I had a great conversation with a client the other day on the difference between thoughts and emotions. While the differences might seem obvious, the surprising truth is that we often fail to take time to notice the nuances of what we’re thinking and what we’re feeling.
As a coach, I love supporting people in the process of taking more time to observe the experiences of both the heart and the brain. I have repeatedly found that the simple process of noticing what is happening when we think and feel goes a long way to moving towards personal insight and creating a more fulfilling space to reach your dreams or goals.
In just a few short weeks, my new book The Expat Activity Book: 20 Personal Development Exercises for Gaining Insight and Maximizing Your Potential Wherever You Are will be available for purchase on Amazon. One of my favorite exercises in the book is focused on helping individuals begin the process of looking at thoughts versus emotions. I’ve include it here as a sneak peak to the book and as a guide for those of you interested in bringing new insight into your life. I happily and enthusiastically accept emails for guidance or questions.
