Our emotions are like magnets that can point us to true north. But they can be really hard to fully feel and dissect in our busy, everyday lives.

Also, as Jen acknowledges in this episode, a lot of this internal work can feel like naval gazing. There can be a temptation to either stay on the inside and never do anything with the new information acquired or to skip it altogether in favor of tackling something more active.

But the truth is that if we want to connect more fully to our values, we must begin by cultivating this deep self-awareness. And then - equally important - move towards action informed by what we learn.

We don't want to get stuck just in feelings. We want to progress to where we can identify the deeper truth that the feelings are trying to signal us to. And we explore ways to do just that in this episode of the Magical Mindset Moments Podcast.

Two Special Steps

Here are 2 special steps we can take when we're feeling big emotions when we're in conflict, struggle, or dissatisfaction...

First, ask which one of your values is bubbling up to the surface? Which one is being challenged or do you feel the desire to reconnect with?

Then, think about what you can say that will help you share what matters most to you and re-establish connection both with your values and with the people in your life?
