What Nadine Levitt can say in an interview about
The Myths About Emotions:
- The way we deal with our emotions is not always healthy, and sometimes they can have disastrous consequences to our physical health.
- Having worked with kids and families on emotion workshops all around the country, there are consistent myths that come up that limit our emotional toolkit.
- Nadine can debunk these myths so that we can better understand how emotions really work!
(1) Emotions live inside us all the time, but unlike the Disney movie Inside Out seems to portray, emotions don’t control us, and we can’t control them!
(2) No emotions are “bad” or “good;” some are simply easier to process since they use rewards, while others are more challenging to manage,
(3) You cannot feel only one emotion at a time—they always come in groups,
(4) Big emotions do not necessarily lead to bad actions, and
(5) There are lots of things you can do to direct your emotions—just not how you might think!
- Levitt also has some simple daily rituals to share that set us up for success as we practice a healthy approach to emotions—individually or with family.
