Challenge Myself: Day #136 Overcome With Emotion

Today is Day #136 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says when we are overwhelmed just scream into a pillow.

The book says,

If you are ever so overcome with emotion that you can't seem to hold it inside, scream into a pillow.
This technique releases the pent-up energy holding those negative feelings inside and works especially well for anger or grief.

Sob your sorrow into the pillow. Or, scream the words of anger that you can no longer hold in.
Empty out the feelings. If necessary, pound the pillow with your fists. You may need to get a bigger pillow or a new one if your beating it destroys it. It's a small price to pay for expressing rage.

Repeat the process until you know the emotion is spent and there's no longer a need to do anything. Then, when you peace is restored, do something to make yourself happy like listening to beautiful music or sipping your favorite tea.

Just For Today: When I am overcome with emotion I will search for the ways to restore peace.
