i read in brene brown's book that part of mindfulness is not over exaggerating your emotions. this is something i do all the time and something i need to work on. i tried it last night when i got depressed about my body and not being able to exercise. right away i went into panic mode, thinking how i was going to gain all kinds of weight and thinking that my body was so disgusting, but then i had to remind myself that i was exaggerating everything and that i was going to be okay. i reminded myself that my body size doesn't equal my worth. i need to tone down my emotions (yes, i can be quite the drama queen at times!) because i tend to get carried away and caught up in them, when in reality things arn't as bad as i think.
