Session 2: Emotional Expressiveness
Emotional expressiveness is the awareness of basic emotions as they occur and the ability to process them appropriately.
The ability to self-calm is using self-awareness to practice relaxation techniques and self-regulation skills to align our intellect, emotions, actions and words.
Self-care is choosing healthy behaviors that balance the effects of emotional and physical stressors.
Hardiness is our ability to place ourselves at the center of the controls and realize that challenges create opportunities for potential learning, growth and personal betterment.
The ability to self-replenish is recognizing when our inner stores of energy and positive experience are becoming depleted and doing what it takes to fill ourselves up again.
Self-supporting talk is challenging unproductive thoughts and replacing critical thoughts with more productive ones.
Optimism is remembering that our perception creates reality and that we must have hope to define our goals and make a plan to achieve them.
Sense of coherence is focusing on a sense of order and remembering that there are a great deal of resources available in life. During times of distress action eases despair.
Social support is about turning to the people who support you when you need them and remembering that reciprocating that support is key to a healthy relationship.
