Being aware of our emotions is important, but how we process our emotions is what is going to take us to a new level of healthy emotional regulation and bring us closer to true authenticity. That’s why episode 99 of the Positively Living Podcast is about emotions, intuition, and authenticity!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Kristen Kubik shares the importance of creating space for yourself to process emotions in a society that doesn’t always support that and she provides actionable steps you can take right now to learn to work with and regulate your emotions.

Kristen and I cover the following topics:

  • The 3 basic functions of emotions and the purpose they serve. 
  • 3 steps that lead you from your initial feeling to taking action based on it.
  • The difference between root and secondary emotions and where emotions like fear and grief fall into the mix. 
  • How the expectations of society hinder the normal and natural expression of our emotions.  
  • Kristen’s practice for processing your emotions in a safe place at a safe time. 
  • Differentiating between detachment and dissociation. 

When we are able to process our emotions and tap into our intuition, we trust ourselves and are able to show up authentically.
