Do you intellectualize your emotions?

Learning to be aware of out feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively so they guide us to happiness is an essential lifetime skill. Many of us live so much in our heads that we tend to intellectualize our emotions.

We analyze, rationalize and choose to explain them away so quickly that we don’t actually experience them. Honour our emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course, you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.
