Building Your Emotional Toolbox

In this week’s, Divorcing Well live video event, we talked about building your emotional toolbox and how you can increase your emotional capacity by using the right tools. Like anything else, it takes practice. I’ve found I get better at communicating and having the difficult conversations after I’ve done it a few times – which means, the only way I get better at this stuff is by d-o-i-n-g-  i-t!

Increasing your emotional bandwidth begins with good self-care.  If you’re not eating right, exercising, and getting the sleep you need, it will be hard to have the energy and patience to handle any emotional turmoil effectively.

Main takeaway– get a handle on how you’re feeling so you can communicate precisely and effectively.

And…

Give yourself time and grace – not everything has to be handled right now!
