About the episode
Corey said that emotions are signposts, and humans have an emotional reaction to them. But to surpass negative emotions, whether fear, anger, etc., one should practice strong mindfulness. This will help you deal with those emotions, and this practice will make it easier for you to accept unpleasant thoughts.
Additionally, by practicing mindfulness, you can learn to accept uncertainty and become more aware of what is happening, including your feelings and responses. Corey reiterated that it’s the most important thing since it carries three good things: a sense of relaxation, clarity, and a spillover effect.
It’s normal to experience negative emotions like frustration, sadness, fear, and anger. They are an essential part of life. Learning to cope with those emotions and practicing mindfulness is the key to well-being.
