‘This book will restore your sense of control – and make you feel less alone in the world’ ADAM GRANT

Big Feelings addresses anyone intimidated by oversized feelings they can’t predict or control, offering the tools to understand what’s really going on, find comfort and face the future with a sense of new-found agency. Weaving surprising science with personal stories and original illustrations, each chapter lays out strategies for turning big emotions into manageable ones and will help you understand:
– how to end the cycle of intrusive thoughts brought on by regret, and instead use this feeling as a compass for making decisions
– how to identify what’s behind your anger and communicate it productively, without putting people on the defensive
– how to spot the warning signs for burnout and take the necessary steps to balance your life
– why you might be suffering from perfectionism even if we feel far from perfect, and how to detach your self-worth from what you do
