If you’re familiar with the emotional ladder, you know the goal is to move yourself from one emotional rung to the next until you reach that place where you’re feeling really amazing.
But how do you move yourself from one rung to the next? How do you deliberately alter your own emotions when we have been taught all our lives that we have no control of them?
Here I have a list of techniques that you can use to move yourself to a better feeling emotion. Remember as you’re using techniques that you have to find what works for you and what moves you emotionally. If it doesn’t work for you, throw it out! I’ve also linked instructions for each technique. Enjoy!
