  • Do you feel emotional all the time?

  • Do you wish you could stop reacting in ways you later regret?
  • Do you “lose it” once in a while?

Did you know there is a significant amount of research about emotions and how they work? There is actually a model of emotions that has numerous clinical studies behind it and we can actually see emotions firing on FMRI research studies? Emotions are SO important we could not survive without them. But some people’s emotions fire faster and more intensely than others. For some, emotions just HIT HARD! ….and they are hard to recover from. Is this you?
