How Mindfulness Can Make You Emotionally Stronger

We all feel weak sometimes. Some of us feel it more often than not. But I want you to know that you are not weak. In fact, you are so incredibly strong. When you better understand your emotions, your triggers, and how your mind and body respond to certain situations, you are able to get out of it sooner. The more you lean into the fear, ignoring your emotions, and allowing the fear to take over, the longer it will take to move on.

Use your voice. Yes, you. You have a voice, no matter how big or small you feel. Stop letting fear diminish your voice. Even the tiniest things can help change the world. YES! You can help change the world, as long as you stop assuming your feelings don’t matter and that someone else will take care of it.

Here is my favorite quote on zero waste, that can be adapted into so many areas of life:

We don’t need a handful of people doing {zero waste} perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.

Anne Marie Bonneau

What does that mean? It means that if we want to create big change, trusting that a few people “in power” will do it for us is total b.s. Every single person has to take a stand for what they believe in if we want big change to happen.

When related to mindfulness, it also means that one single small emotion can erupt into so much more if we allow it. A good emotion, or a bad emotion. But just know that the stronger emotions like fear will overpower the weaker emotions like happiness. However, if you use mindfulness to see each emotion for what it is, in each moment, rather than letting it build up inside of you, you can feel peace and clarity, which is wear your strength becomes a reality.

Take a listen to Feel you Feelings, Part 2 on the podcast this week to tune in to the ways that little efforts can create big change. I get a little emotional myself in this episode talking about current events that are weighing us down. Just know that you have a voice. You have an internal voice and an external voice that make you who you are, and make your impact here on this world.
