Better Living Through Emotions

Help you LIVE A GOOD LIFE

This Researcher Analyzed Hundreds Of Emotions And This Is What She Learned

Karla Mclaren has researched and written about emotions for decades.

Karla believes that emotions can be grouped into four “families” – Anger, Fear, Sadness and Happiness. In turn, each of these emotion families breaks down into more specific emotions, with seventeen distinct emotions in all. 

Then, Karla says, we feel each of these 17 emotions at differing levels of intensity – from “Soft,” “Medium” to “Intense.”

Understanding and working intelligently with our emotions is one of the most powerful ways to become more skillful at living.

How To Help Your Clients Fully Vet Any Decision

When faced with a big or difficult decision, it can help to think in extremes – in terms of best- and worst-case scenarios.

It’s often easiest to start with “What’s the worst that could happen?”

Follow up with questions like “And what else?” “Why does that matter?” “And what then?”

Then, move to “What’s the best that could happen?” 

Sometimes simply thinking and talking through both ends of a spectrum can bring clarity.

It can also help to remember that things seldom turn out as bad (or as good!) as we think.
