Difficult emotions benefit from R.E.S.T:
Do you know what you need? What’s helpful? What’s not helpful?
How Do We R.E.S.T.?
(R)ecognize your specific emotions
Prioritize the most prominent one first. Is it… Anger? Sadness? Fear?
Give them judgement-free acceptance.
What healthy healing things make your emotions move though you. Music, smells, tastes, sensations, places, people, movements, activities. This is your first aid kit to soothe the pain/discomfort
Shift to a better state of being.
You are with the emotion (not avoiding it) but supporting and soothing it. The more you can flood your senses with feel good things, the quicker it passes.
