Our emotions are physical sensations within us, they are feelings in the true sense of the word.
If we don’t develop effective ways of processing and releasing those feelings that energy stays in our bodies and we search for ways to distract us from them.
It’s not easy to begin talking about how we feel but I can help you to start. Talking about it helps to reset our internal alarms and brings good flow to our nervous system which can help reduce physical symptoms and anxiety.
The best way to help children develop good emotional literacy skills is by starting early - from birth.
I WISH I’d of had this knowledge when my 2 children were younger yet I’m so grateful that I have it now! Emotional Literacy strategies honestly makes a huge difference to connections with our children and other relationships in our lives.
It also helps gives children the tools to verbally express how they feel and the confidence and security to do so.
Children grow up and can learn to use the things we do to distract from feeling how they do, let’s give them the best chance that we can.
It’s not a guarantee but it’s a good insurance policy.
