About the Book

We all have emotions, yet how well do we understand them? Can we explain what they are? In The Art of Emotional Resilience, author Molly Dahl discusses what the emotions are, why we have them, and what we can do to enjoy more of the positive ones. She shares what we can do to understand, and change, the powerful negative emotions that sometimes run away with our logical thinking and good behavior. Based on the research and practices from the fields of positive psychology and emotion science, Dahl provides several tools and interactive exercises to guide you through an exploration of your emotional landscape. You’ll come to understand the differences between emotion and behavior, patterned reactions and considered responses, and a life of suffering versus a life of well-being. Dahl offers an in-depth look at emotional resilience, helping you to manage stress, quiet your mind, and live a fulfilling life.
