Understanding our moods and emotions helps us develop greater self-awareness. Regulating our emotions helps us make our emotions work for us, rather than against us, as we take action to reach our goals. These are both important keys to becoming more self-determined. Drs. Marc Brackett and Robin Stern at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence have developed an app for iphone that can help us become aware of, understand, and regulate our emotions. The app is evidence-based, visually appealing, user-friendly and, I can say from personal experience, it’s fun! To learn more about the app, go to www.moodmeterapp.com.
