Sometimes, it can be so hard to name our emotions. You may know what you are feeling, but have no idea what to call it. You may sense that there is something happening in your body, but not know how to identify it.
Words help us to communicate our experiences to others. A single word can sum up the entirety of an experience, and allow another to connect and hopefully understand. If you say, "I am sad"...chances are, someone will know what that means.
To help in your quest for being connected with feelings, I have created a free printable core emotions chart. Print this out, keep it close, and use it to bring some power to your personal experience of emotions.
