MONDAY MOTIVATION: Don’t Show Your Emotions!

Good morning,
Why should you ever hide your emotions? Well, the answer is quite simple. There are situations when you'd rather keep your thoughts and feelings hidden than display them in front of people who may ridicule, mock, make fun of, or even take advantage of your feelings.

There are plenty of other reasons why you might want to hide your emotions, and doing so certainly has its benefits, but there are certain situations where it may not be healthy to do so. In this article, we'll go over ways to hide your feelings, when and why you should hide emotions, and when and why you shouldn't.

We'll stay away from cliché advice like "control your temper," "laugh it out," and "stay calm." This article pinpoints the very acts and precise things you can do to hide and control your emotions. Don't let anyone know what you are thinking.

How to Hide Your Emotions

Take a deep breath.
Don't move your eyebrows.
Don't put up a fake smile.
Relax your face.
Don't support your head.
Stop fidgeting and refrain from constantly adjusting yourself.
Pause, think, and speak in a balanced tone.
Disassociate yourself from the situation.
Speak to yourself in your mind.

It is important to understand that not all feelings should be contained. In some situations, it is much healthier to let your emotions out and deal with them, rather than repress them.
