Today’s Lively Show is going into a subject that I’m fascinated by: the connection (or disconnection) between circumstances and emotions.
This is some new territory on TLS, we have touched on emotions briefly in this episode with Brooke Castillo, and today I’m going deeper into how we can chose to positively shift our emotions despite circumstances that would normally “dictate” otherwise. And, how by choosing positive emotions before things happen, situations unfold in better than “expected.”
This episode is perfect for anyone who is looking to have more positive feelings and less emotional reactivity to circumstances (or other people’s emotions) in their lives.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT
Even though our circumstances can vary, our access to different emotions is relatively limited.
The scale of emotions (see below) and how they relate and range in your life.
How our circumstances do not have to define where we land on this scale.
Why we don’t always need to feel the worst because of the worst circumstances.
Due to the large amount of circumstances and limited amount of emotions, the scale can help us identify where we and others are on the scale.
We can see what emotions we gravitate to the most, it allows us to have empathy for ourselves and others, we can question whether the emotion we are currently feeling is serving us in the situation or see if we can float to a higher emotion.
Can we choose our emotions before our circumstances?
Why we need to model our behavior for others so they desire what your secret is to adjust their emotion and mood.
We don’t need to attach our own emotional well-being to the moods of others.
