Tips on dealing with your emotions:

  • Learn to express you feelings in appropriate ways. It’s important to let people close to you know when something is bothering you. Keeping feelings of sadness or anger inside takes extra energy and can cause problems in your relationships and at work or school.
  • Think before you act. Emotions can be powerful. But before you get carried away by your emotions and say or do something you might regret, give yourself time to think.
  • Take care of your physical health. Your physical health can affect your emotional health. Take care of your body by exercising regularly, eating healthy meals and getting enough sleep. Don’t abuse drugs or alcohol.

To avoid problems first notice your emotions and reactions and try to understand them. Learning how to sort out the causes of sadness, frustration and anger in your life can help you better manage your emotional health.

There are many ways emotional problems can be treated. Counseling, support groups and medicines can help people who have emotional problems or mental illness. If you have an emotional problem, talk to your family doctor. He or she can help you find the right type of treatment.
