Students who have normal intelligence can, on an average, score around sixty per cent marks. If they are not able to score that, it may be due to problems in their cognition, emotional management or study behaviour.
If the student learns to make use of his/her memory, concentration, learning and calculation abilities in a faulty manner, then he/she is likely to have difficulties with learning.
Also, if the student does not develop good learning behaviour it can adversely affect his/her studies. Example: taking frequent breaks, passive learning, sitting to study without an objective in mind, easily getting distracted, poor ability to perform responsibilities etc.
Are you unhappy and is it due to the following emotions:
• Negative Emotions: Anger: fury, outrage, resentment, wrath, exasperation, indignation, vexation, acrimony, animosity, annoyance, irritability, hostility, hatred and violence.
• Sadness: grief, sorrow, cheerlessness, gloom, melancholy, self-pity, loneliness, dejection, despair and severe depression
• Fear: anxiety, apprehension, nervousness, concern, consternation, misgiving, wariness, qualm, edginess, dread, fright, terror, phobia and panic
• Disgust: contempt, disdain, scorn, abhorrence, aversion, distaste and revulsion
• Shame: guilt, embarrassment, chagrin, remorse, humiliation, regret, mortification, and contrition
Emotions are triggered by real life situations and thoughts. If someone experiences mostly negative emotional experiences in his/her life, it may be due to poor emotional management.
Thinking of negative experience can be developed by habit, but it then becomes one's life, leading to failures and difficulties with others.
Emotional Management is a unique programme developed, through many years of experience by the therapist, to help people manage their emotions in a constructive manner and thereby improve their quality of life.
No one suffers more than the one who gets angry, as there will always be regret and sadness for their expressions of anger. Anger can be very destructive to the person who has it and also those against whom it is expressed. Verbal or physical expression of anger can result in breaking up of relationships, poor peer relationship, breaking up of marriage, breaking up of family and can even lead to suicide or homicide.
Anger is basically a survival instinct - if experienced in day to day situations, it can adversely affect the functioning of the person. Anger is ‘strength’ in a life threatening situation; however it becomes a ‘weakness’ when expressed in day to day interactions.
Anger management comprises of many real life exercises; mind exercises on interpretations of events, voluntary exposure to anger provoking situations etc.
