Negative emotions aren't bad, nor are obstacles. Feelings bring us important signals and challenges allow us the opportunity to grow. However, when we spend a lot of time hovering right above "neutral," it doesn't take much to revisit old, familiar coping skills that didn't serve us well - and before we know it we're back in the negative. Healthy recovery includes the ability to experience a full range of experiences and emotions without sliding backward or becoming stuck. These tools expand the capacity to cope with negative events, enhance positive experiences and build the flexibility to move freely through all human emotions.
