How do you feel?
How are you aware that you feel that way?
What happened that made you feel that way?
How is that emotion influencing your actions?
It’s important to realise that feelings are a source of information. Our emotional reaction to a situation or a stressor is telling you something. Feelings aren’t an absolute truth. They are just an indicator of something else.
So, when you feel stressed, get curious.
When you’re angry, get curious – not furious!
When you’re overwhelmed, ask yourself “What is it about this situation that I feel is too much?”
Get curious about your emotions. Emotions are neutral. Neither positive nor negative.
They’re a source of information that can help or hinder you.
Your curiosity about your emotions will give you power over your emotions. And that will make all difference.
