Increasing your emotion vocabulary and learning to identify your emotions can help you regulate and manage them more effectively


If you can name it, you can tame it.

--Dr. Dan Siegel

There is more than one way to describe emotions. Learning to identify these emotions may help you modulate them more effectively and can empower you to take control. 

Most adults have between 5-10 words to describe their emotions, so the more words used to describe emotions, the better they can be put into perspective.
