tells us that something hasn't happened in line with our expectations. Irritation tells us that some of our needs hasn't been realized. Through a self-compassionate approach, we can try to accept and explore these feelings.

Read the article below to set the ground. Then, try listening to your difficult feelings. You can try the self-compassion excercise underneath to do this. Also, see Nyyti ry's tips for regulation of feelings and attend VOICE training with your team. Read more below!

Dealing with feelings: Toxic positivity

Excercise: Soften, soothe, allow!

Accepting and exploring our difficult feelings help us to identify our own needs. After identifying the needs, it is easier to correct our own activities or we can try to express our needs to others and then the likelihood of meeting needs increases. Facing and accepting negative feelings and working with them increases one's wellbeing in the long run. Take a good position and listen to this self-compassion excercise. Duration: 8 m 20 s.

The excercise is also in Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
