Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy suggests giving these emotions a name.
"Oftentimes we believe negative emotions are us, and we identify ourselves by our negative emotions. So, by externalizing your negative emotions and giving them an identity outside of ourselves it helps us to manage them better," she explains, saying in many instances things like fear or anxiety are based on evolutionary instincts we have in order to keep ourselves safe. But there are times when these innate safety emotions can act up too much
She suggests naming a fear something like "Jimmy." And then one can easily say, "Hey Jimmy, I got this. Thanks for your help."
Dr. Judy says it is ideal to thank the mind for having the emotion, but we want to avoid over-identifying with the emotion. The Doctors suggest using a name you are fond of because these emotions are a part of us and should be thought of as a friend.
