  1. Celebrate your successes. Feel happy and express your happiness.
  2. Create a future scenario. Predict how you would feel. Choose to feel in a different way.
  3. Don’t be afraid of feedback. Don’t react impulsively and defensively. Just say, “Thank you,” and take time to think about it later.
  4. Increase your vocabulary of emotion words. Label your feelings accurately.
  5. Observe and imitate positive people. Replicate their behaviors in handling adverse situations.
  6. Settle for “good-enough” instead of perfection. Stop criticizing yourself for not being the best all the time.
  7. When someone is feeling an intense emotion, demonstrate empathy by sharing your experiences in similar situations
