No matter how charmed a person's life is, everyone experiences a range of emotions from joy, love and exhilaration, to sadness anger, and anxiety. Though a woman can't always change what happens in her life, she can have an impact on the way she responds emotionally. Darlene Mininni teaches women how to identify troubling feelings. She explains that emotions have a purpose, and if a woman listens to her emotions, she can use them as a guide to understand her deeper needs.

She has researched proven techniques that can reduce the amount of time unhappy emotions exist and decrease the distress they create. She covers the 7 "tools" and shows through research how practicing any one of them can change the chemicals that influence feelings in a woman's body. They include:

- Thought Shifting
- The Power of Quiet
- Finding Your Voice
- Putting it on Paper
- Movement
- The Power of Connection
- Reaching Out, Reaching In

She shows women how to personalize their Emotional Toolkits by using the tools that work best for them and for the emotion in question. Filled with case histories with which women of all ages will identify, the book provides a practical emotional education.
