Let your emotions teach you something new about yourself. Our emotions are the feelings inside our minds that come and go. Sometimes we feel happy, and sometimes we feel sad; sometimes we feel angry, sometimes we're scared, and sometimes we're bored. Positive emotions—like joy and excitement—give us the energy we need to be creative and do amazing things. Negative feelings—like grief and anger—aren't all bad either. They can teach us to stay away from things that might hurt us. Scientists are exploring the connections between our emotions, our brains, and the rest of our bodies. They know that emotions are important. The more you learn about them, the more you'll be able to use them to help you manage your entire life better. Discover more within this book!
