Now what? 3 questions to ask yourself about the emotion.
Now that you have identified the emotion you are feeling, ask yourself these three questions:
What specific thing triggered this emotion?
Can I use the energy behind this emotion and trigger to make changes so I have a different experience next time?
If yes: What is one small thing I can do right now to move myself closer to feeling more neutral about this trigger? (address any fears it may be bringing up, write an affirmation 10 times that assists in neutralizing, find a guided meditation for release, practice how you will respond next time the trigger comes up)
If no: What is one small thing I can do right now to take a break from this emotion? (Yes you can take breaks from emotions! Consciously choosing to watch a movie, go for a walk, scroll social media, read a book, make a snack, is not avoidance is giving yourself the space to regroup and potentially come back with a fresh perspective!)
