Whenever I share information about how our feelings affect the way our brain works, someone always has a story to illustrate it, even if they’ve never actually considered it before! One eight-year old, in trouble for throwing a brick at someone, told me that when he got mad his brain “got foggy. But when I bweaved,” he said, referring to an exercise we had just done to help him calm and shift his emotional state, “my brain, like cleared up like, and now I can fink straight!”
Someone once likened what happens to the brain during anger to a ‘self-inflicted lobotomy’ :-))))
I am passionate about the power of emotions - and about children! As a coach, counselor, mother and grandmother, I write stories, and share quotes, recent science and how-to tips to help with feeling, doing, and being more of what we want - as individuals, parents, and/or managing others! I also write books, and founded Applied Emotional Mastery at the beginning of this century. I try to be what I want to see :-) and I love your feedback!
