Managing emotions for ourselves and helping our kids learn to manage emotions can be a tough job. Heart Math’s Doc Childre says we need to change how we think and how we talk about emotions.
“Because the cascade effect of emotions throughout the body doesn’t depend on whether emotions are justified or not, we prefer to call emotions that add coherence and energy to our system “asset emotions” and emotions that cause incoherence and deplete energy “deficit emotions,” rather than labeling them “positive” or “negative”—terms that imply right or wrong, good or bad. The biological reality is more neutral than that. From the body’s point of view, emotions aren’t right or wrong, but we can say they’re either efficient or inefficient for our health & quality of life.”
