Going through life without learning to be aware of our emotions is like walking through the dark without a flashlight... even though we have a flashlight in our pocket we could simply turn on.
Being aware of our emotions gives us an advantage as we go through life. It helps us be more prepared as we face life, it helps us learn more about ourselves and it helps us continuously grow and be better versions of ourselves.
A lot of us grew up having our emotions dismissed yet here we are working really hard to change this for our kids. You should be proud of yourself for the impact this will have on future generations and the world.
Here's a FUN ACTIVITY FOR KIDS on "Being Aware of My Emotions"
STEP 1 : ON A PIECE OF PAPER, DRAW A PICTURE OF YOUR HEART. DRAW A BIG ONE.
STEP 2 : DRAW A SPECIAL HOME INSIDE OF THE HEART.
STEP 3 : CHOOSE WHICH FEELINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO LIVE INSIDE YOUR HEART FOREVER AND DRAW OR WRITE THEM INSIDE YOUR HEART.
NOW SAY THIS OUT LOUD...
"I AM FRIENDS WITH ALL MY FEELINGS. I WILL ONLY ALLOW MY MOST SPECIAL FEELINGS TO LIVE IN MY HEART’S HOME.”
NOTE: The purpose of this activity is to gain awareness of where our child is without any judgement or transformation. Observe and enjoy your child's imagination.
