Using a Feelings Wheel to Improve your Emotional Agility
Hey Friends! Ever felt so caught off guard dealing with a situation that you couldn’t function for a minute? Do you sometimes struggle to roll with the punches? Feeling overwhelmed and blindsided by emotions is normal. Feeling stuck or frustrated is normal. We all experience emotional curve balls from time to time, but the key to navigating them successfully lies in your Emotional Agility.
Emotional Agility is the ability to recognize and regulate your emotions, especially in the face of challenging circumstances. It allows you to adapt to changing situations and respond in a healthy and productive way.
- A Feelings Wheel is a visual representation of your emotions and their variations, and it can be used in a variety of ways to cultivate your emotional agility.
- Feelings Wheels provide a framework for understanding and identifying different emotions.
- Feelings Wheels also help you expand your emotional vocabulary, become more aware of the nuances and patterns in your emotions, and gain insight into how different situations or events trigger certain emotional responses.
