Take the Resilience Quiz

59. Turning Toward the [uncomfortable] Feelings

In this episode, we're working on our element Hope... and resilience as well! We're still adventuring through The Roots of Resilience (laid out in one of Dr. Emmons book, The Chemistry of Calm). We're talking about the fifth root, "Turning Toward the Feeling." Specifically, those uncomfortable ones that we may want to run from or push down. Instead, if we want those feelings to move through us (and go on their way), then we need to turn toward them and give them the attention that they require.This can be a really hard practice to start, but we'll discuss a three-step process that is super effective at helping us face and move through these uncomfortable feelings. And, like any other skill, we'll get better and better at facing them every time we practice.
