On this week's episode, we dig deep to discover the messages emotions deliver.  Yes, emotions enrich our lives, painting the human experience with both joy and sadness, but emotions also provide feedback on our values and what is important to us. Understanding the messages emotions deliver is the next step to leveraging that data to choose thoughts and actions that keep us moving forward toward our goals and focusing our energy in ways that align with our values. 
How do you like to show up in a heated moment? Explosively out-of-control or clear-thinking and decisive? In this episode, we add another layer to our emotional literacy with the language we use and the labels we create. With this understanding, we can calm our triggered brains to create space between stimulus and response -  to choose our actions and show up in a way that aligns with our values. 
Today we start the skill building aspect of Emotional Agility by improving our Emotional Literacy. Emotional Literacy means we can read our own emotions, understand how they effect us physically and have the language to express our understanding.
