In this week’s episode, I talk about a theme that keeps coming up in my work with clients, which is how to manage through difficult moments when there is high emotion or conflict. Oftentimes we feel that when we are in conflict – a disagreement, fight, a transgression – we need to solve it, ideally right then and there. The problem is that in that moment, when the emotions have taken over, we can’t access the tools to be able to get to resolution or connection. We’ve got to regulate before resolving. This can be easier said than done, though with awareness, we have greater ability to see that when we are stuck in the spiral of emotions we literally can’t access the tools to get to a productive conversation. And regulation simply means to calm the brain and the body…and in this episode I teach you how to do all of this! It’s a game changer!
