Periods of coping with life seem to be always followed by times of stress, where feelings determine actions. Emotional Fitness Training® challenges you to accurately name and measure feelings so that you stay in control of them rather than having your feelings control you.Feelings begin in chemical signals tied to primitive survival needs. Intense feelings want you to act and act quickly by running, fighting, or shutting down. Many of the signals that start an intense feeling are similar: your heart races, your breath comes quicker, and your body tenses. These are universal feeling clues, but subject to misinterpretation. Life experiences, including relationships, add another layer of complication. The desire for connection to others joins with the desire to feel good. The result? Some feelings are driven underground, not recognized, but remain hidden and troublesome forces driving our actions.The exercises in this book turn you into a skilled Feeling Detective.When you know what feelings are trying to boss you, you can measure their growing influence and act not as the feeling wants, but instead act wisely.Katherine Gordy Levine is a licensed therapist, former professor, and director of mental health crisis teams. She has helped thousands learn how to be a Feeling Detective, self-sooth and improve their Emotional Fitness.
