How can emotions be kept under check?
A healthier way to cope with emotional distress is by keeping a check on your emotions. The expert lists down some of the ways in which one can feel more emotionally resilient and positive.
1. Move your body a bit daily
“Resorting to physical activities may help in the release of positive hormones like endorphin which is known to reduce feelings of stress or anxiety,” asserts Dr Jamati. Any form of daily physical workout gives a vent to your emotions and helps do away with any emotional build-up.
