TBE #027: How to Choose a Better Feeling Emotion

In this episode of The Balanced Educator podcast, we are chatting about how to get out of having negative emotions and to move into positive ones with a clear, concrete 2-step strategy.

Scientifically, our brains are always looking for something wrong in our lives, so it’s normal to feel negative emotions… It’s simply how we’re programmed as humans!

We refer to the emotional scale from the book “Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, which lists 22 emotions in order of the one that feels worst to the one that feels best. We talk about how to slide up the emotional scale, one emotion at a time.

We talk about the importance of having compassion for yourself when climbing up the scale feels impossible. Guys, it’s normal to feel negative emotions… Don’t be so hard on yourself!

We also share how to teach kids to move up the emotional scale when they’re feeling negative emotions.
