Managing Emotions During a Career Change and Job Search, Part 1

How can you manage your emotions while changing your career or looking for a job? To answer this practical and wise question, let’s first define what feelings are. Emotions, also referred to as feelings, are the energy released in your body in response to perceived events, that is, to data received through your five senses.

To build your skill in managing your emotions during your current or next career transition:

1.) Practice naming your feelings. There is great power in simply naming your feelings when you are experiencing them. Check in with yourself several times a day and label your feelings in a diary or journal. Learn to recognize the subtle differences between similar feelings. Choose carefully how you name what you feel: word choice creates reality!

2.) Allow yourself to feel what you feel. Resisting the feelings keeps you stuck in them. Why not do something as drastic as feeling them? Let the feelings wash over you and run through you with infinitely more kindness. Feeling your feelings is always easier than resisting them, because feelings grow in proportion to our resistance to them.

3.) Express what you feel. Unexpressed feelings are like poison trapped in the body. You don’t really want to do it yourself, do you? Let them out! The key here is security and convenience. Find safe and mature ways to express your feelings to yourself and to those around you.

4.) Act on your feelings. Again, safety and fit are key. Emotions are messengers from your inner reality that push you to take action. Figure out what each emotion wants you to do, and then do it safely. Don’t be late or your emotions will affect you.

5.) magazine. Journal of thoughts, emotions, dreams and dialogues. Write letters that you will not send. Spin your guts to find the truth within.

6.) Practice. Physical activity is a great way to reduce stress and a safe way to channel your feelings into action. Whether it’s walking or swimming, bike riding or running, aerobics or muscle building, it will help you channel your stress constructively into a healthy mind and body. start slow; Be consistent!

7.) Talk to someone who is safe. call a friend or family member; Find a counselor; try a spiritual coach or director; Meet with a pastor, pastor or rabbi…but call nobody! You don’t have to bear your burdens alone unless you choose to…and why would you choose that?

8.) Use art to express yourself. Dye your panic. Draw your dreams. Write poetry to express the indescribable inside you. Both verbal and non-verbal art forms can help you release what shouldn’t be trapped inside of you.

9.) Use music to match your mood. You can use music to match your mood and thus express it, or you can use music to change your mood when doing so is crucial. So if you’re feeling down and need to turn up the volume, try some sexy rock or latin music. If you’re hyper and need the cool and center, try baroque, new age, or soft jazz selections. Music can be an especially powerful way to help yourself relax and fall asleep or pick up on your day.

10.) Pray or meditate on your feelings. Both prayer and meditation are powerful ways to feel and express your feelings. Practice one, the other, or both daily.
