Have you ever been a situation that quickly shook your emotional balance?
Did you look back and think "if only I had handled that differently"?
There are so many times I have thought this! We are only human right?
I am thankful for making time for self care every day so I can catch a view of perspective for times like these.
I would think to myself...
"How could I have handled it differently"?
"What triggered me to react the way I did anyways"?
"What did I learn from this"?
"What can I do different next time"?
"What can I do to prepare myself to handle my emotions better next time"?
Yes! EMOTIONAL BALANCE... that is what we are after.
The more balanced we can stay, the more we can teach our kids to be balanced. We can literally hand all sorts of coping tools to our children by modeling for them.
So what can we do to prepare?
Have a go to tool to use at the first sign you notice your emotions becoming unbalanced. This can be things like -
First breath... you breathe in slowly and breathe out slowly. Relax your shoulders.
Second breath... as you breathe in say "I am safe. I am grounded. I will be okay."
Third breath... blow out the negative feeling as far as your lungs will slowly send the air and as you breathe fresh air back in, SMILE and say I GOT THIS!"
Healthy, Well, & Balanced Wishes for you and your sweet kiddos! 💌 Jamie
