The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those thoughts trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we're controlled by our emotions. Our lives would be much improved if we controlled them.
In LIVING BEYOND YOUR FEELINGS, Joyce Meyer examines the gamut of feelings that human beings experience. She discusses the way that the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and then - emotion by emotion - she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions. By doing that, she gives the reader a toolbox for managing the way we react to the onslaught of feelings that can wreak havoc on our lives.
In this book, Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses: the 4 personality types and their influence on one's outlook, the impact of stress on physical and emotional health, the power of memories, the influence of words on emotions, anger & resentment, sadness, loss & grief, fear, guilt & regret, the power of replacing reactions with pro-actions, and the benefits of happiness.

Read it, don’t listen to it.
I read this book awhile ago, and it helped me so much, so I thought I would get the audiobook to refresh while driving to work and back. The narrator is so bad, I can’t stand to listen to it. Self help books should be calming when being read to you. This narrator’s voice is very sharp, with no inflection, and she’s very clearly reading the book, while other audiobooks I’ve listened to made me feel like they were talking to me. I can’t process what she’s saying, because I can’t get over the narration. Definitely get this book to read, but I cannot recommend the audiobook.
