Hey Me, How You Doin’?

My partner : You ok? 

Me: I’m fine (in a curt tone)

Her: Have you had lunch? I think you might be hangry. 


Her: Whoa. Here, eat this. 

Me (15 minutes after eating): Wow, I feel much better. Thank you. I’m so sorry for snapping. 

The need to self regulate implies that we’re dysregulated. Are you? Would you even know if you were? I often don’t and I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s all part of this wild ride we call being human.
Checking in with ourselves, or taking our ‘emotional temperature’ is a skill that takes some practice. Tune in to CEC on June 26 for a chance to try, and chat about tuning in to yourself.
