How are you feeling today? Once you are able to identify your feeling, the next step is taking the appropriate steps. The truth is while there is a generic formula that fits everyone averagely, you may need to vary some of the parameters to suit your particular personality.

Here is a basic list, and it seems quite reasonable, right?

Tired                —>     Nap

Sad                  —>     Music

Stressed          —>     Walk

Angry               —>     Exercise

Burnt out         —>     Read

Feeling lost     —>     Pray

Overthinking   —>     Write

Anxious           —>     Meditate

For some people, their approach may have been using the same method for all their feelings, like the person who sleeps through every problem, pain or perplexity.

Tired                —>    Nap

Sad                  —>    Nap

Stressed         —>    Nap

Angry              —>    Nap

Burnt out        —>    Nap

Feeling lost    —>     Nap

Overthinking  —>     Nap

Anxious          —>     Nap

While thinking about this, I asked myself, is there a feeling and action list from scriptures like this that we can search and apply? The answer is yes! This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it can at least start you in the process of knowing what to do when you are feeling one kind.
