Follow your heart:
Emotions are a powerful navigational tool that can aid you to make better decisions under challenging circumstances. While strong negative emotions like anger and grief may feel overwhelming, your inner life is a valuable source of information. If you can learn to analyze your emotions without feeling overwhelmed, you’ll cultivate emotional agility that will make you more successful, flexible, and happy.
Negative emotions like fear serve a vital function. Strong emotions often contain messages about your life and the need for change. For example, chronic frustration with a romantic partner could signal that it’s time for the relationship to evolve. If you repress those negative emotions, you’ll miss the message. But if you can undertake a more dispassionate review, examining the emotion as a response to the outside world, you’re likely to learn something.
Consider stress, a commonly misunderstood emotion. Many people view stress as an enemy that must be defeated. This attitude only worsens the emotional burden of stress. Instead, you should understand stress as an indicator. Sometimes stress signals that you need to slow down. Other times, stress can be a motivational tool that helps you push through to the end of a project. If you can decipher what your stress is trying to tell you, it will become easier to manage the emotion. (So we saw emotions definition in a much comprehensive way)
A lack of sleep can be dangerous:
You probably know that not getting eight hours’ sleep every night can damage your long-term health outlook. But sleep deprivation also puts you at risk for microsleep events: brief, involuntary lapses in attention that can be extremely hazardous.
Microsleep carries a clear risk for drivers, but even people who seldom drive or operate heavy machinery can suffer consequences. At work, a microsleep event might make you miss important details during routine tasks. For people who work in dangerous environments, a lapse in attention due to microsleep can result in a near-miss accident or work injury. For people who work in finance and accounting, missing detail can cost the company or a client a thousand or millions of dollars. And parents and other caretakers could even put the lives of children at risk by losing sight of them during microsleep events.
Pills, caffeine, and other chemical influences can only go so far to bridge a serious sleep deficit. Instead, try making environmental changes that will help you get more sleep, such as removing distractions and artificial light from your bedroom.
