Quite often we find ourselves commenting on unpleasant emotions that we may notice in those around us. We might say something like “Hey you seem really angry, is everything ok?”
This is a great way to tune in to someone’s emotional experience. Sometimes, though, we forget to celebrate, celebrate the pleasant emotional experiences.
Does this sound familiar?
This week we want to encourage you to “tune in” to a pleasant emotional experience. This might be acknowledging that someone around you is really happy, excited or overjoyed. You can use the same language and say “you seem like you are really happy today.”
Why, you might ask. When we tune into other people’s emotional experience, we send the positive message that we care about their emotions. Tuning in to pleasant emotional experiences allows us to share in those beautiful moments that life throws our way with those around us.
We would love to hear how you went. Email us at [email protected]
