How aware of your emotions would you say you are? Being aware of your emotions is both important and extremely powerful.
Because when you’re aware of your emotions, it helps you manage them better. And when you manage them better, you feel them instead of bottling them up. Because when you bottle your emotions and don’t feel them fully, eventually you’ll get to the stage where even the smallest thing triggers you. People will look at you and wonder why you were triggered by something seemingly insignificant.
But the truth is, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
So, here are 3 simple ways to help you become aware of your emotions.
1. Notice and name your emotions as they arise.
2. Build your emotional vocabulary.
3. Keep a feelings journal and write out how you feel at particular times of the day and why you feel that way.
