"Emotional Agility" by Susan David - Highly recommended.
If you are trying to find more fulfilment in your life, you need to develop your emotional agility - the ability to put distance between yourself and your negative emotional patterns. This gives you the space to examine them and the room to find constructive solutions for your problems.
The human brain can create distorted stories based on lived experience.
Pretending we are happy gets us nowhere - and negative emotions can have an upside.
Start showing up for your emotions by using self-compassion.
You can step out of destructive emotions by practising mindfulness.
It may be difficult making decisions that are truly your own, but it's important to take time to do so.
You can move on in your emotional life by improving your availability for emotional bonding.
Stay at the top of your game by making sure you're challenged and stimulated - but within reason.
When we are not emotionally agile, we get stuck. At that point, we should take steps to free ourselves.
