10 Reasons Why an Emotional Partner Is Really Good for You

10 Reasons Why an Emotional Partner Is Really Good for You

As human beings, there is nothing more familiar than the experience of emotions. Life experiences can rely on the emotion a person feels during any given time. Happiness and similar positive emotions can lead to a good, productive day. Sadness, and similar negative emotions on the other hand can lead to lack of energy and unproductivity. It’s needless to say, emotions can have a significant impact on our well-being and state of mind.

If you thinks, it is difficult enough for a normal person to go through periods of feeling deep and uncontrollable emotions, then consider the possibility that some people go through these periods 24/7.

If you are an emotional person, or know someone who is, then this should make sense to you. Although characteristics vary from person to person, there is something a majority of emotional people have in common: According to Psych Central, most emotions in day-to-day life are experienced much more dramatically than the usual. Even situations that wouldn’t normally be emotional suddenly become a  big deal. Emotions can fluctuate several times in a short period of time, as drastically as laughing and crying within the hour.

Knowing the implications of being around an emotional person, some people may not have the tolerance for an emotional partner. Though they do have downfalls like any other normal person, it is worth remembering that there are also a lot of pros to outweigh the cons. Here are some reasons as to why having an emotional partner is seriously worth considering.

1. They have a unique view of the world.

Boring relationships are not for everyone. Since emotional people are generally affected by various stimuli differently to normal people, they have a deeper, more creative outlook on life according to an article from Create Your True Life. This can provide results ranging from more interesting conversations to different ways of decorating your house.

2. They hold greater sympathy for others.

Nothing is greater than knowing someone understands how you’re feeling. Especially when that person happens to be your significant other. Emotional people have the ability to feel what others are feeling, meaning something greatly affecting you will most likely affect them as well.

3. They usually put a lot of responsibility upon themselves.

We have all experienced moments wherein people deny responsibility associated with their actions. In a relationship, this kind of denial can lead to unnecessary arguments and weakens your basis of trust. An emotional partner knows when they are responsible for something, so yet another plus.

4. They pay great attention to details due to their sensitivity.

According to an article by Psych Central, emotional people are usually perfectionists. The results of this personality trait can vary from a very tidy household to a partner who actually remembers your birthday and who makes sure they don’t forget to buy anything from the shopping list.

5. They are more in touch with their inner emotions.

As a general rule, you can’t give something that you don’t have. So in a relationship, it is difficult to support a partner who is struggling with their inner emotions when you yourself are unfamiliar with your own mental struggles. An emotional partner is beneficial to those who may not be so comfortable with their emotional state.

6. They get the hidden meanings.

You don’t always have to verbally spout out your emotions just so your partner is aware of them. Emotional partners can pick up the subtle hints. No awkward emotion spillings or misunderstandings. Honestly, they understand without a word.

7. They have a good connection with others.

They do not have to be the most talkative people, but they will often have a good connection with their friends, partners, colleages and family members. This makes them good at working in groups and means that they probably connect in relationships really well, too.

8. They are very precise in their decision making process.

Decisions should not be made hastily. While it could take an emotional partner a bit longer than most people to make a decison, at least you know your partner’s decision was thought through.

9. They will cry when watching chick flicks as much as you do.

Being more emotionally reactive is a major factor in the lifes of highly emotional people, according to an article by Huffington PostMostly aimed at the ladies, the sensitivity of an emotional partner means that not only will they be more likely to watch chick flicks than a normal guy, but they will also probably feel the plot just as much as you do. No bribes needed!

10. They are highly conscientious people.

Rude people are not fun to be around, and you must be crazy thinking it’s not difficult to deal with a rude partner. The good news for people with emotional partners s that they generally have really good manners. They are self aware and know how they affect those around them. Needless to say, they wont be caught trash-talking the in-laws.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
