Episode 20: The Emotion Revolution: Navigating How We Feel and RULER for Personal Growth

If you’ve ever been to therapy, you’ve probably been asked the question, “how does that make you feel?” In fact, it’s often joked about that in the therapy world, that’s all you get asked! While therapy is more than just how you feel, being able to identify at any moment how you feel is an important part of life. In today’s episode, we are going to focus on emotions, a bit on feelings, emotional intelligence, and my favorite tool for helping you identify what is going on inside to be able to bravely express yourself and live more authentically: RULER.

What I Cover In This Episode:

  • How we can begin to use our emotions and how we feel about something to move toward being our authentic selves [1:40]

  • The ways in which certain emotions, or sensations, are experienced in different areas of our body [5:22]

  • A look at the different theories of emotions that exist [7:45]

  • The magic that happens when we can truly begin to understand our own feelings [14:20]

  • What “RULER” is and why it’s such a powerful (and my favorite!) tool to use when it comes to understanding my emotions [16:16]
