Woot woot — you did it, friend! By completing this quiz, you’ve shown your commitment to balancing your emotions and living a blissful life. Based on your responses, it appears that your leading emotion is sadness. Now, let me share some insights into what that means for you.

Sometimes you wonder why small things upset you, and it doesn’t seem to make sense how others are always smiling. Left unchecked, you may find yourself pulling away from certain people, places, and things because you’re scared they’ll bring you down.

It’s important to recognize that your sadness can be a symptom of a deeper issue, such as depression. Your persistent feelings of sadness might indicate that there is an underlying condition affecting your emotional well-being.

But change is ALWAYS possible! It’s simply a matter of seeing an alternative and taking actionable steps towards it.

It’s essential to acknowledge that your sadness may be a manifestation of depression. By seeking support and professional guidance, you can gain a better understanding of your emotions and work towards managing your depression effectively.

“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” — Jonathan Safran Foer

How to Balance Your Emotions and Build a Healthier, Happier Life

1. Start with Awareness

Simply taking the time to notice how you’re feeling can help put your negative emotions into perspective. By doing this, you’ll create distance between your identity and whatever your experiencing. The next time you’re angry, sad, or fearful, close your eyes and lean into the feeling. Accept it so you can move on.

2. Take a Proactive Approach to Stress

Instead of waiting until you reach your breaking point to meditate, journal, or enjoy a long walk, take a proactive approach to managing your stress levels by making these relaxing activities part of your daily routine. Think you don’t have enough time? Try looking at it as an investment in your health and happiness.

3. Make Gratitude Your Attitude

Maybe you’ve heard this tip a couple times before, but trust me, it’s worth trying. Reflecting on the things you’re thankful for (no matter how big or small) instantly elevates your mood and can help you see the silver lining on just about anything. Consider starting a gratitude journal and writing in it throughout the day.
