You get to choose. You get to determine who is going to take your energy, and who is not. You can build the emotional muscle as much or as little as you feel fit. If you’d like more information about our online and face to face Power of YOU: EQ workshops, please contact Shawna.Moser@moserit.com .
Try this little exercise and NOTICE and CHOOSE. Take out a piece of plain paper and fold it into four quadrants. Do this without talking to anyone:
- IN the first quadrant, sketch a house in 30 seconds.
- IN the second quadrant, sketch a cat, but use your other hand (non-dominant)
- IN the third quadrant, with your happy hand, sketch a flower with your eyes closed
- IN the fourth quadrant, with your opposite hand and your eyes closed, draw a tree.
How do you feel? What do you NOTICE about your emotions? Which quadrant made you the happiest, made you laugh for example? It’s usually the hardest one, not the simplest. Try growing your ability to NOTICE and CHOOSE. You and I need to slow down, take ourselves less seriously and have a little fun. We’re not perfect – we never will be. And we hold the power to manage our energy through our emotions. Why not start now?
