It is all about how you perceive and use your excess of emotional energy.
There are times in clients lives when they are so harried and overwhelmed by circumstances that they simply lose it!
Yes, it is not very pretty, they have felt futility, exasperation, had tantrums, verbal blowups and tears.
In those verbal blowups or meltdowns, things are said, impulsive decisions are made, all to be regretted later.
I have coached my clients to recognize that these events should never get that far.
One client resolved that, when he had symptoms of a pending meltdown appear, he did want many electric companies do during periods of high energy demand.
They do into a brownout mode!
He took his intense energy level down a notch or two!
He realized he was just one person and there were limits to what he could do. it was just not possible to be everywhere and solve every problem. His best will have to suffice.
He chose to respond and not react, this acceptance not only was a tremendous relief but it allowed him to carry on without over loading his mental and physical circuits. He also prevented getting physically sick and shutting down altogether.
In Life Coaching there are many solutions to stressful meltdown situations.
