Learning about Emotional Equations

on January 13, 2017

Some of our homeschooling doesn’t look like “regular” schooling. Okay, most of it doesn’t look like it lol. That does not mean they are not learning, nor does it mean they aren’t learning very important things.

Many people find it difficult to get to the base root of their emotional states. When one does not understand the root or cause of an emotion it becomes almost impossible to find a solution that effectively works long-term.

To that end, for some viewing their emotional states as equations can assist in further self-awareness. Further self-awareness can assist in higher levels of overall satisfaction with ones life as steps are then taken to ensure they get what they need out of various situations and interactions.

This is what some of our homeschooling looks like:


One important way we help with emotional regulation, encourage mindfulness, boost self-esteem and enhance our connections with each other is to use the gratitude journal I designed. We have a nightly ritual where we have a light evening snack while we write in ours and then take turns reading our entry for that day aloud. There has been a marked difference in my kids (and my own) levels of mindfulness have helped us not just to live more mindful and calm days, but coupled with the chart about have helped us to be better able to talk about not just our feelings but the root of them as well.
