Let's face it: life gives you plenty of reasons to get angry, sad, scared, and frustrated-and those feelings are okay. But sometimes it can feel like your emotions are taking over, spinning out of control with a mind of their own. To make matters worse, these overwhelming emotions might be interfering with school, causing trouble in your relationships, and preventing you from living a happier life.

In this book, you'll find new ways of managing your feelings so that you'll be ready to handle anything life sends your way.

This book offers easy techniques to help you: - Stay calm and mindful in difficult situations - Effectively manage out-of-control emotions - Reduce the pain of intense emotions - Get along with family and friends.
