A witty, warm, and wise guide that should bring relaxation to stressed-out people… A must-read.
In his fun and insightful latest, award-winning Joseph urges readers to embrace their crankiness and make the world a better place. Knowing how to effectively regulate emotions is something that can make a big difference when it comes to living a better life. With wit and perception, Joseph provides a thorough manual for enhancing emotional well-being. He argues that concentrating on being more open about one’s own crankiness and focusing on letting out the anger in positive ways not only allows us to channel our negative emotions but also serve as the first step to an enhanced emotional well-being. Joseph argues that people too often deny themselves a complete let-out through cowardice and the fear of upsetting others, but end up upsetting others anyways. Free of pretense, the book introduces numerous ways to help us recognize and cope with the feelings of anxiety, anger, and frustration. Joseph explains how to effectively regulate emotions by taking up such techniques as utilizing a team approach to crankiness, creating space for outpouring, and effective communication. Packed full of self-regulation strategies and practical advice, the book shows readers how they can find a balance and learn to feel just right. Amusing anecdotes and real-life stories illustrate management of crankiness in everyday life. Writing with humor, insight, and skill, Joseph’s entertaining manual becomes one largely about exploring the everyday struggles and effectively overcoming them. This is an essential read for anyone struggling with regulating emotions or interested in improving their emotional well-being.
