1. EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER! A Kandid Chat w/ Dr. Ed Daube ”The Emotions Dr” The Kandid Shop Podcast LLC 27:21

I had the opportunity to have a kandid chat on the hot-button topic of emotions and

managing your emotions. I was joined for this discussion by a Clinical Psychologist, Blogger,

and Author of “Emotions as Tools” & “Beyond Anger Management,” Dr. Ed Daube aka “the

Emotions Doctor.”

Key takeaways:

  • Emotions are often not taught in our culture, leaving us to struggle with understanding and managing them.
  • The emotions as tools model help us to understand and use emotions to improve our lives and relationships.
  • Anger can be seen as a signal that something needs to change.
  • Emotions automatically put our body into fight-or-flight mode
  • Every emotion has a message, and understanding that message allows you to master your emotions as strategic tools.
  • Fear is a present-based emotion that signals a real threat, and it is always best to validate that fear and get out of the situation for your safety.
  • Anger management tends not to work because it teaches you to control anger, vs. learning to control your reaction and response, not the emotion itself.
  • Identify the physical sensations that tell you when you are experiencing an emotion, such as anger, anxiety or fear.
  • Practice managing your emotions to make them a habit.

By mastering our emotions and understanding their message, we can use the information they provide to move forward positively.
