Do this ONE thing to help with Emotional Health

iceberg in blue water

A year ago, my Executive Coach challenged me to read Pete Scazzero’sThe 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:

  1. What are you mad about?
  2. What are you sad about?
  3. What are you anxious about?
  4. 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.
