Wk 5 - Read Physical Cues and Tune into Your Subconscious

Published about 1 month ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

Read Physical Cues and Tune into Your Subconscious

As a leader, it's important to tune into your subconscious mind and recognize the physical impacts of emotions. Emotions can manifest themselves physically, and understanding these physical impacts will help you better manage your emotions.

Here's an action plan to help you tune into your subconscious mind:

  1. Pay attention to physical sensations: When experiencing a strong emotion, note any physical sensations accompanying it. For example, anxiety may be accompanied by a racing heart, sweaty palms, or shallow breathing.
  2. Identify patterns: Look for patterns in the physical sensations accompanying different emotions. For example, when angry, do you always feel a knot in your stomach? Identifying these patterns can help you recognize your emotions more quickly.
  3. Practice body scans: Take a few minutes each day to practice a body scan. This involves focusing on each part of your body and noticing any physical sensations. This can help you become more in tune with your body and recognize the physical impacts of your emotions.
  4. Use physical cues to manage emotions: Once you've identified the physical impacts of your emotions, use physical cues to help manage them. For example, if your breathing becomes shallow when you're anxious, take a few deep breaths to calm yourself down.
  5. Seek professional help: If you're struggling to manage your emotions or the physical impacts of your emotions, consider seeking professional help. A therapist or counselor can help you develop strategies for managing your emotions and improving your overall well-being.

By tuning into your subconscious mind and recognizing the physical impacts of emotions, you'll become more self-aware and better equipped to manage your emotions as a leader. You'll be able to recognize patterns, use physical cues to control your emotions and seek help if necessary.
