The first step is to be aware of our emotions, how we feel them in our body and the thoughts and behaviors that accompany it.
This exercise will help you make sense of your experience and make it more coherent.
For a month, once a day, choose an emotion you have lived and answer these questions:
Body sensations that accompany it: How and where do you feel it?
Thoughts that accompany it.
Does it refer to the past, the future or the present?
What have you done?
What would you have wanted to do?
What caused it?
What does that emotion tell you?
Is it primary, secondary or instrumental?
Is it adaptive or maladaptive?
Towards what or where it drives you?
What is it telling you to do or decide?
Emotions offer you information about what you are really feeling, what is important for your welfare. But remember that they are not final, reasoned conclusions, that you have to take to action.
