Episode 29: Emotions vs. Emotional Drama

podcast Sep 18, 2019

Why is it that one person can be annoyed and get back to their work, and another can’t seem to stop sharing their story to anyone that will listen?

It’s called Emotional Drama.

There are two ways we experience emotions – through the BODY and through the MIND.

One creates more drama and unnecessary stress, while the other simply allows the emotion to be a guidance system.

The good news is, once we cultivate enough self-awareness to tune into when we engage in Emotional Drama, we can take a step back to fully process emotion so that we don’t take action on anything we may regret.
