It’s not always easy to tell how we are feeling, but when we do, it’s much easier to express those feelings to someone else. This week, make an emotions chart for your room to help you practice identifying your feelings. Create a grid with each of the emotions below--add more if you'd like and maybe include a picture if you’re feeling extra creative! When you get up in the morning, look at the chart and ask yourself how you are feeling. Look at all the emotions and see if any one of them matches.
At the end of the day, go back to your emotions chart and think about a time during the day when you had a particularly strong emotion. Find it on the chart. What was the situation? How did you deal with the emotion? How would you like to deal with emotion next time? Did you use any of your GOTR skills? Maybe by the end of the week you could share the chart with someone at home or move it to a central location like the kitchen or family room where others could share their emotions during the day.
Emotions: Mad, Scared, Sad, Happy, Confused and Anxious
Variation: If you’re struggling with your emotions, take a look at your emotions chart, identify your feelings and think of a strategy you learned to help deal with emotions during the season at GOTR (Star Power, Stop and Take a BRthRR or I feel, when you).
