Action Steps

  1. Name the feeling e.g. “I”m feeling fear” or “I”m feeling shame” and rate it on a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being intense and 1 being almost nonexistent)
  2. Notice where in your body the emotions is manifesting itself e.g. “I”m feeling shame as a tingling sensation in my forearms” or “I”m feeling fear as a pit in my stomach”
  3. Use your breath as an anchor and “watch'” the sensation change and eventually dissipate (It’s often a good idea to take 3 deep breaths to stabilize your mind)
  4. After the feeling has dissipated, reassess the intensity of the feeling which you assessed in step 1 (and notice if there is any change in the rating – no change is ok. The key is to notice whether or not there has been a change in the sensation/feeling )

Other Action Steps

  • Find a mentor
  • Figure out what is holding you back and then work towards solving that specific problem
