What NEVER to Do If You're In A Bad Mood:
Research says people who do this feel EVEN worse. Do this instead.
Sometimes we feel like lumpy dirt…
It’ll happen. And if any expert, doctor, or speaker tries to convince you otherwise – run for the hills and KEEP RUNNING
Because it’ll happen to us all, the question is how long do we stay there and how frequently does it happen.
There is an insidious type of feeling bad though.
It’s where you feel bad… about feeling bad.
Sad about feeling sad
Guilty about feeling guilty
Anxious about feeling anxious
It’s an emotional double-whammy.
Because we aren’t just feeling bad but judging ourselves in the process. And now research has finally started catching on to the consequences.
A study done by the University of California, published by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology took 1,300 adults in the Denver and San Francisco area to look at the connection between psychological health and accepting emotions.
Here’s what one of the researchers, Brett Ford, found:
“People who accept these emotions without
judging or trying to change them are able to
cope with their stress more successfully.”
I agree with Sir Ford.
It’s important first and foremost to be honest about the emotion you are feeling.
Not to tell yourself, I shouldn’t be feeling this way… This shouldn’t be a good deal…
So accept the emotion you are feeling.
It does NOT mean you have to stay there for long.
It does NOT mean you are settling.
It does NOT mean you are giving up.
It just means you are recognizing the feeling for what it is.
Then you can have power over it… then you can try to change it.

What Others Say About
Elite Life Coaching
"Without Kelan I would still be spinning my wheels and never getting anywhere. Failure isn’t even in my vocabulary anymore. I am going after things that I was afraid to even ask for before or thought were impossible to begin with. I would never have had the courage to follow my dream of entering a bikini competition if it weren’t for Kelan and his support. I know now that change is possible for me and I am becoming the confident person I’ve always wanted to be. I don’t feel “stuck” anymore.

"I have to admit I was very skeptical and wasn't sure anyone could help me. I decided that it was time to invest in myself. I needed direction on how to control my emotions and how to deal with them in a more positive way. I have always struggled with depression, anxiety, and just understanding how I feel in general. It was during these times I would turn to food for comfort. He has taught me different techniques on dealing with my emotions in a more positive and healthier way. It has been a very empowering!!!"

“I tried several plans over the years, but I always felt like I was missing someting. When I learned about Elite Life Coaching, a light bulb went on and I realized that maybe the real reason that I wasn't reaching my goals was because I didn't know how to form good habits or achieve the mentality that I needed. Kelan helped me to think about my habits and emotions from a different perspective and learn to form new, healthier habits and get control of my emotions”.
