Are you in control of your emotions?
Chronic stress, illness, and even fluctuating hormones can all affect how well we handle daily problems. But one culprit of uncontrolled emotions that we often overlook is inadequate sleep. When we don't get enough rest, the emotional centers of our brain become more active. In fact, sleep-deprived people in a U.C. Berkeley study reacted 60% more dramatically to negative images than those who had plenty of sleep. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by minor troubles, first take a look at your sleeping habits.
Get some sleep AND some exercise!
