When you're highly sensitive and someone says or does something hurtful, you feel a rush of emotions like a wave has cracked over your head. If you want to keep yourself from drowning in your emotions, you must learn to relax and stop fighting them.
In her newest book "Mindful Anger: A Pathway To Emotional Freedom," Dr. Andrea Brandt takes a refreshing new approach to handling anger. She urges readers to practice "mindfulness" -- the act of deliberately allowing physical sensations and emotions to surface, so they can be examined and released in a productive way. By incorporating mindfulness techniques in daily routines, readers will be able to process anger before it becomes unhealthy.
