Ever found yourself unable to put your feelings into words? Or felt overwhelmed by emotions that seem to have a life of their own? Many of us have been there—and fortunately, there is help.
In this episode of Building Resilience, we’ll explore the transformative power of affect labeling, a mindfulness technique that lets us name and navigate our emotions effectively. Using a variety of resources, from the comforting reassurance of worry dolls to scientific studies that explain why our emotions can feel so overwhelming, I’ll walk you through why recognizing, labeling, and even just speaking about our emotions can lead to a significant boost in our emotional wellbeing. Whether it’s talking to a friend, a coach, or even a worry doll, remember—your feelings are valid, and understanding them is the first step towards mastering them.
