Increase your emotional vocabulary to pinpoint your emotions! Why?
Try this: Write down as many emotions as you can in ONE minute! Just simple words (nouns, adjectives, Verb). How many did you get? 7, 10, 15?
The richer your vocabulary is, the better you will be able to identify your emotions and act upon them. And this is even more relevant when we find ourselves in situations where our emotions are highly stimulated: we all have our hot buttons, our emotional triggers.
The way we direct our emotions to others can dramatically affect our decision-taking.
Understanding our emotions and what triggers them can help restore the communication link between our rational mind and how we feel.
