I’ve recently started using the phrase, “I make myself mad when…”
I used to say, “You make me so mad when….” or “It triggers me when…”
Taking ownership of my emotions has been a journey. Rather than giving the power to other forces, people, circumstances – I’m claiming ownership of my personal state.
I make myself angry, because of the story I tell myself about what happens.
When I live in a world of “If she would just talk to me differently, I’ll be happy” or “If they would just listen to me, I wouldn’t get so mad”
Angry, emotions and managing our hearts and minds is the topic of convo today with my great friend Josh Trent.
Josh is the Founder of Wellness Force Media and host of the Wellness + Wisdom Podcast.
During our chat we talk about how getting a grip on how your physical wellbeing impacts your emotional state.
We explore a concept borrowed from the AA community – the H.A.L.T. Theory (Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired).
We dive into the journey of finding greater consciousness and shifting what’s in your control.
Josh talks about the benefits (and challenges) of tracking tools like the Oura ring and glucose monitors.
We also explore the process of Emotional Inventory, how to dive into feelings like anger to get to know yourself better and much more.
