Emotional improvement

How to change your life to a better way? Most of the time I think our emotions play important life when it comes to improving our inner life. When I looked it up on Wikipedia, it says that emotion is associated with mood, temperament, personality, and disposition. Can we say that emotions are feelings? I think so. Emotion can show how we truly feel about something. Furthermore, emotions affect our behavior and how we perceive things. I can say that sometimes my emotions can play tricks on me. Once or twice I feel like I don't know which way to go because of my emotional condition. You know that woman tend to use their emotional side more often than man, right? I stumbled upon this list on this website, the list shows us the points that can improve our life by making improvement on our emotional side.
