As we continue to adapt reluctantly to the changing virus, work, school, weather and whatever else is coming next (Brood X Giant Cicadas?), we keep ensuring ourselves that it is almost over. I have also said that for over 14 months. The chaos is beyond our control, but we are responsible for our emotions and accountability.
Your emotions are watching you closely in our current times. Emotions trigger your brain’s first alarm, whether negative or positive. All of us have had the feeling that something is wrong, but you don’t yet know how to define it. You can learn to notice that your body is changing and then make choices about what is happening and how you will react before it’s too late. Unfortunately, people who have not grown their emotional muscles often react quickly and defensively, losing control of their energy.
