A year ago, my Executive Coach challenged me to read Pete Scazzero’s “The Emotionally Healthy Leader.” It entirely rocked my world, and challenged me to get in touch with my feelings.
I know. I feel like I need to do something manly after writing that last statement – maybe some push-ups or something? But let’s face it: Leaders need to deal with their feelings or deal with the repercussions of their feelings dealing them a blow.
Since reading his book, I have begun listening to Pete Scazzero’s weekly podcast, and will be slow reading (i.e. taking my sweet time) his “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality” best-seller.
Enough background, but what I am about to share is directly from Pete Scazzero. He calls this “the gift of exploring the iceberg.”
Here is the ONE thing to help with Emotional Health:
Journal (hand write answers) to the following questions:
- What are you mad about?
- What are you sad about?
- What are you anxious about?
- What are you glad about?
Join me in repeating this exercise daily through the COVID-19 crisis.
Enough reading my thoughts. Use this time to get real with yourself and how you feel.
Do some pushups if you have to as well.
