Synopsis:

When you've decided you can't take it any more, it helps a great deal to know what it actually is. The process of writing about overwhelming emotions is a remarkably effective means of creating clarity and perspective in your life. Regular journal writers and diarists rely on their writing to help them keep their emotions in perspective; this book distills the best emotional benefits of regular personal writing into a series of engaging and easy-to-practice writing exercises.

Journaling can help balance and regulate your emotions. This book, a guided journal, combines the benefits of journaling practice with sound and practical advice. It gives you information, ideas, and active exercises that can help you feel more comfortable and directed in your emotional life.

While exploring these writing exercises, you’ll discover how to understand the processes of your own emotional system and how to think clearly about your feelings as they happen. As a result, you’ll experience a greater sense of flexibility within yourself and an ongoing confidence in how you live with your emotions.

Learn and Practice the Seven Essential Skills of Emotion Management:

  • Distance yourself from your emotions
  • Define what your emotions mean for you
  • Release blocked and conflicted feelings
  • Regain focus while experiencing overwhelming emotions
  • Use structure and organization to clarify feelings
  • Regroup after an emotional set back
  • Maintain your new skills and incorporate them into your life

Review: The practice of keeping a journal is increasingly being recommended by therapists and other health care professionals as a tool for gaining a better understanding of one’s life situations and corresponding emotions. In this book, Jacobs provides readers with a progressive, step-by-step guide for doing so easily and effectively. Journals, she writes, are "a checkpoint between your emotions and the world," that enable us to view our feelings from a distance, and to become clearer about the beliefs and attitudes that shape them.

Beginning with an explanation about the value of keeping a journal, Jacobs then guides readers through various processes to clarify our understanding of the subjective nature of emotions and how they are influenced by time and memory. Readers then learn how to define and evaluate their emotions, predict their emotional patterns, release emotions that no longer serve them, and refocus and organize their emotional life in ways that are more appropriate and fulfilling. Supported by over 30 hands-on exercises, this guide is an excellent resource for novice and seasoned journalists alike.--Larry Trivieri Jr.
