Discover how to cope with life’s surprises. Some people like to be surprised. They find it funny or exciting or simply interesting. They may seek out experiences where they’re likely to encounter the unexpected. Other people, however, are uncomfortable with surprise. It may make them feel anxious or stressed. Psychologists say that people who are comfortable with surprise are more emotionally flexible than people who aren’t. When life takes them by surprise, they cope without becoming upset. You can learn to be more flexible. Each time you’re confronted with a surprise, tell yourself, “This is an opportunity, a chance to be curious, to be creative, to think about things differently, to accept something new.” Find out more inside this book!
