Calm Your Emotions by Nick Trenton
Emotion is not the enemy. We just need to decipher them and learn tools for regulation and resilience.
We all get knocked down and face hardships, but we always have the choice to get back up or not. What will your choice be?
Learn to train your emotions and tame your reactive brain.
Calm Your Emotions is the rare book that understands where you’ve been, the obstacles you’ve overcome, and what you need to make sure you are in full control of your life at all times. This is a stunningly detailed and insightful guide into our emotions, our triggers, and why we act against our own interests so frequently. The key to our emotions is NOT to just “think calm and meditate” or “be mindful and grateful.” This book avoids unhelpful platitudes and gives you real advice, borrowing from all fields, such as psychology, counseling, behavior science, evolutionary biology, and even Buddhism and Stoicism.
This book gives you the tools for emotional success and the daily happiness and calm you seek.
Don’t let your emotions dictate your decisions and life.
